Inside Michael Ray's Whirlwind 18-Hour Las Vegas Bachelor Party: All the Details

Since tour life can feel like a bachelor party, Michael Ray wasn't planning on one before he marries fellow country star Carly Pearce this fall. But when a friend with a private plane noticed the singer had a day off between shows, they said, "Why not?" and rounded up the musician's family, band and crew for a whirlwind weekend

The morning of Friday the 13th, we hopped off my tour bus at the Wynn hotel in Las Vegas before our driver drove on to Oregon. My Tumi is PACKED – I don't even remember what all I had in this for the weekend as I wasn't sure what to expect!

Here we are pool side. Having my dad, Jerry, and uncle out here for some of our shows and this quick getaway means the world to me.

Dad told me that once we get married, mine and his relationship take the back burner and to ensure I always put Carly and her needs first. I love how much my family loves Carly, and we are so blessed to have their support as we start this next phase of our lives together.

Also, this is where I won $1,500 playing blackjack with dad and my friend Tom!

XS brought out bottles of champagne, signs and even posters of my head! I had no idea and Tom and the guys really went out of their way to make this such an amazing bachelor party.

Taking it all in. The Chainsmokers were playing and then — randomly — Shaquille O'Neal showed up at XS?! What an unforgettable night.
