Michael Ray included New York City’s Opry City Stage in one of the many stops he made during his album release week. From the Grand Ole Opry Stage to Good Morning America and even Ellen, one of his final stops was NYC to play for fans at The Studio at Opry City Stage.
After being introduced by NASH Fm 94.7 DJs Katie Neal and Jesse Addy, Ray opened with “Fan Girl” from the new record as well as his debut number one breakout hit “Kiss You in the Morning”. He then told the crowd about his brand new album and explained he would be playing each song for them. Amos which was released this past Friday is an ode to Ray’s grandfather and his conviction when singing each song off the record truly comes to life when hearing the songs live.
“We’re going off of your energy here tonight New York City, we’ve been rolling since 3:45 AM”, he explained, referencing his early call time for Good Morning America. The crowd didn’t disappoint, they were singing along to the songs that were just released as if they had heard them hundreds of times. In between songs on the album Ray also covered Dwight Yoakam’s “Fast As You” as well as David Lee Murphy’s “Dust On The Bottle” after asking if there were any 90’s country fans in the audience tonight.
The intimate room of fans were excited to see such a high energy performance and get to hear each song from Amos live. “Thanks to NASH FM 94.7 this next song is sitting at number 13 on the charts. We just played this song on Ellen a few hours ago, this is the first single off the album, here’s “Get To You”, he said before playing his current radio single. He closed with “Think a Little Less”, another hit from his debut self-titled album. Take a listen to Amos and head to our Instagram for exclusive videos from the show.
