Five (5) fans will also receive a Bronze Ticket bonus that will reward them with an exclusive MusicFX Michael Ray merch pack.
Speaking ahead of the reveal, Michael Ray said: “It’s been such a pleasure working with MusicFX to create artwork that I’m proud of for this NFT. ‘Whiskey And Rain’ hitting number one was a group effort, not only within my team, but the fans played such a large part, so this is for them. We wanted to make this opportunity extra special, so we created the Golden Ticket bonus. I can’t wait to meet the winner!”

About Michael Ray
For Michael Ray, music is his grandfather singing and sweating on a rural Florida stage. It’s the childhood refuge he found during the pain of his parent’s divorce. It’s family and stories, history and hope. Ray says music saved him, but it did even more: Music made him.
In five short years, Ray has built an impressive foundation: four No. 1 songs – RIAA Platinum-certified “Think a Little Less,” RIAA Gold-certified “Kiss You in the Morning,” RIAA Gold-certified “One That Got Away” and RIAA Gold-certified “Whiskey And Rain” – plus “Get to You” and “Her World or Mine,” brings his tally to five Gold-certified singles.
Ray has garnered over 1 billion global streams, over 650,000 album equivalents, over 100 million YouTube views, and has performed at the Grand Ole Opry over 60 times. Now, two hit albums into that all-too-rare blend of critically acclaimed and commercially successful career, Ray has released Higher Education, a seven-song collection produced by GRAMMY-nominated producer Ross Copperman.
Proof that heartbroken wallowing can feel good if it swings, “Whiskey And Rain” marked his first multi-week No. 1, cementing Ray as the ideal bridge between vintage country cool and modern country’s best sounds.
