Yesterday, there were rumors – false reports of Ray Price’s death circulated the internet. Tonight, we got official word from Billy Mack Jr., spokesman for the Price family, who confirmed that Ray Price died this afternoon.
That is a name all of us who love country music will never forget. The first song that comes to mind for many is “For the Good Times.” But for me, the Ray Price songs that stick in my mind go back a lot farther. “Heartaches by the Number,” “City Lights,” and “Crazy Arms” will remain among my favorite country songs, but this wonderful entertainer.
Sending thoughts toward Texas tonight, and lifting the Price family up in prayer. We’ve lost a good one. He has left us with so much.
