The last album of Country Music Hall of Fame member Ray Price, “Beauty Is…the final Sessions.” continues to generate praise from fellow artists, the media, and legions of fans.  The disc features duets with Vince Gill and Martina McBride and both artists were honored to participate in the project. 
Gill, who traded lines with Price on “Beauty Lies In The Eyes Of The Beholder” recently told Rolling Stone, “Ray was one of those guys who never lost a step with his voice – even well into the end of his life, he was still singing great.  You can hear that on the record: It’s not manipulated, it’s the real deal. Very few singers keep their voice intact like that their whole lives.”
Martina admits to a being flattered by the invitation to sing with the Country legend.  “I was so honored and surprised to be asked to sing with him,” she recalls.  “Ray carried himself so well and still had this amazing voice. That’s the voice that we all loved.” McBride and Price made magic on “An Affair To Remember.”
Even artists who didn’t participate in the history-making recording are praising “Beauty Is…the final Sessions.”  Merle Haggard, who recorded previously with Price, sums up his thoughts on Price and the disc, saying: “Excellence personified from the beginning to the end.”
Lynn Anderson calls the album, “A fitting encore for those of us who want more from the Tony Bennett of Country Music.”  She observes, “Among the beautiful string-laden ballads is an old-timey Shuffle with a steel guitar, a fiddle and perfectly understated harmony.  Sensitively produced by Fred Foster, timeless songs sung by the best.  Classic Country.”
Ray Benson of Asleep At The Wheel fame calls “Beauty Is…the final Sessions.” “an amazing record.”  He adds, “Ray was one of my musical heroes and it’s so wonderful to hear his voice again.  He proved that we can get better with age.”
The media has heaped accolades on Ray and the album, with Robert K. Oermann of MusicRow stating, “After one listen of this remarkable album, you will note that Price’s flawless phrasing, vocal resonance and burnished warmth of tone create a glow that lingers long after the final notes have sounded.”  Duncan Warwick wrote inCountry Music People, “I can’t imagine liking another album more this year … and I’m not just saying that because it’s Ray Price.  It’s one of the most moving listening experiences I can ever remember.” SiriusXM Willie’s Roadhouse on-air talent Dallas Wayne said recently, “Beauty Is is not only the name of this brilliant recording,Beauty Is Ray Price.”
