Michael Ray is 4th of July Guinness World Record Holder

Michael Ray is 4th of July Guinness World Record Holder

Michael Ray has a lot of great 4th of July memories from over the years, “We all throw the big fireworks and gather around the lake and drink and grill and have fun.”

But there’s one particular celebration that stands out when he thinks about the American holiday – it was the one where he became a World Record holder.

Michael explains, “I was a part of a Guinness world record with the biggest amount of sparklers lit at once at a show. so technically I have a Guinness World Record hanging up in the apartment from Haines City for their Fourth of July bash that they threw, there were like 997 or 96 sparklers lit at once, and we took it from Japan, so it was cool.”

Michael Ray will be enjoying his Fourth of July this year – and then he’ll be hitting the road as country music is rolling out after a year and half of being stuck at home.

His song “Whiskey and Rain” is climbing the country music chart – check out the music video right here…

Chris Young Earns 3 CMA Award Nominations

Chris Young Earns 3 CMA Award Nominations

Congrats to Chris Young who is a 3-time CMA Award nominee this year.

His song “Famous Friends”, which he sings with Kane Brown, racked up nominations in the categories of Single, Musical Event, and Video of the Year.

Talking about his nominations, Chris says “I was blown away by the fact that there were three award nominations for the song. I mean, there’s so much that’s gone into it and so many people that have fallen in love with it and supported it and, you know, just having a hit with your friend in the first place is great with a song like “Famous Friends” with my buddy Kane Brown, but then to be nominated for three different CMA Awards, including Single of the Year. It’s just incredible.”

Chris, Kane and all the other nominees will learn if they’re taking home trophies, when the 55th Annual CMA Awards are handed out in Nashville on Wednesday November 10 – broadcasted live on ABC.
