Michael Ray’s New Single Makes Huge Impact on Radio


Michael Ray hasn’t released new music in well over a year, but his latest single “Get To You” was definitely worth the wait and is already receiving heavy amounts of support and has made a huge impact on country radio. The single was picked up by 36 Mediabase-monitored Country stations and ranks as the format’s most added song.

“Get To You” is a powerful ballad about a woman is is afraid to take a risk and keeps running away.

“I think everyone has been in a relationship that, at some point, causes them to question their ability to love full-heartedly,” said Ray. “This song is about tearing down those walls to help someone unconditionally love again, even if it is with someone else.”
