Stream the new single from the Ray Johnston Band: "Alabama Crimson Tide"
The Ray Johnston Band has built a solid foundation over the years based on melodies and lyrics that always seem to lean on the positive side of life. This frame of mind is Ray’s best feature, and everyone who knows him will admit that his “glass is half full” attitude has a sobering effect on lives that are often overburdened, overtired and just plain “over it.” Having 5 1⁄2 years in remission from Leukemia will definitely put things into perspective for pretty much anyone, and the new lease on life has never been lost on Ray who utilizes both his charity work and his music to spread the love and shed light in the darkness wherever he finds it.
I wrote this song with Gordy Quist (Band of Heathens) & Django Walker. The song encapsulates loving each other, being intentional, and grasping this time we have on earth. ‘We are all on borrowed time, the only thing guaranteed, we’re born, we die, so why dont we try, to make the best of the in between”. A music video for this song will also be released thats a compilation of soldiers surprising their families coming home from overseas. Powerful stuff!
