Get Some Old-School Country With Dillon Carmichael’s New Single, “I Do For You”

If you long for the days of hearing Waylon and Hank Jr. on the radio, check out Dillon Carmichael’s new single, “I Do for You.” The Kentucky native, who is the nephew of Eddie and John Michael Montgomery, can croon with the best of ’em.

Penned by Dillon and Jimmy Melton, “I Do For You” features Dillon’s rich baritone backed by pedal steel, fiddle, electric guitar, B3 organ and more. Unlike the 10 tracks on Dillon’s Dave Cobb-produced debut album, Hell On an Angel, “I Do for You” was helmed by Phil O’Donnell at Nashville’s Blackbird Studios in Nashville.

Michael Ray Honors His Grandma Penny with a Tattoo

Michael Ray Honors His Grandma Penny with a Tattoo

When you’re getting a permanent addition to you body, you want to make sure it means something, right?

Michael Ray has several tattoos, but each one has a personal connection to his life, “All my tattoos are either family based, religious based, or music based.”

He shares the story of one of his tattoos that honors his late grandmother, “So, my grandma, Penny, she passed away a couple of years ago, and I have a tattoo memory of my grandfather, and I wanted a tattoo for her. Her nickname was Penny, and I got a penny with my Grandmother’s birth year, 1942, on the date, on the inside of my arm.”

If he could change one thing about the tattoo…it would just be WHEN he got it. Turns out Michael got it on a show day, and it being on his arm, well, Michael admits “I started playing guitar that night…for the show, and it hurt like hell.”

But even with that night of pain Michael proudly says “it’s probably my favorite tattoo.”
