Over the past several months, I've had the privilege of working with country music's hottest new talent, Imaj. Imaj's vocals are absolutely amazing and in an era ruled by young artists and "pop" sounds, Imaj pays tribute to the vintage stars of country music. She covers "Stand By Your Man, " "You Ain't Woman Enough To Take My Man," and "Man In Black" brilliantly! She also writes a good bit of her own material. This young lady is on the verge of big success and I'm proud to call her a friend! She is a true, one of a kind talent! She will be performing with me at Collinfest in De Queen, Arkansas on Saturday, May 5th, 2012! Come check her out! You can also find Imaj on Facebook.
I had the honor and privilege of being a keynote speaker for the National Pro-Life Youth Rally in Washington, DC yesterday. It is an honor to speak on behalf and defend those who have no voice. Although the weather didn't quite cooperate, we still had a turn out of approximately 400,000 people. To say it was a success, would be a huge understatement! God Bless!
When you hear the name Collin Raye, you think of smooth, flawless vocals and chances are you probably immediately flash back to the 90's when Collin ruled country music radio with songs like "Little Rock", "That's My Story", "I Think About You", "Little Red Rodeo" and his sentimental hit, "Love Me". He's had a total of 16 #1 hits, so you would assume he's found where he needs to be and is satisfied with his success. Sadly, it took the illness of his granddaughter, Haley, and her death at the early age of 10 years old in April 2010, to confirm for Collin exactly where his music belongs, where he's most comfortable and to bring him to the place his heart now resides, with the Lord and with Christian music. He has no plans to return to country music as a primary market and this project will musically explain why.
