Collin Raye is known for his hits like “Love, Me”, “In This Life” and “That’s My Story”, but the popular ’90s singer with 16 No. 1 country songs is about to mix things up.
Raye forms a classic rock band – Collin Raye and The Riff Raff. The group’s first concert will be on January 26 at 3rd & Lindsley in Nashville.
“It’s something that I’ve wanted to do for a long time,” Raye said of his rock band in a statement. “It’s a tribute to the greatest American and British rock ‘n’ roll music of all time.”
The Arkansas native grew up listening to Merle Haggard, George Jones, Waylon Jennings and other classic country artists. He discovered classical rock as a teenager and learned to play this style of music. Now he wants to try it out on stage and hopes the experience will transport audiences to a time when life was less chaotic.
“My goal with The Riff Raff is to take audiences back to another time in their lives when we were young and carefree with life still ahead of us,” said Raye. “For two or three hours we’ll be young and carefree again. I invite anyone who loves classic rock to come see us for a night of musical and fun nostalgia.
