Country music star Michael Ray's "Her World Or Mine" music video stars actor Chad Michael Murray and tells a very personal story! Watch it here!

The Michael Ray Her World Or Mine song was was released in May 2019 as the third single from his second major-label studio album, Amos.

Country music artist Michael Ray says the heartbreak expressed in “Her World or Mine,” poignantly brought to life in his latest music video, “is the reason I got into country music.” Ray’s third single is the emotional centerpiece of his 11-song sophomore album Amos and starkly contrasts the carefree theme and upbeat sound of his last single and third No. 1 hit, “One That Got Away.”

“I wanted to tell the story of my parents’ divorce and that part of my life – the confusion and the fact that it wasn’t easy for a while. And losing my grandparents was a massive hit, not only to me, but my whole family,” explains Ray.

The new video features film and television star Chad Michael Murray in the role of Michael’s father. The two met at the CMT Awards four years ago and have been friends ever since.  “This song touched me. It’s my favorite, personally,” Murray said. “Watching the song play and seeing everybody react and seeing them go through their own honest memories is trippy. It’s really fun to watch.”

The video for “Her World Or Mine” is based on Ray’s experience as a child of divorce, with his entire family and himself as a child portrayed, as they navigate hard life changes and separation until the death of Ray’s grandmother brings them together.  “It’s so relatable and it deals with so many issues that everybody’s going through,” continued Murray. “You’re going to see so many people come up to you and say, ‘That’s my song.’ And it will be for different reasons because they went through different trials and tribulations to get them there. That’s what’s cool about it.”

Ray was raised in rural central Florida and was very close with his grandfather, who taught him how to play guitar.  “When my parents were going through their divorce is when my grandfather started teaching me guitar chords – it was my outlet. It was my way to get away from all the hell and chaos that was going on,” shares Ray.

The music video became the most popular of Michael Ray’s career with over 28 million views as of March of 2022.  Watch the official music video and see the written lyrics below.

Michael Ray Her World Or Mine Lyrics

One of us still has our picture taped up on the dash
One of us took that one from Mexico, threw it in the trash
One of us don’t even notice when the radio plays that song
One of us breaks down and has to pull over whenever it comes on
Nah there ain’t no in between, when it comes to her and me
One of us moved on, one of us got stuck
One of us is drinkin’ just for fun, one of us drinkin’ to get drunk
One of us sleeps good, and one of us hates to face the night
Just depends if you’re talkin’ about her world or mine
There’s a number on a phone that one of us erased
There’s a “late-night can we try again?” call one of us wants to make
‘Cause one of us can’t even think about bein’ in another’s arms
And there’s a car in the drive that stayed all night, where one of us used to park
One of us moved on, one of us got stuck
One of us is drinkin’ just for fun, one of us drinkin’ to get drunk
One of us sleeps good, and one of us hates to face the night
Just depends if you’re talkin’ about her world or mine
For a while we had forever in our hands
That’s why one of us can’t understand
How one of us moved on, one of us got stuck
One of us is drinkin’ just for fun, one of us drinkin’ to get drunk
One of us sleeps good, one of us hates to face the night
Just depends if you’re talkin’ about her world or mine
Yeah that’s the difference between her world or mine
