About Collin Raye:
Collin Raye’s searing ballads and electric performances have been captivating country audiences for 25 years. With 7 No. 1 hits, 24 top five singles, and ten CMA and ACM Male Vocalist of the Year nominations, Raye has clearly emerged as one of the great voices of our time. The De Queen, Arkansas native rose to fame in 1992 with the timeless number one hit, “Love, Me.” In 1994, his music video for the #1 hit, “Little Rock,” led to over 100,000 phone calls to help lines from those seeking help with their addictions. “Not That Different,” was a song that pleaded for tolerance, and “I Think About You” (awarded as “Video of the Year” by the Academy of Country Music in 1997) exposed exploitation of women and children. His latest album projects include His Love Remains, his first inspirational hymns album, as well as Still On The Line, a tribute album to Glen Campbell greatest hits. In 2014, he released his moving autobiography, A Voice Undefeated. But it was a stunning run of hits, and five straight Platinum certified CD’s in a row in the ’90s that carves his place in Nashville history. He has topped the charts with songs such as “In This Life,” “I Can Still Feel You,” and “That’s My Story,” “One Boy, One Girl,” and more than a dozen more! He is currently performing across the U.S. on The Big 25 Tour. For more information on Collin Raye and upcoming tour dates, visit collinraye.com.
