COUNTRY MUSIC MOURNS THE LOSS OF A GREAT MUSICIAN AND FRIEND RAY EMMETT
Ray Emmett one of the great musicians in our country music industry has passed away at the age of 75. I do not have cause of death at this time. Ray was having several health issues for the past several months. I will have funeral arrangements sent out tomorrow when they become available. The funeral home will be Cole Garrett in Goodlettsville, TN.
The country music industry mourns the loss of our friend and one of the last great musicians from an era of the true form of traditional country music. A member of Faron Young’s Country Deputies Band for many years, he was one of the great bass players when there were super country bands in our industry.
In the picture above he is playing behind Darrell McCall during a Country Deputy Reunion broadcast on WSM from the Ernest Tubb Midnight Jamboree.
He will be sadly missed by all of us who knew him so well and called him our friend. Our thoughts and prayers go out to his wife and family in this difficult time of sadness in their lives.
MAY RAY’S SOUL REST IN THE LOVING ARMS OF OUR BLESSES LORD AND SAVIOR
