Nashville Mayor Megan Barry has officially declared today, Wednesday, January 10, 2018, as Ray Steven Day in honor of the country and comedy music legend’s numerous accomplishments and contributions to Music City, USA.
“I am deeply grateful to the honorable Megan Barry and the people of Nashville for giving me my very own day,” says Stevens. “It’s especially meaningful that it’s on the day I’m sharing my CabaRay Showroom with my family and friends in the music industry for the first time.”
Recognized as a Nashville music business icon, Stevens will open his newest improvement to the city’s evolving music culture and community by opening CabaRay — a 35,000 square foot state of the art music venue — to the general public on January 18, where he will perform for guests weekly.
Twelve-time nominated and two-time Grammy® Award winner Ray Stevens has spanned the generations with 60 years of comedic musical talent, including songs such as his multi-million selling hit “The Streak” and his classic pop standard “Everything Is Beautiful.” Throughout his career, Stevens has sold more than 40 million albums and continues daily office operations at his home base, Ray Stevens Music, located on Nashville’s historic Music Row. Stevens hosts Ray Stevens CabaRay Nashville, a 30-minute weekly music/talk show airing on Public Television. The music legend will soon open his very own Nashville entertainment venue, the CabaRay Showroom, a 35,000 square foot music venue set to make its debut in January of 2018. The Ray Stevens: Everything Is Beautiful display is currently featured at the Country Music Hall of Fame & Museum where museumgoers can view items from Stevens’ storied career.
