2017 was a rough year for Michael Ray.
Months after performing on stage at the Route 91 Harvest Festival before the tragedy, the country star was arrested for a DUI.
For Ray, the arrest was a wake up call.
In an interview with Rolling Stone, Ray revealed that prior to the arrest, he had never been in trouble before.
He admits that he never thought he would be arrested, and at the time, was worried the arrest would ruin everything he’d worked so hard for.
Truthfully, quite the opposite happened. During the low point in his life, Ray took comfort in the love and support of his friends, family, and fan base.
When Ray appeared in court on DUI charges, the charge was reduced to reckless driving.
Now, months later, Ray has released a new album called Amos, and is looking forward to what’s ahead.
