Thanks for checking out the 196th episode of the show! If you like country music, and I mean REAL country music, then you will fall in love with our guest this week! She is a young singer/songwriter from Waco, TX who is not afraid of using the steel guitar, the fiddle and that country wail in her vocals. Listening to her music can take you back and make you think you’re listening to the female Hank Williams Sr! She got her start as the tour manager for Texas legend Jason Eady and later started performing with him and his band. In 2014 she released her first full length album titled “Love & Liquor” and in 2015 was named “Best New Female Vocalist of the Year” by The Texas Regional Radio Music Awards. She is undoubtedly a breath of fresh air for traditional country fans. Let me introduce everyone to Miss Kayla Ray for the first time on The ETX ROCKS Show!!

Kayla Ray is a young Texas Native who delivers country music with rawness and honesty.  Her music is polished by her feminine sass and bright smile. While she was raised solely by worldly experience and heartache, Kayla has had the incredible ability to overcome any circumstance. The fire this ability has built inside of her rings loud and clear in her genuine delivery of pure country music. She has surrounded herself with music from our past; growing up she poured over the work of country music giants such as: Patsy Cline, Loretta Lynn, Tammy Wynette, Tanya Tucker, Merle Haggard, George Jones, and Willie Nelson. Although the influence of these artists is prominent in her strong delivery and original lyrics, she has developed a truly unique and captivating style that is all her own. She is very proud and “blessed” as she puts it, to have had the opportunities that she has had thus far in her music career.
