As a performer, sought-after singer-songwriter and executive at the successful Nashville based record label and publishing company, Better Angels Music, Gary Ray is a music biz triple-threat. He is no stranger to the Atlanta scene, and is playing Peachtree Tavern, JUly 13th. He joined us for our 5GB series before the show.
What’s the first gig you ever attended?
The first gig I ever went to was Eric Clapton at the Omni when I was a kid. I think the first local gig that I ever went to was seeing Shawn Mullins play at a local coffee shop.
What is the best gig that you ever played/performed?
I’ve been blessed to play so many great shows and it’s hard to say what the absolute best one has been. I love festivals and I think my favorite Atlanta festival moment was playing music midtown before Ben Harper.
What is the best gig you have ever seen?
I got to go to the Grammy’s this year and that was a pretty huge night of music for me. I got to seen Springsteen, McCartney, Adele, and so many other acts that were on my bucket list of artists to see live.
What is the gig you would most like to play?
I’d love to play the Stagecoach festival in California. I have heard it’s mammoth!
What would be the lineup for your dream gig?
How about: Eric Church, Jason Aldean, The Pistol Annies, and me….
