This might be the first time you’re hearing the name Michael Ray, but it certainly won’t be the last. The Florida native has been making a name for himself in the country music scene for quite some time – early memories include being onstage with his family, sporting a Kermit the Frog guitar – and he’s been making waves ever since. Ray has shared the stage with the likes of Alabama, Rodney Atkins, Luke Bryan, and Eric Church, and as well as being the winner of the CW’s “The Next” competition, continues to build momentum both on the road and in his current home of Nashville. Also – among the more novel of accolades – Ray was presented with the key to the city of hometown Eustis, Florida in 2012.
“Kiss You in the Morning” is a fun, uptempo, and rather sweet song featured on Ray’s 5-track Tour EP, and the acoustic video showcases Ray’s charisma and character alongside a complimentary lyrical groove. The song is light and fun – borrowing images typical in country and adding a slightly different spin with the hook, “I want to kiss you in the morning.” Definitely one for the windows-down summer playlist, “Kiss You in the Morning” is a track you’ll keep vibing to all summer.
