NASHVILLE, TENN. (April 17, 2024) ­– This seasoned award-winning country-rock collective, Union Gray, is set to release their debut album “Rocky Mountain Raised” on May 2. With country sounds, an element of rock n’ roll, and thoughtful lyrics that speak to the soul “Rocky Mountain Raised” relates tales from frontman Scott Gray’s past and present. The relatable and deeply personal album guides listeners through life passages: memories made, self-discovery, falling in love and journeying through life.  

The title track “Rocky Mountain Raised” pays homage to the ever-present Rocky Mountains, expressing the impact that growing up there had on Gray’s life. Description of a simpler life, an old dirt road and sunsets give a postcard vision of the glory days savored in nature. When thinking about the Rockies, Gray gives the mountains credit for helping find himself in every way.
