{New Braunfels} Kayla Ray: Love & Liquor

Kayla Ray - Love & LiquorKayla 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. This pedigree shines through not only in Kayla’s music, but in her personality and attitude. I have to say, and this isn’t at all a stretch, Kayla embodies everything that was and should still be country music. Kayla is a sweet spirit with a love of music and the songwriting and performing ability to let the good times and the tough times of her upbringing shine through.

I’ve had Kayla Ray’s record Love & Liquor in my hands for several months now. I’ve listened to it many times, in fact I keep coming back to it every few weeks. Kayla is relatively young, but she has already made a go as a solo performer and released a 5 song EP of all original songs Girl in the Band in 2011. Kayla launched a Kickstarter campaign in the summer of 2013 to raise money to record her first full-length album. A “Kickstarter Launch” party with Jason Eady (emceed by Rawhide & Velvet’s Rita Ballou) gave her a strong start, and by December 2013 she was tour managing for Jason Eady and hitting The Zone in Dripping Springs to record her album! Jason produced Kayla’s record and provided some lead and harmony vocals. This was actually Jason’s first time acting as producer, which is amazing as you listen to track after track of country brilliance.

    Hey would you mind sharing which blog platform you’re working
    with? I’m planning to start my own blog in the near future but I’m having a tough time choosing between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal.
    The reason I ask is because your design seems
    different then most blogs and I’m looking for something completely unique.

    P.S Sorry for getting off-topic but I had to ask!
