Michael Ray Recalls His First Concert Ever As He Gets Ready For His First Show of 2021

Michael Ray Recalls His First Concert Ever As He Gets Ready For His First Show of 2021

Michael Ray is headed home to play a concert this weekend!

It feels like forever since that announcement could be made, but the news is real! Michael shared, “I’m so damn excited. I’m coming home, this Sunday Feb, 28th the bandshell in Eustis Fla. FREE SHOW. Let’s go!”

As he gets ready to jump back on stage, Michael recalls the first time he went to see a concert as a fan, “First artist I ever saw in concert was Garth Brooks. I was 12, at the TD Waterhouse in Orlando, Florida…and that changed the whole game.”

Perhaps Sunday will be a game changer for one of Michael’s fans.

One thing is for certain, they’ll get to hear this one — it’s his latest single!

Dustin Lynch & MacKenzie Porter talk about “Thinking ‘Bout You”

Dustin Lynch & MacKenzie Porter talk about “Thinking ‘Bout You”

Dustin Lynch recalls the exact moment during the writing of “Thinking ‘Bout You” when they thought it could work as a collaboration, “We realized, after we got to the chorus, wait a second, this is the duet moment we’ve been looking for. We can have the girl on the other end of the line, and her come in on the second verse, and now it’s a conversation. And I do think that’s why it’s so approachable and people relate to it and those phone calls can be life changing sometimes.”

As the song is knocking on the door to the number-one spot on the country music airplay chart, MacKenzie Porter shares that she and Dustin haven’t had a lot of opportunities to perform the hit song together, “The crazy part is like, we’ve actually probably sang it separately, more than we’ve sang it together, because our touring schedules are different. So then when we do get to do it together, it’s like oh yeah this is how, this is how it’s supposed to go, I’m not supposed to sing Dustin’s first verse, which I do in my own show. It just feels so natural.”
