Did You Know: Ray aspires to create a network of
              schools and programs of creative and
              performing arts for underprivileged

His Challenge: Ray says, "I love Country Music yet
               would someday like to perform in a 
               Broadway musical."

His Goal: "I want my music to be able to touch
          people's hearts. Dolly Parton has been my
          main inspiration since I was a child and I
          would love nothing better than to someday
          record a duet with her."

On His Fans: Ray enjoys interacting with his fans
             whenever possible. "I love talking with
             and getting feedback from all my fans. I
             particularly enjoy my youngest fans who
             sometimes have the most difficult
             problems."

Strangest Fan Request: "One time a fan asked me to
                       autograph her boob so that she
                       could have my signature 
                       tattooed. She had her 
                       boyfriend with her, so I 
                       figured if it was okay with
                       him, why not!!!"

On Music: "It has been a passion all my life, a God-
          given gift that touches my soul. I want my
          music to make a difference, to touch the
          lives and hearts of the people who listen
          to it."
