For over 50 years, Ray Stevens has been performing for his adoring fans. He is known as a country singer and comedian, often blurring the genre lines. He has two Grammys for his songs “Everything is Beautiful” and “Misty,” but is also just as well known for his songs “Mississippi Squirrel Revival” and “The Streak.”
He is a true talent, with records in the country, country comedy, and Christian genres as well as being a successful songwriter. Stevens has been inducted into the Nashville Songwriters Hall of Fame, the Georgia Music Hall of Fame, and the Christian Music Hall of Fame, and has sold gold and platinum-certified albums.
With all those accolades, you’d think someone would be satisfied, but not Stevens – he still had big dreams to accomplish. One of his big dreams was to open his own music venue, and it is officially becoming a reality on January 18, 2018.
According to a press release, Stevens is “finally ready to unveil his new state-of-the-art Nashville showroom, CabaRay.”
The grand opening is set for January 18, 19, and 20.
“This whole process has been a real labor of love for me,” Stevens said in the press release. “It took some time to get the building fully constructed and iron out all the kinks but I’m thrilled to say we’re finally ready to open the doors to the public. We’d hoped to open last year…but better late than never!”
CabaRay will feature a dining area for 500 people downstairs, with beverage service for 200 more upstairs in a theater-style seating area. The top floor will also feature the Bill Lowery High Spirits Emporium, a true piano bar with musician John Jonethis delighting guests with incredible music.
Country music’s funnyman plans on hosting weekly dinner shows Thursday through Sunday, eventually adding Wednesdays into the mix as well as other performers.
