Born and bred in the one red light town of Harlem, Georgia, Ray Fulcher could almost smell the azaleas that reside twenty minutes away in the Augusta National Golf Club, home of the Master’s. While growing up in small town east Georgia, Ray learned the values of the simple life, what it means to earn a buck, and how a country song means more than honky tonkin’ and sad songs, it’s about a way of life. Growing up on the likes of Travis Tritt, Alan Jackson, Keith Whitley, George Strait & Johnny Cash, those artists would mold not only the music he listened to, but also what kind of life he led. Throughout his tenure at the University of Georgia, while earning his two degrees, he spent his nights scraping money together to frequent the Georgia Theater. There he was inspired by artists such as Luke Bryan, Corey Smith, Eric Church, and The Zac Brown Band. Their early years gave Ray the desire to pick up the guitar and begin writing songs about his small town upbringing, dirt road memories, football games, and pretty girls lettin’ their hair down. In May of 2014, Ray took the next step and made the big move to The Music City and has spent the last several years playing live music all over the southeast, sharing the stage with artists such as David Nail, Dustin Lynch, Lee Brice, The Marshall Tucker Band, Craig Morgan, Montgomery Gentry, Maddie and Tae, Kid Rock, Luke Combs, Old Dominion, and Cole Swindell. Since moving to Nashville, Ray has also inked a publishing deal with River House Artists/Warner Chappell Nashville and when he's not on the road, he spends his days either writing or in the studio. You can find his latest songwriting work on Luke Comb's debut album 'This One's For You', where Ray is a co-writer on 8 of the tracks and also co-wrote Luke's latest #1 single, "When It Rains It Pours" Ray's current EP 'Here We Go Again' landed in the top 10 on the Country iTunes chart in September 2016 and Ray is busy out on the road every weekend for shows. Ray & the band look forward to seeing you at a show soon!
