Collin Raye took country music by storm. The mega-hit maker and ACM Award winner began his career in the early 1990’s when he released his debut album All I Can Be, which catapulted his first #1 hit, “Love, Me.” In 1992, the widely-recognized single earned Collin several prestigious nominations across the country scene including Song of the Year as well as Single of the Year. All I Can Be was the first of five of his albums to skyrocket to platinum status. Collin was instantly a household name and a country fan favorite.
Charting 15 No. 1 hits and his 23 Top-10 hits, Collin claimed his stake in country stardom. Throughout his prolific career thus far, Collin has released 11 studio albums including a greatest hits complication, a Christmas record and a live album. Collin has received five nominations for CMA Male Vocalist of the Year and three nominations for ACM Male Vocalist of the Year. In addition, he received a CMA nomination for Best Video, two CMA nominations for Song of the Year and two nominations for single of the Year. In 1997, Raye took home the ACM Award for Music Video of the Year for “I Think about You.”
Three years ago, following the death of his granddaughter Haley, Collin founded a charity in her memory which aims to help families in need of wheelchairs for their children. The Haley Bell Blessed Chair Foundation is dear to his heart and he holds an event annually in her honor.
Recently, Collin has embarked on a new chapter in his life, signing with Brand Entertainment Agency for the launch of his 2013 “That’s My Story” tour.
