(AP) – He may not have gotten the credit he deserved for it. But those in country music who know such things say Ray Price will be remembered for changing the sound of country music and setting trends that are still being followed today.

Price has died. He passed away yesterday from pancreatic cancer at age 87.

Among those remembering him is Ray Benson of Asleep at the Wheel. He says Price was “a giant” in Texas and in country music. Benson says aside from having “one of the greatest voices that ever sang a note,” Price had a career of more than 65 years “in a business where 25 years would be amazing.”

Price is best known for his hit “For the Good Times.” He was elected to the Country Music Hall of Fame in 1996, long after he had become dissatisfied with Nashville and returned to his home state of Texas.
