“From the moment we began playing ’One That Got Away’ in our live show, we could feel it was a special song,” Ray said after getting the good news. “What makes it even more meaningful to me is that’s it’s the first number one single from Amos, which personally is a record that means so much to me.”

The song was written by Nashville hit-makers Josh Osborne, Matthew Ramsey, Trevor Rosen and Jesse Frasure, “One that Got Away” now joins Ray’s previous No. 1’s “Think a Little Less” and “Kiss You in the Morning.”
