Ray Griff earned his nickname, “The Entertainer,” by being one of the hardest working artists in country music.  As a singer, he charted over 40 hits from the 1960s onward, and as a songwriter, he wrote over 700 songs for the biggest stars of country music: George Jones, Jim Reeves, Conway Twitty, Eddy Arnold, Dolly Parton, Mel Tillis, Ray Price, and many others.

Now, Real Gone Music presents Ray Griff: The Entertainer—Greatest U.S. & Canadian Hits, the first-ever anthology of Griff’s biggest chart smashes. Spanning the years 1967-1986 and seven (!) record labels, the anthology includes Griff’s charting sides for MGM, Dot, Royal American, ABC, Capitol, Vision, and RCA. Among the 24 songs are 22 U.S. country hits, featuring the classic songs “If I Let Her Come In,” “The Mornin’ After Baby Left Me Down,” and “You Ring My Bell” as well as Griff’s signature song, the Top 10 Canadian country hit “The Entertainer.” The collection is remastered by Ray Griff himself, and the notes by Greg Adams feature quotes and photos from the artist’s private collection.

Griff was inducted into the Canadian Country Music Hall of Fame in 1989 and is celebrated as one of Canada’s most successful country songwriters. The Entertainer—Greatest U.S. and Canadian Hits is a long overdue tribute to this multitalented international hit maker.
