BESTOP® PRESENTS CUSTOM JEEP WRANGLER FOR COUNTRY CHART-TOPPER MICHAEL RAY
“One That Got Away” Singer Takes Delivery of Custom Bestop® Wrangler
Louisville, CO (August 22, 2019) – Founded in 1954, Bestop®, the industry’s leading manufacturer of premium Jeep® soft tops and accessories, has designed a brand-new custom Jeep for Platinum-selling entertainer Michael Ray. Having recently climbed to the top of the country radio charts for a third time with his latest single “One That Got Away,” Michael Ray is one of country music’s hottest stars. Known for his passion exploring the Nashville backcountry when he isn’t performing across North America, the UK or Australia, Ray celebrated the success of his latest No. 1 by partnering with Bestop® Premium Accessories Group (BPAG) and Nashville’s Music City 4×4 to create a new, one-of-a-kind soft top rig to enjoy this summer.
“I love driving my Jeep – there’s a freedom and creative fueling that happens between the fresh air and the music blaring,” shares Ray. “When Bestop® came to me about partnering together, I immediately pictured the first time I played our demo version of ‘One That Got Away’ and that feeling of excitement, knowing what was potentially on the horizon. Bestop® Premium Accessories Group completely reconfigured my JK into a new rig. Not only did they install the Bestop Trektop Pro soft top and all-new Core Doors they also outfitted it with a custom lighting system from Baja Designs and custom embroidered seat covers from PRP. It’s been a gamechanger for me as now I can’t wait to get home to cruise around, listening to what my next album entails as we’re writing and recording it and hearing how it sounds on the open road!”
It was no accident that Ray partnered with Bestop®. As a longtime Jeep owner and enthusiast, the hitmaker knew about the Bestop® brand and its commitment to quality. With a passion for innovation and an always new, evolving product suite aimed at delivering the very best, BPAG was pleased to work with Michael Ray alongside Nashville’s celebrated Music City 4×4.
“Working with Bestop was my first choice,” adds Ray. “They’re the only ones who can provide a soft top that not only looks awesome but protects me from the elements even better than a hard top I’ve found. It’s the best of both worlds.”
BPAG also found it important to increase overall visibility. To improve Michael Ray’s vision exploring the backcountry, premium Baja Designs LP6 lights and a rock light kit were also added.
PRP finished the Jeep off with beautiful custom JK seat covers that feature embroidered Michael Ray logos.
“We’re proud to be working with singer Michael Ray on his new custom Bestop® Wrangler,” says Bestop® CEO John Larson. “Michael is a true Jeep enthusiast and that’s what we get excited about here at Bestop®. Together, the Bestop® Premium Accessories Group is committed to providing the very best in Jeep and truck accessories used on and off-road. We couldn’t be more pleased with how Michael Ray’s Bestop® Wrangler turned out.”
