Fresh off of his label EP debut Getcha Some, BBR Music Group/Stoney Creek Records’ exciting newcomer Frank Ray was hot on the road visiting police departments and schools throughout New Mexico and Texas last week, donating school supplies and Bose S1 Pro Portable Bluetooth speaker systems in partnership with Bose.
Visiting Picacho Middle School in Las Cruces, NM, Columbus Elementary School in Columbus, NM and O’Shea Elementary School in El Paso, TX, Frank put on special acoustic performances of his brand-new songs as well as shared his journey of growing up in New Mexico, to becoming a police officer for ten years, to following his dream of becoming a Country music artist.
Never forgetting where he came from, Frank also visited the Las Cruces Police Department, where he was an officer, prior to turning in his badge for his guitar, and the El Paso Police Department, where Ray brought an ice cream truck, so officers could come and “getcha some” ice cream during their shift change.
Declared “a cohesive EP that you will want to listen to again and again” by Country Swag, the six-song project, which features his Top 20-and-climbing single “Country’d Look Good On You” encapsulates the bilingual entertainer’s personality with flair, swagger, fun, wit, emotion, heart and kindness. Produced by Frank Rogers, each song on Getcha Some was co-written by Ray to deliver a well-rounded sampling of the former police officer’s talents and character. Listen to Getcha Some HERE.
About Frank Ray: Frank Ray is a former police officer, Texas chart-topper, and bilingual recording artist opening doors for a modern Latino Country movement. Growing up both enriched in his Mexican culture, three miles from the border in New Mexico and surrounded by Country music in Texas, Frank was immersed in the best of both worlds and has been harmonizing the two since. Described as “easygoing contemporary Country with pop-soul hooks and a dash of Southwestern spice” (Rolling Stone) Frank’s music is a blend—drawing influences from ‘90s Texas Country, Latin, R&B and Pop. As an entertainer, Frank delivers engaging, high energy performances that have a little something for everyone. It’s with this cross-cultural appeal and his panorama of influences that the Los Angeles Times proclaims Ray “is looking to stretch Country music’s cultural boundaries.”
In the three short years since embarking on his musical journey full-time, he has racked up two No. 1 singles and three Top ten singles on Texas Country Radio, become a staff songwriter, landed Frank Rogers as his producer, signed a record deal with BBR Music Group/Stoney Creek Records and much more. In addition to being named an “Artist to Watch” by Rolling Stone, Ray has appeared on USA Network’s Real Country, been profiled in the Los Angeles Times and on NBC’s TODAY. He has also toured the nation and shared stages in support of artists like Luke Combs, Kane Brown, Brett Eldredge, Luke Bryan, Kip Moore, LANCO, Old Dominion, Hunter Hayes, and more. The versatile entertainer’s label debut EP Getcha Some is available now and features his Top 20-and-climbing single “Country’d Look Good On You.”https://www.countryschatter.com/2022/08/frank-ray-gives-back-in-honor-of-label-debut-ep-getcha-some/Charity EventPress ReleaseColumbus Elementary School Columbus NM,Frank Ray,GETCHA SOME,O'Shea Elementary School El Paso TX,Picacho Middle School Las Cruces NM
