MICHAEL RAY

He may have a pair of number one singles to his name, but Michael Ray knows better than most how to best cultivate a dedicated fanbase. "Nothing is better than doing it one fan at a time," the country singer says with steely determination. The man speaks from personal experience: before breaking out with his 2015 self-titled debut, an eclectic musical articulation of a time-tested talent featuring twin smash singles in "Kiss You in the Morning" and "Think a Little Less," Ray spent years building a hardcore audience in his native Florida. With one name-making show after the next, the Eustis, Florida native built a grassroots following never caring the size, scope or reach of his show. Nonetheless, his rowdy, high-energy and rock-influenced live performances, which drew inspiration from Garth Brooks' use of passion and spectacle, soon took hold and quickly saw him selling out 2,000-seat venues in cities from Orlando to Tallahassee. But he was never satisfied: as he's proven in the years since, having moved to Nashville and grinded for years as a songwriter before leading a major-label record deal, hard work doesn't scare Ray. It's why even now, as he readies to release his much-anticipated sophomore album, anchored by its fast-rising lead single "Get To You," the singer still believes each live show he performs is undoubtedly essential.

Adam Sanders - Opening Act

In 2009, Adam made the move to Nashville. While working construction on the side to pay the bills, Adam's songwriting opened to co-writing, and building core relationships in the business. After just two years, Adam landed his first publishing deal with Big Yellow Dog Music and has had songs recorded by superstars such as Luke Bryan, whose album Crash My Party (featuring Sanders' "Out Like That") had the third highest debut of any record in 2013. Since then, more of Adam's original songs have landed on projects by artists including (friend and fellow collaborator) Cole Swindell ("Ain't Worth The Whiskey" & "Dozen Roses and A Six Pack"), Dierks Bentley ("Sounds of Summer"), Dustin Lynch ("Hell of a Night") and Scotty McCreery. He scores his first #1 single as a songwriter in March 2015, when "Ain't Worth The Whiskey" hit the top of the chart and had a second #1 with "Hell of a Night" in the summer of 2015.
