Michael Ray Honors Late Grandfather by Titling Sophomore Album, “Amos”

Michael Ray will release his sophomore album, Amos, on June 1. The title of the upcoming album pays tribute to his late grandfather, Amos, who helped foster Michael’s love of country music.

Michael first began singing and performing in his grandfather’s band when he was only 9 years old. The Florida native still plays Amos’ 1978 Les Paul guitar as a reminder of the time they spent together.

“The day I made my debut on the Opry stage, all I could think about was how he would be so proud,” Michael says. “So, when we started making this record, before I would record vocals on the song, I would ask myself, ‘Is this a song I would have played proudly for him?’ It makes this album that much more special to think he would have said, ‘Ray, that’s a good one.’”

Amos will follow Michael’s 2015 self-titled debut album, which spawned two No. 1 hits, “Kiss You in the Morning” and “Think A Little Less.”

Amos features 11 tracks including Michael’s current Top 20 single, “Get to You.”
