Having hosted numerous concerts at CabaRay since its opening in 2018, Ray Stevens has become a beloved figure in the country music scene. With a career spanning decades, the singer now feels the need to slow down his live performance schedule. While this marks the end of a significant era, fans don’t have to worry about Stevens retiring just yet. Instead, he plans to channel his energy into recording.
“I plan to stop performing regularly at my CabaRay Showroom here in Nashville at the end of 2024, but I’ll be going to work everyday in my recording studio and maybe I’ll do a few, a very few, shows in some old familiar places,” Stevens said in a statement.
“I’m definitely slowing down but I haven’t come to a complete stop. Not yet, anyway!”
