Amos is Available for Pre-order Now; Available Everywhere June 1 Ray Will Kick Off Pickin' for a Purpose Benefitting Wrigley Cares May 31 at Warner Music Nashville
NASHVILLE, Tenn.— “Some relationships aren’t meant to last, however that doesn’t mean they are any less significant,” Michael Ray shares observantly. He’s referring to his newest track “One That Got Away,” from his forthcoming album Amos, which celebrates that one person who might be out of your league yet you pursue them anyway. It’s the latest advance-release from his forthcoming June 1 album. “‘One That Got Away’ takes what would normally be a sad experience and flips it to embrace those moments. I think this song really celebrates one of the best parts of growing up--taking that risk on a relationship and opening yourself up to something that could be really great," shares Ray. The track was written by Josh Osborn, Matthew Ramsey (Old Dominion), Josh Rosen and Jesse Frasure. “One That Got Away” is the newest song available to fans when they pre-order Amos and follows the release of the poignant breakup ballad “Her World Or Mine,” the pop-heavy album opener, “Fan Girl” and the Top 20-and-climbing single “Get To You.” Amos Track Listing with songwriters:

About Michael Ray Country singer-songwriter Michael Ray was a hit right out of the box, scoring both with critics and on the charts. With Country Aircheck boasting there are "big things on the horizon for Michael Ray" and his live shows lauded by USA Today as simply “lip-smacking good," the Florida native backed up that praise with two number ones from his 2015 self-titled debut album with “Kiss You in the Morning” and “Think a Little Less.” His sophomore album, Amos, named for his grandfather and produced by the legendary Scott Hendricks (Alan Jackson, Faith Hill, Blake Shelton) will be released June 1. The album has already spawned the hit single “Get to You,” now climbing the Billboard charts and praised by Rolling Stone for its “impassioned chorus” and Ray’s impressive vocal range. Inspired by his rescue dog Wrigley, Ray created the charitable initiative Wrigley Cares: Helping Animals in Need, collecting donations for local animal shelters at every stop on his “Get To You" Tour in partnership with Zappos For Good. This summer Ray hits the road to play a variety of shows and festivals including Carolina Country Music Fest 2018 and will play direct support on Old Dominion’s Happy Endings World Tour this fall.
