Lonny Ray, an American Country Music Songwriter, was born in a northern suburb of Detroit Michigan. He learned to over come adversity at a very young age. He was raised on the streets of the Big Three towns in which he ran. His songs are an array of adversities and experiences that influence him today.“ Whether it's writing songs, singin' 'em, or playing for an audience, Lonny Ray is a born entertainer...and a damn fine one at that!"
