This morning, ACM nominated New Male Artist Of The Year, Michael Ray stopped by Live with Kelly and Ryan to perform his current chart-climbing single, “One That Got Away.” Before taking the stage to perform his infectious tune, co-hosts Kelly Ripa and Ryan Seacrest came out to introduce the singer to the audience.
Kicking off the month, Ray brought a little bit of summer to this cold winter morning dressing in a Hawaiian style shirt, while giving viewers at home an upbeat and energized performance to remember. As always, he captivated his audience with his undeniable confidence singing his lyrics about a one of a kind girl with his infectious smile never leaving his face. At the end of the song, the studio erupted in cheers, while Ripa and Seacrest came back to the stage cheering.
That wasn’t all for his appearance, Ripa and Seacrest took time after to chat with the singer. Seacrest mentioned how both Ray and his fiancé Carly Pearce, are both nominated for this year’s ACM Awards simultaneously, with Ray responding, “Yea it’s incredible! It’s my first one so it made it that much more special.” While mentioning his fiancé, Ripa couldn’t have him leave without talking about his elaborate proposal to Pearce in Mexico. Ray mentioning, “I went a little far out…I wanted to give her what she deserved…something we both remember forever and she watches the Bachelor so I had a lot to live up to.” Before leaving the stage, the co-hosts congratulated him on all his success, making this a moment to never forget.
