KHAZ Country Music News: Ray Price Remembered
MOUNT PLEASANT, Texas (AP) – Country Music Hall of Fame member Ray Price has been remembered as both a musical innovator and a gentleman. Hundreds of people packed the service in Mount Pleasant, Texas – a town where Price had lived for 31 years. During the Saturday ceremony, a statement from Willie Nelson was read. In the statement, Nelson wrote: “Without a Ray Price, there wouldn’t have been a Willie Nelson.” Price died from pancreatic cancer a week ago. He was 87 years old. A funeral is set for December 28 in Dallas.
