March 2017 brought Michael Ray his 2nd #1 with “Think A Little Less” off his debut self-titled album. This followed his first #1 single, “Kiss You In The Morning” which went to the top spot in just 24 weeks. Ray continues to grow his following, having toured with Sam Hunt, Kip Moore, Brantley Gilbert and Darius Rucker and just recently wrapped up his 1st 40 city headlining tour. With two #1s under his belt Michael Ray is definitely making his mark on Country Music.
Michael was raised in Eustis, Florida an hour from Orlando, and grew up hunting alligators and fishing for tarpon at the end of white sand dirt roads. The child of a family full of musicians, he began his professional career before he was a teenager, graduated to the bar scene as soon as he could drive and hasn’t let up on the pedal since. When he decided it was time to move to Nashville, the work Ray had put in began to pay off quickly as he landed a publishing contract with Warner/Chappell Music and a record deal with Atlantic Records / Warner Music Nashville.
