Christian Gospel Artist
Ray Sanders was born in Hardin County, Kentucky in a log cabin home that was said to be a bit like the one Abe Lincoln was born in. His education in his younger years took place in schools in Kentucky, but college took him to Texas Western in El Paso, Texas where he got interested in the western way of life. At one time six foot two Ray said he wanted to make a home in the southwest someday.
While he was in El Paso, he said in an article in an old Cowboy Songs magazine that he started working at KHEY which was a 10,000 watt station back then. The station booked him for personal appearances all around the southwest in places such as El Paso, Tucson, Arizona; Albuquerque, New Mexico and more.
He came back to Kentucky and worked with WLEX-TV out of Lexington. Later on, he was singing on the Mutual Radio Network. That got him in touch with many folks in the business and one of them was Hal Smith from Nashville, Tennesse. He got Ray a recording contract with Cullman Records and was booked on tours throughout the country.
When he got to appear on the WSM Grand Ole Opry, it got the attention of Libery Records who signed him to their roster and because of that, he moved to Hollywood to work on his recordings. Of the first six records he did with Liberty, he had seven songs hit the national charts. They reported that one disc jockey poll voted him number six best new singer.
In addition to his music interests, Ray had some business interests as well as being a writer and an electronic technician.
Some of the records that he did that did well for him included, "Dynamite", "Walking Blues" and "This Time". In 1959, he did a tune with the backup of the Jorndanaires - "I Can't Resist You" b/w "I'm So Afraid".
