Get ready Texarkana because multi-platinum recording artist Collin Raye is coming back for a hometown show at Whiskey River Country on Friday, March 5, 2021.

Raye a DeQueen, Arkansas native grew up in this area and graduated from Texas High. Most of his friends and peers around here gave him the nickname "Bubba Wray." From an early age, Collin honed his musical skills by playing at several events including playing regularly at the Pines Country Club back in the day. After many years of doing this, he packed his bags and did what so many other musicians do, headed to Nashville, Tennessee where he eventually landed a record deal. And as they say in the music business, the rest is history. However, Collin Raye never forgot where he came from, and for many years he returned to his hometown of DeQueen for a yearly homecoming show that raised money for charitable causes in his community.

In the 1990s Collin Raye was a staple on the country music charts having produced 24 Top 10 singles, 16 Number 1 singles, 8 million albums sold, and 10-time CMA and ACM Nominee. And five times Raye was nominated as country music’s Male Vocalist of the Year.

At his Whiskey River Country Show, Raye will not only be performing all his hits that fans have come to enjoy over the years but is excited to perform songs off his brand new album, Scars his first album in more than ten years. Most recently, Raye invited his longtime friend Miranda Lambert to join him on the title track of the album, Scars. By the way, his brother Scotty plays guitar in Miranda's band and both Scotty and Collin wrote or co-wrote 14 tracks off the new album. From what I hear, this album will take you on an emotional rollercoaster musical journey.

Having played Collin's music throughout the years on radio and knowing him, he is truly an artist, a true balladeer, he knows how to connect with the human heart and tug at your heartstrings at just the right moment. His shows are always fun and upbeat and very entertaining, to say the least.
