Brandon Ray~ Q & A!!!


1. Hi Brandon, what is the story behind your new song “Ends of the Earth?”
I started working with producer Ross Copperman and this was a song he sent me to listen to in a Dropbox –  It immediately stopped me in my tracks and I had to record it. I interpreted it as doing anything for the one you love even if it means going to the ends of the earth. I soon figured out that they wrote about a couple who they were friends with that was adopting a baby from Uganda. That just told me the power of music and how it can be interpreted.
2. What has been your favorite venue to play at so far in your music career? 
There have been some incredible venue, but one that sticks out is “the grizzly Rose” in Denver, Co.
3. When you are not working or playing music, what do you like to do in your free time? 
If I have free time, I love working on old cars – I have a 78 f100 pickup that I’m constantly doing something to.
I love sports. And I love hanging with my wife and best friends.
4. Have you learned anything from any musicians or groups that you have opened up for?
Absolutely. I always watch and learn as much I can from them.
Kip Moore taught me to soak in every moment and enjoy the journey.
5. If you could sing a duet with a famous singer or group who would it be and why?
Bryan Adams. The dude is my hero and sings like a madman!
6. How did you get into country music and how did you know you wanted a career in it?
I had always listened to country, rock, pop, and every genre growing up. I had a rock band after high school that made waves across the country, but in that genre it was difficult to have a loyal fan base.
In country, they would literally follow you to the “ends of the earth” haha! The support is unbelievable. 
I also feel the storytelling and putting myself in all my songs is what I wanna do.
7. Is there anything new coming up with your music for the rest of 2017?
Yes – we are in the studio recording new music and should have another new release before the end of the year.
8. What is one of your favorite quotes?
I always loved Gandi’s “you cannot shake hands with a clenched fist”

Brandon Ray~ Artist Spotlight!!!


Brandon Ray is from West Texas and he knows a few things about the American Way. When Ray was a child his parents inspired the idea to follow his dreams while highlighting the importance of hard work. Growing up Ray used to secure himself in his bedroom for many hours and arise with a bad excuse for a song and get on his parents nerves with it. His parents did nothing but inspire him to keep going on.

Music was always present in his childhood home. Ray’s father had a love for legendary rockers like Stevie Ray Vaughan and Steely Dan. His brothers introduced him to Metallica, Mellencamp and Nirvana. Ray’s mother was a fan of country music and she would play all the country greats like Johnny Cash and George Strait. Despite always having a house filled with music, Ray’s first love was baseball and he dreamed to be a pitcher for the Texas Rangers, but he was benched after two foot surgeries that eventually shifted his focus to playing the guitar and writing songs.

By the time he was 13, Ray had saved some money to buy his first guitar. Everything from that point on has been a means to an end in effort to accomplish his own American Dream. He’s held every job imaginable, lawn care, waiter, guitar teacher and lifeguard. When he was being a lifeguard he once resuscitated a boy who nearly drowned at the local city pool. Ray still gets Christmas cards from the boy’s family. At the age of 18 he was on the road with his first band and they played 750 shows, in 3 years. Also at this time he opened up for Fall Out Boy, Switchfoot and was part of Vans Warped Tour.

When Ray arrived in Nashville, Ray landed a publishing deal and played guitar for country musician Brett Eldredge and lent his vocals to many demos for different publishers and songwriters and all while trying to develop his own sound.

In just a few short years, Ray was able to put his out his own music and be apart of this crazy exciting country music world.
