Warner Music NashvilleCountry newcomer Michael Ray‘s debut hit, “Kiss You in the Morning,” leaves a lot to the imagination between the last two lines of the chorus — “I wanna kiss you with the neon light in your eyes glowing/Then I wanna kiss you in the morning.” While it’s obvious where this romantic night is leading, Michael thinks there’s at least one stop before the couple in the song heads home.
