Ray Stevens is a true pioneer of Music Row in Nashville. He was a life-long friend of the late Chet Atkins, and he would produce Dolly Parton, and he would also record with the late Waylon Jennings.
Earlier this year, as Digital Journal reported, Stevens opened his CabaRay showroom in West Nashville.
Ray Stevens stated that it is a true honor to be recognized in Nashville, especially in a place where there are so many talented people. He ascertained that Nashville really is “Music City,” and he is stoked to have been a small part of adding to that music scene since he moved in town in 1962.
