Michael Ray Opens Up About the “One That Got Away”

Ray says his new single gives him that feel of one of the songs you can crank up before you head to the show.

After listening to Michael Ray‘s new single “One That Got Away,” we’ve come to the conclusion that the country crooner has no summertime blues this season!

The upbeat tune tied for most-added at country radio upon impact and in just two weeks has earned support approaching 40 stations. An immediate fan favorite from his sophomore album Amosavailable now, “One That Got Away” was penned by Nashville hit-makers Josh Osborne, Matthew Ramsey, Trevor Rosen and Jesse Frasure.

“Sometimes you get in that moment and you’re like, ‘This person might be out of my league a little bit, but for whatever reason they’re into me, so I’m just gonna roll with it. It might backfire and they might break my heart, but it’s gonna be one hell of a story in the end,’” Ray said.  “One of the things that I like to do when I listen to music in the summertime is to take the roof off my Jeep and just cruise somewhere, and this song just gave me that feel of one of the songs you can crank up before you head to the show. It puts you in that mood to create the rest of the night.”

With its singalong chorus, “One That Got Away” has quickly become a staple in his sets. Ray performed the song last month on Good Morning America and continues to bring it to fair and festival crowds across the nation.

The track is one of 11 featured on Amos, which debuted in the Top 3 on the Billboard Country Albums Chart upon release and boasts nearly 60,000 album equivalents to date.
