dbo:abstract
  • Collin Raye (* 22. August 1960 als Floyd Collin Wray in De Queen, Arkansas) ist ein Country-Sänger und Songwriter. Collin Rayes Mutter war eine erfolgreiche Musikerin, die unter anderem Auftritte mit Elvis Presley oder Johnny Cash vorweisen kann. Auch sein Vater und ein Onkel waren Musiker, und so war es fast unvermeidlich, dass Collin und sein Bruder Scott bereits als Kinder erstmals auf der Bühne standen. Ihre erste Band, die Wray Brothers Band, gründeten die Brüder 1976. Es wurden einige Singles produziert, von denen sich aber nur eine in den hinteren Bereichen der Country-Charts platzieren konnte. Die Band löste sich 1987 auf, und Collin Raye arbeitete anschließend als Sänger in Reno und Las Vegas. Seine 1980 geschlossene Ehe wurde nach schweren gesundheitlichen Problemen seiner Frau und seines zweiten Kindes geschieden. 1989 zog er nach Nashville. Ein Jahr später unterschrieb er beim Epic-Label einen Schallplattenvertrag. Sein Debüt-Album All I Can Be erschien 1992 und wurde mit Platin ausgezeichnet. Bereits seine zweite Single Love, Me erreichte Platz 1 der Country-Charts. Die nächsten Alben In This Life, Extremes, I Think About You und The Best Of Collin Raye: Direct Hits wurden ebenfalls mit Platin und My Walls Came Down noch mit Gold ausgezeichnet. Die ausgekoppelten Singles erreichten durchweg die vorderen Hitparadenplätze, In This Life schaffte Platz 1. Mit I Can Still Feel You erreichte er 1998 erneut die Spitzenposition der Country-Charts. Seine Verkaufserfolge ließen erst 2001 mit dem Album Can’t Back Down etwas nach. (de)
