So what school did Michael Ray go to in Eustis, Florida? “Man, I actually was already, like, playing bars and trying to go more music. And frankly, I just wasn’t that good in school. So I went to I actually went to a place called ‘Blue Lake Academy’ that doesn’t exist anymore.” And the hospital that he was born in is also gone. “I was taking my buddy Dave a videographer around showing him some places. I realized that one, the hospital I was born at is not there anymore and my high school is gone.”
