Tommy Volichak of Power Source Magazine in his album review had this to say:
TOUCHED is a spectacular CD that matches the major labels for production, pickers ,and songwriting. Ray graces us with twelve Christian Country selections of which I had a hard time selcting my favorites. The title cut is great, and I liked,"Walking On The Waves" and "Last Train To Glory"."Don't Be Fooled" is a clever twist on Elvis'"Don't Be Cruel" and adds a creative panache to Ray's resume. Thumbs up on this one.
Singer/ Songwriter Ray Owens, was raised and has spent most of his life in the town of McKinney, TX. He spent the years growing up in church and going to gospel singings. He always loved good gospel music and attempted to play drums and guitar in his younger days. His love for music and the ability to sing surely is inherited from his mother,Mary Owens as she and her sister sang in churches also. The Lord started putting songs in his heart to write about 1982 and he soon learned to play the Guitar.
His first recording was a cassette project entitled,"Gonna Be Leavin'" and the title song went to #2 on the Music Review in New York. Touched By The Hand of The Master is the current release and several songs from the album have been released to radio worldwide on Glory Train Records. The songs,"Long Gone",and "When We Sang The Glory Down" were #1 songs on the Gods Country International Music Chart as published in CMP magazine and Glory Train Express magazine.Anything that is accomplished is only by the help of the Lord and HE deserves all the praise and glory! It is my prayer that these songs will be a blessing and that you will be TOUCHED BY THE HAND OF THE MASTER
