I was country when country was country...
Hello my name is Eddie Ray Franks Jr. Retired Army in 1992 after 26 yrs, singing Country music every since.
I had my first guitar lesson at the age of 6 from Johnny Horton. I grew up on the Louisiana Hayride.
My hero's were my Uncle the late
Tillman B. Franks and my friend the late Johnny Horton.
I have played in NCO clubs on many bases around the world.
I have also preformed in various retirement homes for the love of entertaining and putting smiles on someones face, played in
a few night clubs here and there...I have settled in to focus on my music and writing my songs, I am curently working on some new material
and in the process of getting some of my music recorded.
I have a New CD 'The Best of Eddie Ray' available from CD Baby
which I co-wrote songs with Bo Gerbig
Jr. , Tillman Ben Franks Jr. , the late Michael Benning and my brother John R. Franks.
You can go to www.thevmf.org to get a copy of The Long Black Wall plus they are selling a new cd with
2 songs that I donated along with songs that other artist donated to help the homeless Vets.
