Goodbye, Farewell, and Amen: Ray Price (1926-2013)

Ray Price's rendition of Willie Nelson's song "Night Life" is a persuasive meeting of four genres: country, blues, jazz, and gospel. Although, he began his career emulating the sound of his friend and mentor Hank Williams, he developed quickly into an artist that bucked categorization. When he started using a string section on some of his records, many fans turned their backs on him, but Ray did things his own way, and made no apologies for doing so. Rest in peace.
