With his new album expanding upon the foundation he built when he first burst onto the country music scene with two No. 1 singles, “Kiss You In The Morning” and “Think A Little Less,” country music’s Michael Ray heads to Los Angeles Monday to celebrate his latest album, Amos, with his debut late night performance on ABC’s Jimmy Kimmel Live!.
The artist Rolling Stone dubs “an ace guitar player [who] can rip with the best of them” will perform his new single “One That Got Away,” which tied for the most-added upon impact at Country radio. The tune MusicRow declares a “bouncy, mid-tempo outing with loads of hooks” is a live-show staple, with fans singing back every word even before it was a single!
“Growing up in South Florida, there were those summer grooves that just felt anthemic,” shares Michael Ray. “On this album, for me, that song is ‘One That Got Away.’ The songwriters — Jesse Frasure, Trevor Rosen, Matt Ramsey and Josh Osborne — really knocked it out of the park with this jam. Taking it to the late-night television audience seems like the perfect stage as we celebrate the second single from this album.”
Amos borrows its name from Michael Ray’s grandfather, who inspired the country star’s music career by teaching him to play guitar and inviting him to play in the family band from the time he was 9 years old. The album combines Michael Ray’s lyrical roots in classic country with the upbeat rock riffs of today’s country songs to create a sound all his own. USA Today declares “the singer’s music spans semi-traditional to progressive, and he has the moves and attitude to make every note believable.”
Fans can catch Michael Ray playing a variety of fairs and festivals including Cheyenne Frontier Days this summer, and he will hit the road with Old Dominion this fall to play direct support on their Happy Endings World Tour. His sophomore album, Amos, is available now.
