Michael Ray has finally given an update on his upcoming album, Amos. He named the album after his late grandfather, who was a heavy influence on the tracks.
According to Sounds Like Nashville, Michael said in a press release:
“The day I made my debut on the Opry stage, all I could think about was how he would be so proud. Looking back, that moment was a pivotal one–our family lost its patriarch. 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 releases on June 1. It’ll also be available for pre-order on April 20.
