Ray Franks was born on July 17,1940 in Kinross Michigan. At age 13, while delivering newspapers to the Kincheloe Air Force Base,he became friends with Staff Sgt. Gene Acklin. Sgt Acklin told Ray, if he would deliver him a newspaper for One month,free of charge,he would give him an old guitar he had. Thus, Ray bought his frist guitar, and started on his Country Music career.
Around age 14, with no musical backround at all, Ray and his father, Truman Franks, proformed for local square dances, at which time he started playing his frist piano.
At age 19, Ray used to go to the Canopy Bar, in Grand Rapids, Michigan, and listen to Herb Brown and the Grand Valley Playboys. Herb..., just like Sgt Acklin began to notice Ray's interest in Country Music, so almost everytime Ray came in, Herb would ask Ray to sit in with the Playboys. Eventually, Herb would take occasional nights off, and Ray would fill in.
Shortly thereafter, still at the age 19, Ray formed his frist band, The Can't Hardly Playboys.
Since then, Ray with his unique style and sound, has played Stage Shows, Rodeos, Nightclubs, Radio and Television.
He has also given numerous Benefit Shows for the Handicapped.
Ray at age 31, recorded his frist record with Jewel Recording Co., in Cincinnati Ohio, at which time he became a member of Broadcast Music Inc...
