In celebration of his 25th anniversary as a recording artist, multi-platinum selling country singerÂ Collin RayeÂ will release a new legacy album titled,Â Collin Raye â€” 25 Years, 25 Hits,Â onÂ Tuesday,Â May 15.
The ACM Award-winning artist has recut 25 of his hit songs, including all 16 No. 1s, along with 3 bonus tracks, to celebrate his silver anniversary â€” 25 hits for 25 years.
“After working on this album for well over a year,Â our release date is finally drawing close,” says Raye. “I’m so proud of this record.Â For years, people have asked me, ‘Why don’t you have a collection ofÂ allÂ of your hits on one record, instead of several greatest hits albums each with different songs?’ Well, now I do â€” all 25 hits on one album.”
The 10-time “Male Vocalist of the Year” nominee (5 CMA and 5 ACM) recorded the album in Nashville with producerÂ Kelly Schoenfeld.
“It was a challenge to reproduce and beat what we did years ago, but I’m confident we have,” he adds. “This is the definitive CR collection, and basically, the story of my career in making music.”
Raye will celebrate the release at the Grand Ole Opry onÂ Tuesday, May 15, where he will perform in the historic circle and sign albums in-store for fans following the show.
