Michael Ray Speaks Out Following His Arrest

Michael Ray didn't necessarily have the holiday he hoped to have, but the support from his fans at least makes a difficult situation more bearable. The singer, who was arrested on Dec. 20 for DUI and drug possession, first issued a statement saying he was "so very sorry for the disappointment" his actions caused.

After reading kind words fans left on the social media platform, Kudoboard, Ray spoke out again, praising his fans for sticking with him through the trials of the past few weeks.

"WOW! This got me emotional while reading everyone of these notes from you all," shares Ray. "I can't thank you enough for the sweet words and this journey we are on together! I LOVE every single one of you! Thanks for an amazing 17 cant wait for next year!"

Ray also took to social media to ask for prayers for his father, who is having open heart surgery today (Dec. 28).

"Dad, since Day 1 you have had my 6 and I'll always have yours... please send good vibes and prayers to my pops has he goes into open heart surgery this morning. Love you all!"


Ray is working on a new album, which includes his current single, "Get to You." The singer hopes to release the record, the follow-up to his self-titled freshman debut, in 2018.
