Ray Stevens bills himself as the “comedy king of music city” but the country singer also has written some powerfully serious songs.
Stevens performs Friday at 7 p.m. in the Sharon L. Morse Performing Arts Center.
Stevens may be best known for gaining laughs with such hits as “Gitarzan” and “The Streak.”
But the same guy also wrote “Everything Is Beautiful,” an expression of religious faith and “Mr. Businessman,” a scathing indictment of greed.
One of Stevens’ most impressive arrangements and vocals came on an upbeat country version of the classic Johnny Mathis’ “Misty.”
