Michael Ray ended 2018 by getting engaged to the love of his life Carly Pearce. But 2019 brought some sad news for the “Think a Little Less” singer, the death of his grandmother.

“I miss you so much already!! “If I could only fly” granny I would have been up there this morning just to see the look on papas face, Michael said in the post. “I don’t know what to say except thank you for all you did for all of us. Im so glad God gave me you as a grandmother you were the definition of strong, independent, hard working god fearing, family woman.”

Michael goes on to say, “I’m so glad Carly got to meet you she reminds me a lot of you in someways. Pls watch over us it’s not easy letting you go but I know because you raised us and taught us about God and Heaven that you’re without pain and with papa AMOS.”

As he posted the heartwarming words on social media, Michael also shared a video of himself performing Merle Haggard’s “If I Could Only Fly” in tribute to his grandmother.

“This old @merlehaggardofficial song came to my mind this morning when I got the call, you were always in the crowd for me so I felt the need to play it for you.
I love you Granny. Love, Ray,” he wrote.

“If I could only fly, if I could only fly / I’d bid this place goodbye to come and be with you / But I can hardly stand and I got no where to run / Another sinking sun and one more lonely night,” he sings in the video.

Michael had a special bond with his grandparents. His current album, Amos, released in June, was named after his grandfather Amos Roach, who passed away in 2015— two months before Michael debuted on the Grand Ole Opry.

Our condolences go out to Michael Ray and family at this difficult time.
