Raye performed “unplugged” to sell-out crowds in the Inn’s Valley Ballroom in 2011 and 2012. This time he appears with his band in a full concert production in the new outdoor Valley Sky Theatre.
Twenty-three of Collin’s 25 singles went top 10; 15 of them going all the way to N0. 1. Some of his biggest hits were ballads “Love, Me”, “Little Rock” and “In This Life” plus rockers, “I Think About You,” “My Kind of Girl,” “That’s My Story” and “I Want You Bad.”
One of the true hitmakers of the 1990s, Raye continues to crank out soulful, heartfelt material with the honesty and richness signature to his vocals on the StarPointe Records label. Collin first performed at the Carson Valley Inn in the late 1980s as the leader of The Wray Brothers Band. He signed a record deal with Epic Records in 1990 and his debut single “All I Can Be is a Sweet Memory” reached No. 29 on the Billboard Hot Country Singles and Tracks charts.
Raye shot to fame with “Love, Me” in 1991. Listeners were so touched that they used its lyrics at funerals and memorial services. That set the cornerstone for a career built on meaningful songs.
