Ray Vega (born July 28, 1961) is an American country and adult contemporary artist.

In the 1980s, Vega performed with his brother, Robert, as The Vega Brothers. The duo were signed by MCA Records and their single "Heartache the Size of Texas" peaked at No. 54 on the Billboard Hot Country Singles chart in 1986.[2]

Vega was signed to BNA Records as a solo artist in 1996. His debut single, "Remember When," peaked at No. 56 on the Hot Country Singles & Tracks chart. The song was produced by Josh Leo.[3] After the disappointing response to the single, release of Vega's debut album, also titled Remember When, was cancelled; however promotional copies did make it into the marketplace. A second single, "Even More," failed to chart in the United States, although it reached No. 57 on the RPM Adult Contemporary chart in Canada.

Vega later made a pop album, 1999's Geography, that was released in Germany by BMG. Dusty Drake cut one of Vega's songs, "And Then," and released it as his debut single in 2002.
