Carlton Ray Scott (born in Semora, North Carolina) is an American country music artist. He started his first band at age nineteen, and later moved to Atlanta, Georgia to attend the Music Business Institute. After receiving an Associate's degree, he moved to Raleigh, North Carolina, where he started another band before moving again, to Nashville, Tennessee. While there, Ray began writing songs, and landed two chart hits as a songwriter: "A Few Questions" by Clay Walker and "Pray for the Fish" by Randy Travis.[2]

He eventually signed to Warner Bros. Records as a singer in 2005, releasing the album My Kind of Music.[2] The album produced three singles in "My Kind of Music" (which peaked at #39 on the Hot Country Songs charts[1]), "Gone Either Way" and "I Didn't Come Here to Talk." After "I Didn't Come Here to Talk" failed to chart, Scott left Warner Bros. Records. His second album, Crazy Like Me, was released in 2008 on Jethropolitan Records.
