Atlantic Records/Warner Brothers recording artist, Michael Ray, has been chosen as NRA Country’s Featured Artist for August. Read an exclusive Q&A with Michael Ray about the great outdoors at NRACountry.com.
The Florida native hit the top of the charts with his debut single “Kiss You In The Morning,” as did his single, “Think A Little Less.” His self-titled debut album reached the top ten on the Country Albums chart, and he is poised to become one of the top stars in the format.
“I was practically raised and learned my most valuable life lessons either on an air boat or in the woods with my father, grandfather, friends and family. Those times made me the man I am today, and I cherish the times I can get back out there in nature now as an adult,” said Michael Ray.
As an NRA Country Featured Artist, Michael Ray joins some of country music’s biggest acts including Hank Williams Jr., Florida Georgia Line, Lee Brice, Justin Moore, Gretchen Wilson, Aaron Lewis, Chris Janson, Dustin Lynch, Aaron Watson, Granger Smith and many more, in teaming up to celebrate their support of our brave men and women in uniform, appreciation for the great outdoors, and love of family.

About Michael Ray 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 #1’s 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.http://www.countryschatter.com/2017/08/nra-country-names-michael-ray-as-featured-artist-for-august/NRA CountryPress ReleaseAtlantic Records /Warner Music Nashville.,Get to You,michael ray,NRA Country Featured Artist,Warner/Chappell Music
