Boogity, Boogity – A Tribute to the Comic Genius of Ray Stevens is a tribute album recorded by country music singer/parodist Cledus T. Judd. It contains Judd's renditions of twelve songs previously recorded by country music artist Ray Stevens, largely with duet partners. Stevens himself is featured on the cover of "The Streak". "Gitarzan", featuring former Trick Pony lead vocalist Heidi Newfield, was the only single released from this project.

History[edit]

The album was originally slated for release on Koch Records on October 4, 2005.[2] However, Koch closed its Nashville division, and the album was ultimately issued by Asylum-Curb Records on August 28, 2007.
