MICHAEL RAY TAPPED AS NEW BRAND AMBASSADOR FOR GIVN® WATER
Country Star’s Lead Single “Get To You” Off Forthcoming Sophomore Album Tallies Over Eight Million On-Demand Streams Before Breaking Top 30
Ray’s charity initiative Wrigley Cares has provided more than 100K meals to shelter animals along his Get To You Tour
NASHVILLE, Tenn. – This Giving Tuesday, country music’s Michael Ray
announces he has partnered with GIVN® Water as a brand ambassador. Ray
has already mobilized his fans to donate over 100K meals to shelter
animals on stops along his Get To You Tour through his own Wrigley Cares
program, and will continue his mission to give back as he prepares to
release his sophomore album through a collaboration with GIVN to help
provide clean water to communities around the globe.
“When I learned that GIVN provides a day of clean water to those in need
for every bottle they sell, I immediately felt that significance and
the ripple effect it could have not just in the U.S. but also on a
global scale,” shares Ray. “Growing up in a small rural town in Florida,
I learned at an early age that showing people you care is the greatest
way to strengthen a community. Whether it was something as small as
taking a neighbor a meal, my grandfather not only told me but he showed me the importance of being there for one another. I think we all need that right now. No gesture is too small.”
Recognized as a 2016 Best for the World Honoree, GIVN® Water provides
one day of clean drinking water from each bottle sold, having provided
over 850,000 days of clean water thus far. As a brand ambassador, the
man the Tampa Bay Times calls a “passionate, inked-up country
rocker” will support GIVN® Water and their inspirational work via social
media and at his live shows.

ABOUT MICHAEL RAY:
March 2017 brought Michael Ray his second No.1 single with “Think A
Little Less” off his debut self-titled album. This followed his first
No. 1 single, “Kiss You In The Morning” which went to the top spot in
just 24 weeks. Ray continues to grow his following, having toured with
Sam Hunt, Kip Moore, Brantley Gilbert and Darius Rucker and wrapped up
his own first 40-city headlining tour last year.
Michael was raised in Eustis, Florida an hour from Orlando. The child of
a family full of musicians, he began his professional career before he
was a teenager, graduated to the bar scene as soon as he could drive and
hasn’t let up on the pedal since. When he decided it was time to move
to Nashville, the work Ray had put in began to pay off quickly as he
landed a publishing contract with Warner/Chappell Music and a record
deal with Atlantic Records /Warner Music Nashville.
In between touring, Michael has been recording his new album expected
for release in early 2018 with its first single, “Get To You,” at
Country radio now.
