Ray Price

avatar

Price hit Nashville in the early 1950s, rooming for a short time with Hank Williams. When Williams died, Price took over Williams' band, the Drifting Cowboys, and had minor success. He was the first artist to have a hit with "Release Me" (1953), a song made famous by Engelbert Humperdinck in 1967. However, Price became one of the stalwarts of the grinding, honky tonk music that became even more popular in the early 1950s with such singers as Hank Williams, Lefty Frizzell, Webb Pierce and others.
