Country singer comes back to his roots

Frank Ray performs at Picacho Middle School


Country music rising star Frank Ray was in Las Cruces Wednesday, Aug. 17 to play some music at Picacho Middle School and bring awareness to the need for school supplies, which he and his crew brought to the school as well.

Ray was born in Columbus, went to school in Deming and served for 10 years as a police officer in Las Cruces. Coming back to an excited, noisy, middle school crowd, his performance included a teacher at the school he used to jam with and a brave young student singing “Mary Had a Little Lamb” with him.

Along with other things Ray performed his hit “Country’d Look Good On You” and a selection of songs from his newest album, “Gotcha Some.”

Ray will be performing tomorrow, Friday, Aug. 19, at Western New Mexico University's Back Together Bash event.  Visit https://wnmu.edu/events/back-together-bash-2022/ for tickets to that event.
