God Willin’ & the Creek Don’t Rise debuted at #3 on the Billboard Top 200 and #1 on the Digital Album chart. This marked a personal sales best for Ray and tied his debut chart position at #3 with Gossip in the Grain. This album produced the single, “Beg Steal or Borrow” which became Ray’s first radio #1 on the AAA BDS and Mediabase. The Associated Press calls the album “one of the year’s best,” while the New York Daily News’ 5 star review says the album is “one of the stand out releases of the year.”
At “The Grammy Nominations Concert Live” a gasp went up in the press room when nominees for Song of the Year were revealed.
Alongside expected nods for the Eminem-Rihanna duet “Love the Way You Lie” and Lady Antebellum’s “Need You Now” was a surprise shout-out for “Beg Steal or Borrow” — the folksy single off Ray LaMontagne’s fourth studio album, “God Willin’ & the Creek Don’t Rise.” The disc picked up three nominations that night, including Best Engineered Album, Non-Classical and Best Contemporary Folk Album.
