I thoroughly enjoyed hearing Ray Stevens speak of all of the music he’s releasing this year! I already have ‘Great Country Ballads’ and ‘Melancholy Fescue’ downloaded and I’m anticipating the third release later this month, ‘Slow Dance’, and the fourth album in May! These albums showcase Ray’s amazing music arranging skills. Ray can read and write all kinds of music. I’ve read comments over the years from those in the music industry say how fascinating it is to watch Ray at work in a studio or see him fill out a sheet of music in minutes. He can write music for nearly any instrument. The late Norro Wilson once said that Ray “can write out the string parts; can write out the guitar chords…”.
