Up-and-coming country artist Michael Ray’s third single, “Think a Little Less,” has officially been released to country radio. The song, which follows Ray’s 2015 No. 1 debut single, “Kiss You in the Morning,” and the Top 20 hit "Real Men Love Jesus," goes back to that lip-locking theme.

The sultry track is decidedly right for a grown-up date night, especially its chorus: “Kiss a little more, think a little less / Burnin’ up the night like a cigarette / Get you out of this bar, out of that dress / Kiss a little more, kiss a little more, think a little less.”

"[I’m] so excited to finally share "Think a Little Less" with the world,” Ray says in a release. “This is a song that I have wanted to be a single since the day I cut it. It really speaks to our sound, and I'm glad the day has come for the rest of the world to hear it."

This year will be a big year for Ray: He’s currently touring with Brantley Gilbert and will join Darius Rucker’s summer tour.

“All my guys — we watch every show, we don’t miss a night,” he tells The Boot. “It’s always different. They’ve been where we are, so we try to learn from them now."
