Michael Ray Discovered a Lot of Info About Deana Carter Thanks to Honky Tonk Tuesday

When touring stopped last year, Michael Ray looked for a new creative outlet to help him connect with fans, and also give him something to do…so he started his Honky Tonk Tuesday series.

Fan and fellow artists have loved both watching and appearing on the weekly musical get together. Michael takes his hosting duties seriously, and makes sure to be prepared for the artists that show up.

He admits that while he was a fan and knew her music, his research of Deana Carter turned up some interesting tidbits that he didn’t previously know about her, “As a fan, I learned so much, because I do a lot of research before I have a guest on…so, I learned so much, but Deana Carter blew my mind. Obviously she’s an incredible artist, incredible singer – I didn’t know about her playing Farm-Aid, her growing up with Willie (Nelson), and Kris Kristofferson, and how much Willie Nelson played in her career, and just how talented she is as a songwriter and an artist…and that one I’ll always hold dear to me.”

Ashley McBryde Packs It All For Her Tour

Ashley McBryde Packs It All For Her Tour

Ashley McBryde’s This Town Talks tour gets rolling next month in Lake Charles, Louisiana. Then for the next 7 months she’ll be crisscrossing this nation playing shows from Georgia to Montana and everywhere in between.

So, with all that travel, and different locations, packing for a tour can present some challenges. Ashley shares one basic piece of advice when it comes to preparing for the road, “At first, learning how to pack for on tour…I really didn’t do a good job. I guess maybe I thought I was leaving for summer camp. So, I would spend a couple of weeks where I overpacked, and a couple of weeks where I under packed. Just let me tell you…if you have to choose between the two – overpack. You can put those clothes away when you get back.”
