Rarely in life do we get to honor someone whose singing style ushered in a new way to do it. Ray Price passed away December 16, 2013, and Country’s Family Reunion is honoring Price’s memory by getting together those who knew him best with a CFR Ray Price Tribute.
Janie Price, Ray’s widow, joins Bill Anderson and a room full of Ray’s friends, band members and country artists who all paid tribute to his songs, his style and his life. Here are some of the people who came to the taping: Johnny Bush, Darrell McCall, and friends like John Conlee, Larry Gatlin, Gene Watson, Janie Fricke, Jeannie Seely, Moe Bandy, T. Graham Brown, Wade Hayes, Tracy Lawrence, Johnny Lee, Ray Pillow, Curtis Potter, Bill Mack, Linda Davis, David Ball, Teea Goans, Jim Lauderdale, Jim Ed Brown, Mo Pitney, Jan Howard and Roy Clark.
“What an honor it was to have so many great artists in one room to pay tribute to such a remarkable artist. The stories told not only by the artists, but by his lovely wife are absolutely great,” says executive producer Larry Black.
It truly is a tribute to the man who brought us songs like “City Lights,” “Release Me,” “Crazy Arms,” “Heartaches by the Number,” “For the Good Times,” “Night Life” and so many more– songs that were sung by his friends to honor his memory.
