Ray’s most recent critically acclaimed, Grammy award winning album God Willin’ & the Creek Don’t Rise debuted at #3 on the Billboard Top 200 and #1 on the Digital Album chart.

God Willin’ & the Creek Don’t Rise garnered 3 Grammy Award nominations including the coveted Song of The Year category for “Beg Steal or Borrow” and won the Grammy for Best Contemporary Folk Album.

 

LaMontagne released his new single, “Supernova” in February 2014, the first single off his 5th studio album of the same name, due out this spring via RCA Records. The album was produced by Dan Auerbach (The Black Keys) and recorded in Nashville, TN.
