With four No. 1 singles to his credit, singer/songwriter Michael Ray is well on his way to another hit with “Spirits and Demons (with Meghan Patrick).” Today he released the song’s intoxicating music video with a CMT multi-platform premiere, including the Paramount Times Square video billboard. Watch the video HERE.

“Growing up, I’d rush home from school, and the first thing I’d do is turn on CMT for the rest of the afternoon,” said Ray. “Watching those music videos helped develop my love for country music and was responsible for introducing me to some of my favorite artists. Whether it’s your first video or 10th, it never gets old seeing it come to life, let alone getting to watch it on a billboard in Times Square.”

Directed by Sean Hagwell, the video captures the song’s mood with a smokey set and Ray alone, surrounded by empty broken glasses. The darkness is further enhanced with Meghan Patrick seen separately in a bar with people going about their lives in the background. When the two are filmed performing singing the song, they never face each other.

“There’s great contrast in the video between my individual shots and Meghan’s shots,” described Ray. “It shows how people handle the end of a relationship differently, but the result is the same: we can’t drink away our heartbreak.”

Of the new single, Music Row Magazine said, “This oomphy-sounding duet sez that booze doesn’t really cure a heartbreak. Both partners sing with gusto.”

In addition to the new song and video, Ray wraps a busy year of touring as he heads back into the studio with multi-platinum CMA Album of the Year producer Michael Knox to finish the Dive Bars & Broken Hearts project.
