Ray
Pyne

,
The North Carolina native released his debut CD, My Kind of Music, to an overwhelming enthusiastic reception. Something new and fresh was on the horizon. My Kind of Music became the #1 selling country album on Billboard’s “Heatseeker’s” chart that week and the #1 selling album on CMT’s (Country Music Television) sales chart. The album landed on the “Top 10 Albums of 2005” lists in Billboard, Dallas Morning News and the Miami Herald to name a few. Shooter Jennings has been a vocal fan of Ray’s music. When Warner Bros. Records stalled on releasing Ray’s sophomore album, the artist took matters into his own hands, self-releasing Crazy Like Me in June 2008. Once again, Ray wrote/co-wrote every song on the album. Direct connection to the fans is what catapulted the release of Crazy Like Me. Ray’s spent years on the road playing his brand of outlaw country and the listeners have responded. With limited air play on the first album, My Kind of Music still sold nearly 100,000 units proving that country music fans wanted more of what he had to offer. It's his attitude. He does it his way. He says it his way. His way takes aim at the heart, scoring a direct hit by chronicling the beauty and the tragedy of everyday life. He knows where country music's been and he knows that he's taking it someplace new. His way is the way of the steel guitar. It's recitation and gospel, with a little blues and rock thrown in for seasoning. But when it simmers to a boil and he serves it up in that deep Carolina drawl, you can't call it anything but country music.
