专辑名称：Never Going Back
公司厂牌：Time Life Records
Floyd Collin Wray (born August 22, 1959 or 1960, in De Queen, Arkansas, USA) is an American country music singer, known professionally as Collin Raye. He made his debut on the American country music scene in 1991 with the release of his debut album All I Can Be, which produced his first Number One hit in "Love, Me". All I Can Be was the first of four consecutive albums released by Raye to achieve RIAA platinum certification in the United States for sales of one million copies each.
Throughout the 1990s, Collin continued to produce Top Ten singles on the country music charts. By the end of the decade, however, his momentum had slowed; 2001's Can't Back Down was his first album that did not produce a Top 40 country hit, and he was dropped by his record label soon afterward. He did not record another studio album until 2005's Twenty Years and Change, released on an independent label.
Between 1991 and 2007, Raye charted thirty singles on the U.S. country charts; he has also charted twice on the Adult Contemporary format as a duet partner on two Jim Brickman songs. Four of Raye's singles have reached Number One on the Billboard country music charts: 1992's "Love, Me" and "In This Life", 1994's "My Kind of Girl", and 1998's "I Can Still Feel You". He has also recorded a total of eleven studio albums, counting a Christmas album and a compilation of lullabies, in addition to releasing a Greatest Hits compilation, a live album, and a live CD/DVD package. His most recent album, Never Going Back, was released via Saguaro Road Records on April 28, 2009.
拥有五张白金唱片及九首乡村冠军单曲傲人纪录的Collin Raye，在许多方面都展现出迥异于其它乡村歌手的特殊魅力。Collin Raye的创作融合了乡村、流行、民谣及抒情摇滚等多样曲风，而他舒缓的歌声中夹带着沛盈的情感，甜而不腻，抒情而不滥情，带有些许丹佛格伯（Dan Fogelberg）况味的的诗意气质更是如影随形地随时从他的声音里透露出来。
由于母亲也是着名的乡村歌手，耳濡目染的结果使得Collin Raye的进入音乐界亦显得理所当然。Collin Raye先是和弟弟Scott合组了一支二重唱Wray Brothers，两兄弟在八十年代缔造过不少排行佳绩，单飞后的Collin Raye仍然延续着这股气势，首张专辑"All I Can Be"的专辑同名单曲不但一举打进全美乡村Top 40，专辑里的另一首单曲"Love, Me"更是雄霸了三周全美乡村单曲榜冠军宝座。"Love, Me"这首歌曲描述的是即使天人永隔也无法阻断的爱情，是首听过必为之动容的感人抒情经典。
Collin Raye在这之后陆陆续续又以多张白金专辑以及排行金曲奠定他在乡村乐界的巨星地位，然而Collin Raye对于自己当初进入歌坛的初衷依然未变，那就是为抚慰人心而唱，因此他并不会为了市场需求而做出哗众取宠的表现，他还是一个字一个字、一个音符一个音符地悉心诚意打造出真正感动人心的歌声。
