Ray Stevens - Voice Your Choice

Ray Stevens was born Harold Ray Ragsdale on January 24, 1939 in Clarkdale, Georgia. He was just 16 years old when he signed with Capitol Records. However, it wasn't until 1962 when Mercury Records signed him to a contract that his career started to take off. After several hits, including Ahab The Arab, he switched to Monument Records. He recorded both serious and comedic songs, including Gitarzan.

One of his biggest serious hits was Everything Is Beautiful, peaked at Number One on many charts around the world.

But it's his comedic side we are featuring on Voice Your Choice. Cast your vote at the Voice Your Choice page for either Along Came Jones or The Streak. I'll play the winner on next week's show.
