Tony Ramey

Tony Ramey grew up in West Virginia on Bluegrass and Bill Withers; found Willie, Waylon, Cash, and Kristofferson at eleven, who compelled him to write songs; then heard Steve Earle who made him move to Guitar Town to hone his craft; and he left for Texas when the road called him out again…

Somewhere in the middle of all that he acquired a Masters, taught at a university while working on his PhD, and garnered Gold and Platinum Records as a songwriter in Nashville.  Currently he tours the US and Texas, where he has been named 2016’s Independent Artist of the Year by the Texas Country Music Association.

With the latest release Soul Survivor, featuring a duet with the iconic Willie Nelson (also a new fan of his music), Ramey is still grabbing the attention of industry people, and growing his audience by leaps and bounds because of his undeniable prowess as a singer/songwriter, and his passion for playing live. There is no doubt he prefers the troubadour life-style, and the solace of his writer’s getaway between shows where he says he can “be alone with nature, his thoughts, and the eternal spring of the Art Spirit.” So until now, Ramey spent much of his music career flying below the radar, but his recent touring schedule and album releases are getting noticed.
