Collin Ray has a lot of really good songs and I really enjoy his vocals. He is one of those guys that you never think of until you hear one of his songs and then remember how good he is. There are a lot of good tunes on this CD. It is a nice addition to your playlist.
Pleasant listening, awesome voice

"I'm not the biggest country music fan, but I've always appreciated the vocal talents of Collin Raye. He has the most honest, yearning, tenor voice that is suited for ballad singing, and yet he can cut loose with the best of them on up-tempo numbers like "That's My Story" and "Little Red Rodeo".The ballads, particularly "Little Rock", "Love, Me", "In This Life", "Not That Different", and "One Boy, One Girl", are where Mr. Raye shines. It's also fun to hear his version of the pop hit, "Open Arms".This album will appeal to anyone who appreciates genuine vocal talent, meaningful lyrics,and soaring melodies."

"The music in my world mostly revolves around hip-hop, R&B, and Jazz. I went through my little "punk-rock" phase in the '80s but country I shunned like the dickens, being way "too cool" for that.A friend of mine gave me a ride home from work about ten years or so ago and the song "Love,Me" came on. Poor thing, she was being kind of enough to give me a ride home, she didn't expect to have to pull over and find tissues.I'd been a closet country listner ever since. It's one of those things I hide from all of my friends (it's a country thing and they wouldn't understand). But this cd is going to get played over and over and over again in my car, and I don't care who hears it. I'll just have to make sure I have plenty of tissues again when "Love,Me" comes on.If you see the black girl in hip hop gear with braids bobbing her head to Collin Raye, say a how-do, because you'll know it's me."
