Country music is one of my favorite types of music to listen too. My teammate and good friend, Meredith, always listened to country music when I was with her. During my sophomore year of high school I started listening to: Jason Aldean, Luke Bryan, Kenny Chesney, Brad Paisley, Keith Urban…. I started to listen to Darius Rucker and his opening act is, Michael Ray.
28 year-old country music singer and song writer, Michael Ray Roach (known as Michael Ray) is from Eustis, Florida. Ray was discovered by John Rich (Lead singer of the country duo, Big and Rich) when he won the singing competition, The Next: Fame Is At Your Doorstep. Ray currently has a contract with Warner Music in Nashville. Ray released his first single, “Kiss You in the Morning,” with Warner Music.
Ray co-wrote one of Big and Rich’s well-known songs, “Run Away With You.” His album, Michael Ray, was released on August 7, 2015.
Ray has a very strong voice and sounds like, Kenny Chesney and Blake Shelton, when he sings. Look out for Ray this summer in Mansfield on July 30 with Darius Rucker at the XFinity Center in Mansfield, MA!
