11/08/10 Don Ray Sat On the Couch

Out of Nashville, TN comes the rocking blues sound of the Don Ray Band. Don sat with us this evening and talked about his musical journey.

Beginning with playing drums with his father's band at the age of 10, to his move to Austin, TX and his playing with many of the top bands from that area to his new collaboration that brings a fresh sound to the blues.

In January 2010, Blues Underground Network awarded their album ON TOP OF THE HEAP “2009 Best USA Blues Album”, “2009 Best Overall Blues Debut Album” and ranked them #2 on the Top 25 Best Worldwide Blues Albums of 2009. In April of 2010, Real Blues Magazine placed their 2009 debut album at the #1 spot on their Top 100 “Must Purchase” Blues chart.

This past August brought the album Lonesome Rider and its collection of wonderful songs and lyrics.
