Country music legend Ray Price to perform

Written by 

Ray Price, a country music singer, songwriter and guitarist who has often been praised as one of the best male voices in country music, will be in concert at 7:30 p.m. Aug. 10 at the Smoky Mountain Center for the Performing Arts.

Price is best known for hits such as “Danny Boy” and “Crazy Arms.” He served as a United States Marine in World War II, was Hank Williams roommate, and has worked alongside such greats as Willie Nelson and Merle Haggard. He has won two Grammy Awards, two Academy of Country Music Awards and was inducted into the Country Music Hall of Fame in 1996.

During his long and distinguished career, Price has used his wide-ranging baritone to reinvent hard core honky-tonk and gain success with lushly arranged love ballads aimed at the country-and-pop crossover market.

Tickets start at $18 and can be purchase online or by stopping by the theatre’s box office at 1028 Georgia Road in Franklin.
