6 Artists To Watch in 2020 Spotlight: Ray Fulcher

By Aaron Wagner

You may not know who he is, but you most certainly know his songs.

Enter Ray Fulcher.

Born and raised in Georgia, Fulcher originally had plans to become a teacher before music pulled at his heart as well as being inspired by Eric Church. So about 5 years ago he moved to town to try the whole music career thing and you could say things have been working out.

He became friends with a guy named Luke who happened to move to Nashville around the same time. That friend named Luke turned into Luke Combs.

Fulcher has written top hits like “When It Rains It Pours” and “Even Though I’m Leaving” and has 15 album cuts with Luke Combs alone. But let’s be frank. If you’re able to get 15 album cuts from Luke Combs that means you’re a damn good songwriter and can probably start keeping some of those songs for yourself.

In 2019, Fulcher released his latest EP Somebody Like Me which has six songs that are all worthy of being played on radio. As good of a lyric that Fulcher can write he can absolutely sing the heck out of a song. Songs like “Anything Like You Dance” and “Dirt On It” would be awesome on radio and then there’s a song like “Jesus and Jeopardy” that will hit you right in the feels.

Fulcher is the real deal. With great songwriting credits to his name I can’t wait to see his solo career kickoff and I’m willing to bet he’s going to be a household name before you know it.
