Vince Gill and Paul Franklin join the Museum’s Dave Paulson to discuss the music of Ray Price and the Cherokee Cowboys. In 2023, the musicians released a new collaborative album, “Sweet Memories: The Music of Ray Price & The Cherokee Cowboys,” which digs deep into the repertoire of Price and his storied band. “Sweet Memories” is the follow-up to Gill and Franklin’s acclaimed 2013 album, “Bakersfield,” which explored the songs of Buck Owens and Merle Haggard. Accompanied by photos and videos, the program includes audio clips of Price’s original renditions of songs such as “Danny Boy,” and “Walking Slow (and Thinking ’Bout Her),” followed by Gill and Franklin’s versions. This program was recorded on August 4, 2023.
