Edward Garvin Futch (born August 19, 1944, in Lafayette, Louisiana) is an American country music artist known professionally as Eddy Raven. Known for his Cajun-influenced country music, Raven has been a recording artist since 1962. He has charted more than thirty-five singles in his career, including the Number One hits “I Got Mexico”, “Shine, Shine, Shine”, “I’m Gonna Get You”, “Joe Knows How to Live”, “In a Letter to You” and “Bayou Boys”, as well as several more Top Ten hits, including seventeen consecutive Top Tens between 1984 and 1990.

Edward Garvin Futch was born in Lafayette, Louisiana, on August 19, 1944, as one of 11 children. Influenced by Cajun music, the country music sounds from popular radio broadcasts such as the Louisiana Hayride, New Orleans blues, and the new sounds of rock and roll, Raven first played in a band at age thirteen.[2] Raven later went to work for a radio station in Georgia, where in 1962 he self-released the single “Once a Fool” under the name Eddy Raven.[2] When his family moved back to Louisiana, Raven worked at a record store called La Louisianne, where he recorded and released his first album, That Cajun Country Sound.[1]
