Michael Ray To Release Autobiographical Track “Picture”
Michael Ray has always cut songs that feel true to him, but nothing feels truer than his own story. Together with award-winning songwriters Michael Hardy and David Garcia, he penned his newest track “Picture” about memories of his family captured in photograph. The track, inspired by the passing of Ray’s uncle in June 2020, is equal parts loving tribute to memories past and grateful look ahead to those yet to come. “We wrote ‘Picture’ the day of my Uncle Terry’s viewing,” Ray said. “The night before, my buddy and I were going through photos and he said, ‘Isn’t it wild how, no matter what you do in your life, we’ll all just end up being pictures that somebody who loves us holds onto?’ Read the full story HERE.

Michael Ray says he makes better music when he’s surrounded by artist he admires
For Michael Ray, one of the biggest unexpected blessings to come from the tumult and change of 2020 was his “Honky Tonk Tuesdays” livestream series, a weekly event that he launched last April. “With the Honky Tonk Tuesdays stuff, [I’ve been] surrounded by that music that influenced me to move to Nashville,” Ray explains to Country Now. “Being around it just, even more, inspired me to write more, and to sing more, in that lane. To be more purposeful with what [I’m] writing. I think with this new record, I think a lot of that Honky Tonk Tuesdays stuff is what made this record what it is.” Read the full story HERE.
