Biography

Eddy Raven (born August 19, 1944 in Lafayette, Louisiana) is an American country music singer and songwriter. Born Edward Garvin Futch, he learned to play the guitar from his father whom is a doctor in Lafayette, Louisiana, and by the time he was 13, he had his first band. An outstanding baseball player, he attended the University of Southwestern Louisiana on a baseball scholarship but any hopes of a Major League career were dashed by a severe injury. Influenced by Cajun music, the country music sounds from popular radio broadcasts such as the Louisiana Hayride, New Orleans blues, and the new sounds of rock and roll, Raven developed his own unique sound. His songwriting abilities led to him being signed by Don Gant to a publishing deal with Acuff-Rose Music that eventually led to him moving to Nashville, Tennessee where he started recording for himself in 1974. In the 1980s, Eddy Raven had a string of top ten songs, including 8 that went to No. 1 on the country music charts. Those songs include "I Got Mexico" (1984); "Shine, Shine, Shine" (1987); "Joe Knows How to Live" (1988); and "In a Letter to You" and "Bayou Boys" (both 1989).
