LAKE METIGOSHE — Up and coming Nashville country artist Frank Ray will take the stage at 6:25 pm tonight at Lando Live, a one-day music festival at Lake Metigoshe, north of Bottineau.

With songs like “Country’d Look Good on You,” Ray, has been called “Artists to Watch” by Rolling Stone magazine.

Ray is originally from Las Cruces, New Mexico, where he was a police officer for more than 10 years. He said he decided at a crucial time in his life and with a new baby in 2017, to leave his career and chase his lifetime dream of being a full-time singer.

Ray said he had gained some notoriety in Las Cruces, winning a battle of the band’s competition and being awarded as an opening act for Keith Urban. rMost recently, he opened for Luke Combs, playing for a crowd of 65,000.

“Getcha Some”‘ will be the title of Ray’s first EP to be released in August. Ray said “Getcha Some” was his token phrase throughout his police career and is a fitting tribute to pushing through like he did in the police academy. He said he is a Nashville native now, and “That’s where you gotta be to make it in this industry.”
