Michael Ray sat down with The Taste of Country and gave them the inside scoop on his recent acting endeavors… looks like we should be seeing him very soon on an episode of CMT’s Nashville!
Michael Ray will be playing himself in a future episode of show that will be released this season, appearing in a scene with Avery (Jonathan Jackson). “I’ve always wanted to get into acting. Whether it be in church or high school or doing plays,” he says. Though he’s done little acting work, Ray does have a speaking part in the episode, and while he can’t give away any of the details, he says it’s a type of situation he knows “very, very well.”
“It was so much fun to kind of step out of my norm for a minute,” Ray states, saying the cast was easy to work with and “so good at what they do.”
“It’s unbelievable talent and when you’re working with people of that caliber, they just have a great way of reaching out to a guy like me that hasn’t done that in that realm and just making me feel like I was a part of the cast. They were awesome, I’m excited for it to come out.”
According to The Taste of Coutnry, while Michael was on the set of Nashville, heactually had the chance to meet young singer and actor Jaden Smith, the son of acclaimed actor Will Smith, who the country star was a big fan of growing up. Smith’s girlfriend is also appearing on an episode of the show and was shooting on set the same day. “He was actually a very cool dude, he was very nice and honestly a really cool guy,” Ray says of Smith
