Auteur compositeur Country US né le 27 Février 1944 à Shamrock (Texas). Gene Price a accompagné Merle Haggard et composé avec Buck Owens. Il est décédé le 13 Août 2013.

Country music's Gene Price achieved his success within the orbits of Buck Owens and Merle Haggard, the two leading exponents of "the Bakersfield sound" during the second half of the 1960s. As a musician, Price's primary instrument was the bass, which he played on some of Haggard's studio recordings and on-stage during 1969-1970, including the 1969 live album Okie from Muskogee, on which he was also featured singing lead on "In the Arms of Love," a song he'd co-written with Owens. His work also turned up in the hands of such performers as Owens protégé Susan Raye and Bakersfield pioneer Wynn Stewart (both of whom covered that song). His other compositions include "The Biggest Storm of All," "Natural Born Loser," "Across This Town and Gone," "Something's Wrong," "I'll Be Alright Tomorrow," and "I've Carried the Torch Much Too Long" -- all of those were written in collaboration with Owens and date from 1969-1970. As one might gather from that song list, Price's greatest strength lay in ballads.
