Nashville & New Music!

Hey Y’all!

I’m excited to share with y’all that I am working on new music for a new CD! I just spent the last week in Nashville co-writing with many fabulous songwriters building up song choices for a new album. I want to say a big thank you to Patricia Conroy, Brian Donkers, Benita Hill, Brian White, Jane Bach and RyLee Madison for lending your time and creativity! And of course thanks to Doug Romanow, who I am working with as a writer and a producer for this project.

While in Nashville I also got to work with Jake Harsh to get some new photos done. Jake is an Amazing photographer and I can’t wait to show you the results!

I wish I could tell you more but I don’t want to give too much away :) I can say that this CD will be bigger and better then the last and it will definitely showcase who I am as an artist.


I will keep you updated along this journey of new music and you can stay up to date by following me on Facebook ( and Twitter (@NRayy).

Exploring Asia

Hey Y’all,

If you have been following me on Facebook you have read every detail of my trip to Asia as it was unfolding. I wanted share a blog about the trip, but I figured I wouldn’t bore you with every detail all over again :) My mom has a blog of her own and she asked me to write something for hers so I thought I would share with you what I wrote.

It’s been an exciting week right from the start! Flying 14 hours isn’t so bad when you are doing so first class.

As soon as we arrived we began walking, more than I have in a while, to see as many sights as possible while we are here. From temples to museums, outdoor markets to shopping malls we have definitely packed a lot in.


I’m not sure what exactly I expected it to be like when I visited Shanghai, but the city is definitely filling in the gaps in my imagination. On one street you have huge skyscrapers and six floor shopping malls with designers from Gucci to Tiffany. On another there are old houses being torn down and markets out on the street from antiques to seafood.


There is so much more activity in the streets here, and I thought Toronto had a lot. On any given night you can go for a walk and see people outside learning to dance or jumping rope! The sense of community and friendship on the streets makes Billy and I wish we knew the language better so we could join in!


Although, the language barrier hasn’t slowed Billy down from joining in the jump rope games to trying food sold on the side of the road, he has immersed himself in the culture. As my eating habits are not quite as adventurous, I have been a little more cautious. Though many people would be happy to know I have been trying some ‘different’ foods while I’m here.


Although Shanghai has started to feel like home after a week of visiting, we are clearly still outsiders. Not sure if it’s my purple hair or cowboy boots, but I certainly do get a lot of stares while I am out exploring the city. I’m hoping that I start to blend in soon because according to Billy he is ready to pack up and move here!


For now our trip is nearing the end and we will have to return back to Canada, with lots of souvenirs in hand. But Shanghai you can bet we will be back!! IMG_20141031_183406

The Wild Tires Tour is wrapping up and incase you didn’t follow us along on Facebook, Twitter, on the radio or at the shows I thought I’d tell you about our adventures!

It all started in Moose Jaw where we visited Brandon at Country 100! It was a pleasure to go on air with him and so bittersweet to reminisce our favourite Robin Williams movies after the tragic news of his passing. Billy even ended the interview with a little tribute to Robin Williams as the genie in Aladdin!

From Moose Jaw it was off to Regina for the afternoon where we met up with Patrick from 620 CKRM! Thanks again Patrick for choosing my new single Country Wild as the Farm Fresh Song of the day! :)

Billy and I headed back to Moose Jaw for the evening where we performed at 23 Main Street Cafe. A warm and modern coffee shop it was the perfect setting for an evening acoustic show! Thanks to everyone who came out to see us.

After a brief stop to admire Lake Reed Billy and I got settled in Medicine Hat.
The following afternoon we headed to CHAT 94.5 to play a few songs for the lovely staff! We had such a blast meeting with Steve and the entire staff including the cutest little puppy!


On the evening of August 15th Billy J White and I geared up for a show at Oly’s Alehouse in Medicine Hat. The crowd was so welcoming and we made sure to promise we would come back and see them on our next tour!

From there we drove through the night headed to Kamloops. We arrived earlier then we expected and didn’t have a hotel booked till the next day. All the rooms in every hotel were booked for the night except for the King Suite in the Sandman Signature hotel. We enjoyed luxury for the night in our suite complete with a dishwasher!

With a day off to relax we decided to hit the mountains for a hike! We climbed a black diamond trail in Perterson Creek Park. Let me just say it was a lot easier going up then coming down! I made it out alive :D

After a well earned night’s sleep Billy and I visited Howie at Country 103. Thanks again to Howie for having us and letting us play “Okay With Alright” live on air!


From Kamloops Billy J and I made our way to Vancouver! Unfortunately a few of the shows and meetings we had planned in Vancouver were cancelled. But we took advantage of our days off to enjoy the city! From a gourmet meal at Earl’s restaurant to a trip to the aquarium to a walk around the SeaWall and Stanley Park we definitely enjoyed the beauty of BC!

After a wonderful week in BC Billy and I said goodbye and headed back into Alberta. Our first stop was Sun Country Radio. We were up bright and early to help Steph host the morning show. Not sure any of us were awake :P but we had a blast chatting and playing a few songs on air!

That afternoon we also made a stop at 96.5 CKFM in Olds Alberta to see Jeff. Billy and I each got to do a short interview and play him one of our tunes. Thanks again Jeff for having us in!

On Wednesday August 27th Billy and I set up for an afternoon show in Red Deer at City Roast Cafe. What appeared to be a small coffee and sandwich shop was flooded with people during the lunch hour! It was a lot of fun to play for such a great crowd and to enjoy some of the delicious food ourselves :)

Before the day was over we had the pleasure of stopping in for a quick visit with Abbey White at CKGY Red Deer.

The following day we got to enjoy another afternoon show at the BayView Cafe in Sylvan Lake! Thanks again for having us all afternoon and to everyone who bought CDs!

After our show we took a trip to the Royal Tyrrell Museum, the biggest Dinosaur museum and learning centre. WOW! It was AMAZING! I definitely recommend you check it out if you love dinosaurs as much as Billy does :) or even if you don’t!


Friday we were off to Airdrie for a show at Krave Steakhouse. The crowd was filled with friendly faces. We were happy to play all night long and make new friends and fans. Thanks again for having us, we will definitely be back for a visit next time we are in town!

We are now settled in Edmonton and very much looking forward to CCMA Week! We have one more radio visit tomorrow at The One in Leduc, so tune in!
And be sure to come out to the Silver Bullet Showcase this Thursday evening at the Sherlock Holmes Pub.

Wild Tires Tour!

The Wild Tires Tour has OFFICIALLY BEGUN! Billy J White and I have started our journey across Western Canada!

We kicked off the tour with a show in my hometown at Fionn MacCool’s Oakville on Friday, August 8th. Then we packed the car full and headed to Manitoulin Island where we played the beer tent at Manitoulin Country Fest on Saturday from midnight will 1 a.m. There was no time for rest, so we hoped back in the car and started our trek to Moose Jaw. The time we hit Michigan we were barely awake and decided we needed to stop for a nap. Unfortunately for us we had to drive through 4 different towns before we finally found a free room! After a few hours sleep it was back on the road to travel 17 more hours to Moose Jaw! After a few brief stops and a sighting of the set of Corner Gas we arrived at our destination!

We hit Country 100FM tomorrow morning, so tune in at 8am, then catch us rocking out at the Main St. Cafe at 7pm.

Be sure to check my Facebook, Twitter and Instagram for all the updates. You can also keep an eye on my SHOWS tab for all the show dates & times or you can check them out on Billy’s website

We will be sure to keep you updated along the way!! Use the hashtag #WildTiresTour to join in the conversation.

The Wild Tires Tour is sponsored by Bomb Energy Drink.
