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!

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.”
