Good afternoon Ray Stevens fans!! I'm sure you're aware of how busy Ray's been during the last couple of weeks...the second season of his television series getting underway, for example, and then the activity that took place during the CMA Music Fest. In addition to having a booth at the event Ray performed the National Anthem during the event's final night (June 12th). A video of his performance popped up on YouTube on June 12th. Ray recorded the National Anthem back in 2010 and it can be found on his We The People album. His performance and the song's arrangement heard at the CMA Music Fest is based on the 2010 recording.
A recap of Ray's CMA activities can be found in an article published by RFD-TV and can be accessed by clicking HERE. The page also features pictures of Ray at his booth signing autographs for fans. The CMA Music Fest, for those not familiar, used to be called Fan Fair. It's still called Fan Fair by a lot of people inside the music industry and by fans alike but it's officially billed as the CMA Music Fest.
HERE for those that prefer to get their music loaded directly to their listening devices.
