Hank Williams played a huge part in bringing Ray Price to Nashville, back in 1951.
The two were roommates for 8 months, during 1952.
Hank Williams died on New Years Day, 1953.
My view on country music was forever changed when I had the chance to be Ray's publicist, in 2005. The time I was able to spend with the man had such a major impact on me, that I completely quit making fun of a genre of music that I hadn't had much respect for before that.
Ray Price is one of the most important American musical treasures we have, and ever will have. If you don't know much about him, I highly encourage you to check into this man's history and impact. He is truly one of the best.
