Ray Stevens brought us the pop classic "Everything is Beautiful," the insightful "Mr. Businessman," and the GRAMMY Award-winning arrangement of "Misty." He has memorably spoofed everything from Tarzan movies to trendy crazes, and he created his very own genre of comedy classics. Stevens' genre of music spans from pop, country, rock, bluegrass, and comedy. Stevens hosts "Ray Stevens CabaRay Nashville," a 30-minute weekly music/talk show airing on public television. He recently opened his very own Nashville entertainment venue, the CabaRay Showroom, a 35,000-square-foot music venue where Stevens performs weekly live concerts.
