Born and bred in Atlanta Georgia, Ray Strickland is a singer-songwriter, guitar slinger and family man. 3 cords and the truth! Songs that are stirring and soulful,sung from the heart .The songs evoke back porch banter and gritty home grown realities. They possess drive and determination and the ferocity of the most lethal rockers. The Stones wailing about dead flowers and Honky Tonk woman, Steve Earl Going to guitar town, Tom Petty Running down a Dream. Elvis,the Byrds and the Burrito Brothers hoisting themselves on the Grand Old Opry stage and shit kicking there way to acceptance despite the reluctance of Nashville's old guard. Thats the family tradition.
Lots of years in a van or a bus, shows from Atlanta to LA all points here and there. Ray has shared the stage with, the Band Perry, Travis Tritt, Drivin n Cryin, Bobby Bare jr, Billy Bob Thornton, Blackberry Smoke, Rodney Atkins, Dash Rip Rock, The Marshall Tucker Band and the Georgia Satellites to name a few.
