God Willin’ & the Creek Don’t Rise debuted at number three on the Billboard Top 200 and number one on the Digital Album chart. This marked a personal sales best for Ray and tied his debut chart position at number three with Gossip in the Grain. The single, “Beg Steal or Borrow” became Ray’s first radio number one on the AAA BDS and Mediabase. The Associated Press called the album “one of the year’s best,” while the New York Daily News’ 5 star review said the album is “one of the stand out releases of the year.”
The band spent the latter portion of last year touring the U.S. with David Gray and Levon Helm. The Commercial Appeal stated Ray, “radiated earthy charm and a powerfully focused voice,” while American Songwriter claimed Ray is “the physical embodiment of the word- classic.”
The “Pariah Dogs” consists of Jay Bellerose (drums), Jennifer Condos (bass), Eric Heywood (guitar) and Greg Leisz (pedal steel guitar). For more information, go to www.raylamontagne.com.
