Country Music Hall of Fame Exhibit Honors Ray Price

One of country music’s greatest singers will be honored next month when the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum in Nashville opens a new exhibit titled For the Good Times: The Ray Price Story. The exhibit opens Aug. 4 and runs through June 2007. A contemporary of Hank Williams, Price scored several hits before his honky-tonk classic, “Crazy Arms,” spent 20 weeks at No. 1 in 1956. During the ’70s, the Texas native expanded his reputation as a balladeer with hits such as “For the Good Times” and “I Won’t Mention It Again.” At age 80, Price still tours extensively. His schedule includes a Sept. 29 performance at Nashville’s Ryman Auditorium. He was inducted into the Country Music Hall of Fame in 1996.
