This year we are excited to bring you multi-platinum recording artist Michael Ray. Forged on the small stages of Florida’s rural communities, Michael Ray has created an impressive foundation. Four No. 1 songs – RIAA Platinum-certified “Think a Little Less,” RIAA Platinum-certified “Whiskey And Rain,” RIAA Gold-certified “Kiss You in the Morning,” RIAA Gold-certified “One That Got Away” — with over 1 billion global streams, over 650,000 album equivalents, and over 150 million YouTube views, he is a true country star who’s performed at the Grand Ole Opry more than 65 times. Looking to expand his sound, Ray sought out CMA Album of the Year Award-winning producer Michael Knox. The pair have taken his brand of country to a new level for Dive Bars & Broken Hearts, Ray’s six song EP arriving June 23 via Warner Music Nashville. Currently on the road headlining shows through the summer, he’s taking his music where it matters: to the people. For more information, visit MichaelRayMusic.com or follow him on Instagram and Twitter @MichaelRayMusic and Facebook.com/MusicMichaelRay.
Supporting Ray, will be hometown born, Nashville based singer/songwriter Alannah McCready. McCready has made a lifelong habit out of pouring her heart and soul into every task she puts her mind to. After high school, she attended University of Wisconsin-Madison and was part of two NCAA Women’s Hockey National Championships. "I think having to be disciplined at an early age when you're playing a sport and being pushed and tested like that, carries over,” she observes. But as much as the job came naturally to the multi-faceted talent, music remained heavy on her heart until one day she had an epiphany that is was now or never to pursue music professionally. It's that looming fear of 'if I don't do this for myself, I'm never going to reach these goals. This new music, "I feel like I'm finally in the lane that I should be in," McCready says of the album that took a decade to be ready for and allows her to feel completely confident and solid in knowing that this is my lane I want to be in and this is how I want to sound and how I want people to see me as an artist.
