Tony Ramey is a singer/songwriter to be heard, and heard often.  And so are his wife, Debbie Money-Ramey, and their daughter, Savannah. And heard all three were heard in solo, in duo, and in trio style at The Texan Theater Saturday night, (June 23, 2018). The Texan is in Greenville, where The Rameys make their home. It was the third concert for the musical family at The Texan

This one was accented by a special announcement made about halfway through the 2-hour concert. Savannah, who just graduated high school and accepted to Schreiner College in Kerrville, signed up to received a music scholarship.

It was a Schreiner College employee, Michelle, who rolled out a signing table, draped with an identifying cover, and called Savannah over. Smiles everywhere, especially from proud papa and mama, Tony and Debbie. Michelle explained that this scholarship, though it is because of Savannah’s musical abilities, does not require her necessarily to major in music. Savannah can pick whatever major she wants to, and still receive the tuition money. Pens flew back and forth between the two young ladies as both put down their Michelle Henry or Savannah Henry on the contracts.

Then, Texan Theater owner Barbara Horan’s brother, who is the chef there, brought out a special cake honoring the occasion. The chocolate cake was made to look like a vinyl record and featured the artwork used on Savannah‘s recent CD cover. It took the young lady by total surprise.

Tony, with three back-up musicians on stage, opened solo covering Merle Haggard‘s “Rambling Fever,” when went into several of his own penned songs, each with a short story about how they came into being, including his “Never Been To Texas,” which has been recorded by Johnny Lee and Jason Meadows. Then, he brought Debbie out, who belted out some songs herself, solo, including “Tell Me Why.” Next, Savannah opened with the classics “Jolene” and “Don’t It Make My Brown Eyes Blue.”

Then, the duos and trios kicked off. Tony sang his original, to which Willie Nelson also recorded to make it their duo, “The Bible, The Bottle, and The Gun.” And so it went, with the trio singing “Looking For Love In All The Wrong Places” and “Grandpa, Tell Me ‘Bout The Good Ol’ Days.” And more, so much more!

Closing it down as a trio, all three added and blended their leads and harmonies to the 1975 hit “Rhinestone Cowboy,” written by Larry Weiss and made popular by the late Glen Campbell.
