Ray Stevens is known and beloved to fans as a versatile musician, comedian, singer and songwriter. Now you can add author to Ray’s list of accomplishments. Ray is set to release his book Ray Stevens' Nashville, detailing his life and career, on June 22.
Nashville takes readers from Ray’s humble upbringing in Georgia to his musical career in Nashville, where he became a successful singer, songwriter and music publisher.
“When I first came to this city, Music Row was not fully developed and the music business was mostly in the downtown area,” Ray notes in a release about the book. “It was very different then but still today, it feels like home to me.”
The book recounts the key moments in Ray’s career, including recording with Elvis Presley and making his first records. Ray also touches on his battle with prostate cancer and embracing technology like YouTube to promote his videos.
