Ray Pillow At Grand Ole Opry Country Music Show - Nashville
Encouraged to work as a pop artist, singer Ray Pillow never had the true “country boy” look to him, but he knew that all he ever would be was a country singer. Born in July of 1937 in Lynchburg, Virginia, Pillow currently has eighteen charted singles and has been a member of the Grand Ole Opry since 1966. He came to Nashville in ’61 after winning regionals at the Pet Milk Talent Contest. He may have just narrowly missed first place in the finals, but his show gave him the opportunity to perform as a guest artist at the Grand Ole Opry. Five years later, he was a member of the prestigious show.
