Chanteur Rockabilly US originaire de Jackson (Tennessee).

Rayburn was born and raised in Humboldt Tennessee which is close to Jackson , Tennessee. He made his first recordings for the legendary Sun label in Memphis. He was taken there by a friend WS "Fluke " Holland who of course played drums for Carl Perkins another Jackson resident and later for Johnny Cash right up until Johnny's health made him quit the road. WS had left the Perkins band to take some time off the road himself and he had discovered Carl Mann working in a local club. WS worked with Mann at Sun to produce such great records as "Mona Lisa " There was a club in the area called the Pineridge that stayed open late and musicians would drop in after their own shows. There would be a regular jam with Carl Mann, Kenny Parchman and WS among them. Smoochy Smith then only a teenager was working in Kenny's band and later played piano on one of Rayburn's sessions. Rayburn Anthony played the club often and WS and he became friends and WS took him over to meet Sam Phillips. Rayburn recalls being asked to sit down at a keyboard and sing a few songs. He expected them to set up the band to see what he could do but Sam liked what he heard and signed him from that keyboard session. Three singles were released on Sun "St. Louis Blues" , "There's No Tomorrow" and "Big Dream." Altogether Rayburn recorded about sixteen tracks at Sun having either WS Holland or Tony Austin on drums and Eddie Bush on guitar. Only a few of the unreleased tracks as "Hambone" have been issued on the many Sun compilations. Rayburn was at Sun 1959 / 60 when Sam was moving to the new Madison Avenue studios and when the whole music scene was changing so he was never recorded on out and out rockabilly Sam even bringing in an outside producer Vinnie Trout who used strings on his last session. Rayburn remembers Elvis would drop by the studio sometimes usually when he and his friends were renting the rollerink or the local movie theatre.
After Sun Rayburn started to write more often with friends like Tony Austin and Gene Dobbins. He got his first big cheque with Dobbins when they got the B side of Sandy Posey's hit "Born A Woman" with their song "Caution To The Wind." Sandy also cut another of their songs. At this time he was writing for Bill Black's publishing company. Next Rayburn moved to Nashville to be in a better position to get songs cut and he went to work at Scotty Moore's Music City Recorders. He had met Scotty in Memphis and this new association gave him lots of studio time to work on his demos.
He began to work on the road with Billy Walker and this led to Walker recording several of his songs with two reaching the top ten. "Sing Me A Love Song To Baby" reached number one and earned Rayburn an ASCAP award. Other acts to have recorded his songs include John Conley, Charlie Louvin and Melba Montgomery , Vern Gosdin, Conway Twitty / Loretta Lynn , The Jordanaires , Charley Pride and Jerry Lee Lewis. The well known Scottish group Colorado also recorded several of his songs.
Rayburn has recorded for a variety of labels including Mega, Stop, Polydor and Mercury. His many chart records include "Maybe I Should Have Been Listening" and "Shadows Of Love." On Mercury he was produced by Jerry Kennedy and once had Reba McEntire singing on one of his tracks "Easy." While on Stop he had "A Hundred Yards Of Real Estate" recorded by the Jordanaires on their album "Monsters". This album was later released in Britain on Ember Records with some additional tracks.
Today he is connected to Rhythm Bomb Records. He just recorded his second CD for the german label. He has seven children: Jeff, James, Sally, Austin, Kayli, Colin, and Summer. Rayburn currently lives in Humboldt, Tennessee.
