"Ray Stevens' Nashville" Moving From RFD to Public Television

by VVN Music

At the young age of 77, Ray Stevens is as busy as he has ever been.

Two years ago, he published his first book, a look at his life and the city he calls home with Ray Stevens' Nashville. Since then, he has released a number of albums including gospel sets and his new holiday album, Mary and Joseph and the Baby and Me, made a myriad of videos and hosted the series Ray Stevens' Nashville on the RFD network.

After one season, that show is moving from RFD to Public Television and is being rebranded as Ray Stevens CabaRay Nashville.  Keeping the variety format of the former program, the show provides Stevens with a showcase for his comedy (and sometimes serious) music along with a long list of guest stars that, in the past, have included Bobby Bare, Charlie McCoy, Tanya Tucker, Bobby Goldsboro, the Bellamy Brothers, Bill Anderson and Janie Fricke.

The show is shot at Stevens' own television studio at his Nashville Music Row office complex with the first series for the new season being recorded in mid-December. The program will be on Public Television stations around the country starting on January 7. Check with your local station for availability and time.

...and, if all of that wasn't enough, Stevens is currently building a new Nashville music venue, Ray Stevens CabaRay, which he hopes to open next year.

Great news. Ray Stevens is very entertaining, and his show with guest star Bobby Goldsboro was fantastic.
