PENNINGTON, RAY (1933-)

Ray Pennington was a vocalist and led a western swing band in the Cincinnati area. He later became a recording artist and eventually a well-known producer and part owner of Step One Records in Nashville. His early production activities were at King Records in Cincinnati, where he directed a lot of the Stanley Brothers recordings in the 1960s. He was also co-writer of two of the Stanley Brothers’ most popular King records: “Stone Walls and Steel Bars” and “Don’t Cheat In Our Home Town” (the latter also recorded by Ricky Skaggs).
