and the Last Call Band
Russell Ray is making waves. In music circles, that's a very good thing. Growing up with Greg Gilley as one of your best buddies will put you around some influencial sounds, like... Mickey Gilley for one. But of course, when we're young, we rebell. So, Russell Ray started a rock band. No surprises there. Then he became a cop. Okay, there's a little surprise. But ofcourse the music kept calling, as it always does, and now Russell Ray is one of the hottest Texas country acts around. Ray's current offering is "COCKTAILS IN COZUMEL" (Ranch Records) and it is an eleven plus five treasure. (for the newbies, that's eleven tracks plus five, count em, five bonus tracks) Most of the cuts are songwriting results of Russell Ray, Ken Reynolds, and Doug Deforest, a formidable trio whose talents are truly expansive. Ray covers the Baker Knight hit "Girls All Get Prettier at Closing Time," made famous by Mickey Gilley. Trust me, Mickey never did it like this. It's a country rocker that will get more than your toes moving. Duane Propes (Little Texas) is covered on "Bigger Than Dallas" and there are a host of talent co-writes on this disc. In the hunt for an Album of the Year nomination, this disc is well-produced, expertly performed, and certain to make more waves as Russell Ray shines bright as a Texas star. Get the disc for $13.99!
