Michael Ray wants to make you nostalgic with his latest hit.

If Michael Ray’s latest hit takes you back to an earlier era in country music, well, the Florida native’s just fine with that.

“‘Whiskey and Rain’ has that Gary Allan feel I grew up on, It has that, Ronnie Milsap feel of the ’80s. (That) Bakersfield sound that I grew up on, loving it, with a ‘today’ spin on it.”

Michael claims he knew right away it was a lead off single. He explains,

“I think a lot of people relate to it because it has that nostalgic feel to it…it does feel like that back-in-the-day, ’90s, 2000 songs, but ‘today.’ And I think people are listening to a lot of that, ’cause it puts you in a great headspace, ’cause who doesn’t want to go back to ’95, you know, ’96, ’97, early 2000s?”

Even more than that, Michael loves that audiences instantly react to the first release from his Higher Education EP when he starts playing it in concert.

This Saturday, Michael’s Just the Way I Am tour will be at 8 Seconds Saloon, I’ll be there singing along to all his hits so be sure to come out & hang with me!
