Chad Michael Murray helps bring a difficult part of Michael Ray’s childhood to life in the emotional new video for “Her World or Mine.”
The “One Tree Hill” star plays the father in a troubled relationship – the kind Ray is familiar with.
“I wanted to tell the story of my parents’ divorce and that part of my life – the confusion and the fact that it wasn’t easy for a while,” Ray said. “And losing my grandparents was a massive hit, not only to me, but my whole family.”
Those two concepts come together at the end of the video for a song that was first released as part of Ray’s sophomore label release - 2018’s Amos.
“There were parts of this video that I couldn’t watch while we were shooting because it’s so spot on and because the hurt is still there,” Ray said. “But I believe music is medicine and I believe it helps us heal. I hope you find a little piece of your truth in this one.”
In real life currently, things are going just fine for Ray. He married fellow country singer Carly Pearce last week.
