Gray is the son of Dan and Mitzi Davis of Edgewater, Florida[disambiguation needed]. In Hellyeah's DVD, Below the Belt, he talks of how his grandmother, Betty Rau, raised him and would bring him to perform in choir.
In 2005, Gray's grandmother Betty Rau died after battling cancer for several years. Gray dedicated the Hellyeah song "Thank You" to his grandmother and also wrote Mudvayne's "Death Blooms" about her illness.
Gray is known both for his clean singing and trademark screams and growls.
