Collin Raye

Some of the best country music came out of the ‘90s when the genre was supplying some big crossover hits and the whole world became obsessed with line dancing. One artist who found fame during that time was Collin Raye, who’ll be performing at Wildhorse Resort & Casino on February 14.


Raye released his debut album in 1991 competing with artists like Garth Brooks, Trisha Yearwood, Toby Keith, Shanie Twain and the Dixie Chicks. He would put out five more albums before the end of the decade, finding his way to the top of the charts with “Love Me,” “Every Second,” and “I Want You Bad (and That Ain’t Good).”


The artist would go on to have 21 top ten hits including “I Can Still Feel You,” “My Kind of Girl,” and “One Boy, One Girl.”


Raye still continues to crank out soulful, heartfelt material with the honesty and richness that is signature to his vocals alone. Having been a 10 time male vocalist of the year nominee (5 CMA and 5 ACM), this truly electrifying performer remains one of the great voices of our time.


Tickets are on sale now at the Wildhorse gift shop or online at http://bit.ly/WRCEntertainment.  With gratitude to the armed forces, Wildhorse offers a 20% discount to all military for this event. Please present Military ID and purchase in person at the Wildhorse Gift Shop. Doors open at 7pm, show starts at 8pm. 21 and over.
