{New Braunfels} Kayla Ray: Love & Liquor

Kayla Ray was born and raised in Texas. She was brought up on the music of greats such as Patsy Cline, Loretta Lynn, Tammy Wynette, Tanya Tucker, Merle Haggard, George Jones, and Willie Nelson.

A road sign pointing toward Devil’s Hollow fell on front man Justin Murray’s eyes at just the right time one night when he was headed home after a gig and booking another gig over the phone.
