Singer-songwriter Ray Stevens is developer for 27,000 square-foot CabaRay
Grammy Award-winning singer-songwriter Ray Stevens broke ground Friday on CabaRay, a 27,000-square-foot music venue off Charlotte Pike in West Nashville.
The building planned at 5724 River Road will include a 700-seat showroom for live shows.
Stevens also plans to relocate his Ray Stevens Music offices — now at the corner of Grand Avenue and 17th Avenue South on Music Row — to the West Nashville venue.
“It’s really easy to get to,” he said about the new location off Interstate 40 and Charlotte Pike being only 10 minutes from downtown and near the growing Bellevue area.
Parkes Construction Co. will handle building CabaRay, which is expected to be completed within 10 months.
The showroom area will include a dining area, a full-service kitchen, bar areas upstairs and downstairs, ticket and management offices, restrooms and a gift shop.
A recording studio and an upstairs video production area will be part of Ray Stevens Music’s operations at the new building.
Parking will be available for around 275 cars and a half-dozen tour buses.
Last fall, Stevens began hosting the “Ray Stevens’ Nashville,” a 30-minute weekly music/talk show on RFD-TV.
Stevens has sold more than 40 million albums with songs such as his multi-million selling hit “The Streak” and classic pop standard “Everything Is Beautiful.”

Make sure you join our Newsletter to get the latest information including when we will be taping again for the show! Thank you!
This is the coolest thing! Its going to be the quality theater that Nashville has needed for the longest time! Will Ray and company be looking to put other entertainment in the theater for blocks when Ray is not performing? As a long-time producer/entertainer I was wondering if there would be opportunities for other acts- specifically a quality improv comedy show or a comical dinner-theater show! They would be a great compliment to Ray’s incredible shows! And offer even more for locals and visitors to enjoy! Would LOVE to know.

I’m 54 years old, and have always delighted in watching and listening to Ray Stevens. In this generation of so much negative media, and modern day technology, I would delight in knowing how to buy ticket to watch Ray Stevens live. I’ve just found out about the building of CabaRay Nashville, on Face Book page, today 9-10-2017. I’d like to know when the project is to be completed, and how soon the show will begin, please. He is a very talented person, that brings joy and laughter, which is very much needed in the times we live in. Looking forward to further information. Sincerely, Mrs. Peggy Rittenberry
