Country vocalist Collin Raye was one of the true hit makers of the 1990s, and he still continues to crank out soulful, heartfelt material with the honesty and richness that is signature to his vocals alone.

With 24 top ten records, 16 #1 hits, and having been a 10 time male vocalist of the year nominee (5 CMA and 5 ACM), this truly electrifying performer of his era will bring that unforgettable voice to the stage of Detroit Lakes’ Historic Holmes Theatre this Thursday, Jan. 8 at 7:30 p.m.

Collin Raye is nothing if not passionate. His soulful delivery has set country standards in such searing ballads as “Love, Me,” “In This Life,” “Not That Different” and “If I Were You.”

Always an energizing showman, he has also blazed through such vivid rockers as “My Kind of Girl,” “That’s My Story,” “I Can Still Feel You” and “I Want You Bad.”

Raye first shot to fame with “Love, Me” in 1991. Listeners were so moved by this golden and pure voice that this song set the cornerstone for a career built on meaningful and emotional songs that have often been used for weddings, anniversaries, memorial services and funerals.

When “Little Rock,” an anthem for those struggling with addition recovery, hit the chart in 1994, its video led to over 100,000 phone calls to Alcoholics Anonymous from folks seeking help in their addictions.

“Not That Different” was a song that pleaded for tolerance, while “In This Life” became a wedding favorite, and “I Think About You” won awards for its song and video, which put a spotlight on the exploitation of women and children.

Tickets for Thursday’s show are $30 for adults, $15 for students, and may be purchased by phone at 218-844-7469, online at www.dlccc.org , or in person at the Holmes Box Office, 806 Summit Ave. (open 10 a.m.-2 p.m. Monday through Friday).
