Michael Ray

“My grandfather used to do a Sunday morning gospel show on the radio with my second grade teacher,” Ray said with a laugh. “When I was 9 years old I wanted to learn how to play. I started playing guitar with my grandfather. Two, three nights a week we’d play community centers, Moose Lodges, assisted living homes, the VFW. I grew up with him on very, very old country music, I grew up playing Porter Wagoner, Bobby Bare, Earl Thomas Conley, Merle Haggard, Waylon - that was my first introduction to country music.”

Not long after, he went to his first big concert: Garth Brooks in Orlando.
