Ian Munsick’s “Long Haul” of 9 Years Pays Off With a Song On the Radio

Ian Munsick’s “Long Haul” of 9 Years Pays Off With a Song On the Radio

Ian Munsick recently had a moment that everyone who dreams about making music for a living hopes and waits for…the first time they hear their music on the radio.

Ian was in his car when he captured on video the first time he heard “Long Haul” on a country station.

Ian shared, “9 years ago, an 18 year old Ian moved from Wyoming to Nashville. A few days in, I missed the wide open spaces and friendly faces so much that I moved back to the ranch that raised me. My family supported my decision but never let me stop asking the question ‘what if?’ A few months later, that question haunted me into moving back to Music City. Fast forward 9 years… the question stopped haunting me. The Dream became a reality. If mine can, so can yours. Chase it.”

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.”
