One of the true hitmakers of the 1990's, Collin Raye still continues to crank out soulful, heartfelt material with the honesty and richness that is signature to his vocals on his 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 #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. "Little Rock" was an anthem for the recovery community. "Not That Different" pleaded for tolerance. "In This Life" became a wedding favorite. He won awards for the child-advocacy video "I Think About You."
