Proud of East Texas: Janie & Ray Price


Janie Price was married to iconic Country Music Star Ray Price for over 43 years. Price, an East Texas native, died in December of 2013, and now his widow is helping his fans celebrate his life by promoting his last album, and providing personal items for the Ray Price Exhibit at the Texas Country Music Hall of Fame in Carthage.

Janie's favorite recording of her late husband's is "You're the Best Thing That Ever Happened To Me." It's the song that Price dedicated to her and insisted that her photo be on the cover.  She's also especially fond of "For the Good Times," because she says it changed their lives after Nashville turned their backs on "Price for his New Sound."

Price made hundreds of hit records and is considered one of the all time great voices of country music.
