A comment on the passing of Ray Price

First of all, my heart and thoughts and prayers go out to his family and friends. Thank you for sharing Mr. Price with the world.

Who's gonna fill their shoes has become a very relevant question this year ...

What did Ray Price's music mean to me? I am most fond of his 4/4 shuffle era with the walking bass ... my favorite song of his is "Heartaches By The Number" (written by Harlan Howard). I have had that song on my repertoire as long as I can remember.

Some friends of mine came over from Sweden earlier this year and they went to his show in Atlanta. They said it was very special and gave them memories for life.

That's what music is about, isn't it? To be touched, to have a memory that glitters in your mind and whenever you want or need to you can have a glimpse of that glitter again.

Thank you Mr. Ray Price for giving us so much glitter and touching so many. I honor your life's work. R.I.P.
