“Real Men Love Jesus” is going to make country fans love Michael Ray even more YouTube Screenshot

Sure, country music rising star Michael Ray has already shown that he can get some hearts pumping with a simple glance. And others have fallen in love with his debut number one single “Kiss You in the Morning.”

“Having my debut single go No. 1 is something I’ve imagined and worked for my entire life,” Ray explained in a recent press release. “This dream started when I was 9 years old singing in my grandpa’s country band in Eustis, FL. Music connects people like nothing else and I’m blessed I get to go out onstage every night and hopefully make people forget about their worries, at least for a few hours,” says Michael. “I can’t say thank you enough to everyone who has helped me make this happen and to everyone who has supported me and my music to get me to this place. “

But what is sure to place Ray in the hearts of more than just country music fans is his Opry Lounge performance of his song “Real Men Love Jesus” – a cut from his debut album that tells the story of men who don’t just love fast cars and fishing and football, but love Jesus and the chance to share their faith with others.
