Eddie Ray Franks Jr.
"Hello - my name is Eddie Ray Franks Jr. Retired Army in 1992 after 26 years, singing country music ever since I was 6 years old. I am a singer and songwriter of country music. I had my first guitar lesson at the age of 6 from Johnny Horton; I grew up on the Louisiana Hayride. My heroes were my Uncle (the late Tillman B. Franks) and my friend, the late Johnny Horton. I have played in NCO clubs on many bases around the world, as well as various retirement homes - all for the love of entertaining and putting smiles on someone's face. I've played in a few nightclubs here and there and have presently settled in to focus on my music and writing songs. I am currently working on some new material and in the process of getting some of my music recorded on a new CD. I have co-written songs with Bo Gerbig Jr., Tillman Ben Franks Jr., the late Michael Benning and my brother John R. Franks. I have been fortunate enough to work with great musicians and great songwriters like my cousin Tillman and musicians like Dexter Mathis and Dean Mathis. Tillman has written songs for me that are unbelievable, like "Naw", "Just Country", and "I Was Country When Country Was You" and co-written songs with me like "Howl At The Moon", "Keep On Loving You" and "Just Another Bump In The Road". My cousin Tillman has been my inspiration and drive to keep me going in this business. Dexter Mathis has been my vocal coach and pulled the music out of me. Dean Mathis (Dexter's dad) has given me inspiration to keep on singing my style of music. Without these three guys, I could not do what I do. I owe everything to them."
