I'll Be Loving You Tonight
In 1981 Ray Sanders, who already had Billboard Hit Recordings for United Artists Records and was voted Best New Country Music Singer by the Academy of Country Music, moved from Los Angeles to San Diego to work with Rick Carlson. Rick was a talented singer, lead guitarist and keyboard player. Rick and Ray formed a five piece band and played at top night clubs. They recorded and wrote songs and, for over five years, became the most popular country band in the San Diego area. During those years, Ray and Rick co-wrote and worked with many songwriters and recorded demos for them in Rick's recording studio. A new and talented songwriter, Roy Ownbey (later Roy wrote the Award Winning, The Hank Snow Story), hooked up with Rick and Ray and that friendship has lasted to this day. Many early evenings Roy and Ray would be hard at work writing songs in Roy's music room and sharing a hot pizza. Roy gives sincere credit for his development as a songwriter to Ray's direction and influence. With all their music activity and all the good food, it's a miracle that they stayed so thin! I guess Roy's tennis playing and Ray's weight lifting paid off. This CD represents the collaboration of these dedicated friends to country music. Several of these songs are included in this album. Give a listen and download any that touches your heart. Enjoy a part of history in this country music. In the view of Rick, Ray and Roy, those five years represent for them A TIME THAT WILL NEVER BE AGAIN. Writer: The Fly On The Wall.
