Michael Ray @ The Grizzly Rose

Michael Ray brought the heat to The Grizzly Rose on May 19, 2023 in Denver, CO. Supported by one of THE best weekly bands at the rose: Brandon Jones Band.

Michael Ray

Michael Ray Roach is an American country music singer and songwriter from Eustis, Florida. He has released two albums for the label: Michael Ray and Amos.

Ray was born in Eustis, Florida. His grandfather Amos “Wilson” Roach played music for him and taught him how to play guitar. In addition, he also had him perform at assisted living centers. Ray chose to form a band in southern Florida after graduating high school, and a disc jockey at WPCV began playing his music. Eventually, in 2010, Michael released an album independently, which was eventually discovered by manager Tony Conway.

Ray then went on the singing competition The Next: Fame Is at Your Doorstep, which he won. On that show, he was mentored by John Rich of Big & Rich. Because of this connection, they then co-wrote Big & Rich’s 2015 single, “Run Away with You”. Following his victory, Ray was signed to Warner Brother Records Nashville.
