Michael Ray has released his new single, “Whiskey And Rain,” available now on all platforms accompanied by a performance video, from his forthcoming third project.
“Country music fans have allowed me to grow through my last two albums, and I can’t thank them enough for believing in me and the music. I’m very proud of everything we’ve done,” shares Ray.
“And with this project especially, I really reminded myself that I’m a fan too,” he continues. “It was a country music song that made me pick up a guitar and move to Nashville ten years ago. Keeping a fan-first mindset gave me the confidence to include really honest, vulnerable songs. It’s different than anything I’ve ever done.”
Written by Josh Thompson and Jesse Frasure and produced by Ross Copperman, “Whiskey And Rain” echoes Gary Stewart and Gary Allan, melding vintage sounds with modern country in sad commiseration.
