Ray Stevens

“Unchained Melody” isn’t what you would consider to be a country song, but singer-singer writer Ray Stevens put a unique country twist on this classic. It’s a fresh spin on this favorite Righteous Brothers song.

Ray Stevens is also a comedian, so he had some fun with the video. Dressed as hillbillies, Ray and his band tackle the song. “Special effects” put them on a river bank.

As funny as the special effects are, the version of song is really terrific for country fans. I have never heard this song with banjos or a country twang.

You can listen to Ray’s version of “Unchained Melody” in the video below.

I love hearing a new twist on an old song. It’s easy to do a repetitive cover, but Ray Stevens completely changed it up for country fans!
