Ray Charles In CMT 100 Greatest Love Songs (2003)

 Ray Charles pays tribute to
the song 
Behind Closed Doors.
Joe Nichols and Sara Evans co-hosted one of the biggest concerts of summer as CMT welcomed country music fans worldwide to Nashville on the eve of CMA Music Festival/Fan Fair. An array of stars performed the Top 12 songs from CMT's list of 100 Greatest Love Songs. The fest took place at Nashville's Gaylord Entertainment Center on Wednesday, June 9 and was taped for telecast as part of a six-hour special, CMT 100 Greatest Love Songs, aired on Sunday, June 13. The songs were showcased with a documentary counting down from numbers 100 through 13 and climaxed with a concert counting down the Top 12.
Ray's rendition of Behind Closed Doors was magnificent:
