Michael Ray’s “Whiskey And Rain” Goes Number One On Country Charts

Michael Ray’s single “Whiskey And Rain” officially reached number one on the country charts this week, marking his fourth number one song of his career. As Ray took to social media to thank his fans and team, the artist became emotional reflecting on the journey. Check out the tear-jerking response in the video below.

Michael Ray has dethroned Dustin Lynch and MacKenzie Porter’s five-week run at number one on the country charts with their song, “Thinking ‘Bout You.” As Ray’s “Whiskey And Rain” tops the charts, the artist lands his fourth number one song.

The 90s country-inspired song was a clear hit with fans, gradually climbing up the charts since it impacted radio in October of 2020. Written by Jesse Frasure and Josh Thompson, Ray recorded the song early on during the pandemic. He has shared in interviews that the song remains one of his most favorite songs to date.

“Yeah, whiskey and rain coming down, coming down // Splash of bourbon in a glass // Yeah, pouring something on the pain, let it drown, let it drown // Try to wash away the past, oh-oh-oh // Since my blue sky, sunshine, whole life  // Hopped on that midnight train // ‘Til the bottle runs out or the clouds roll away // It’s just whiskey and rain”

It will be interesting to see if Ray’s song, “Whiskey And Rain” continues to hold down the number one spot on the country charts next week. Until then, congrats to Ray and his team on a well-deserved feat!
