Collin Raye At Grand Ole Opry Country Music Show - Nashville
Country artist Collin Raye, born August 22, 1960 in De Queen, Arkansas, is the son of Lois Wray, the opening act for artists like Jerry Lee Lewis, Elvis Presley, Johnny Cash and Carl Perkins. Collin, as a child, regularly sang on stage with his mother and his brother. By the 80s, he and his brother, Scott, formed the Wray Brothers Band, for which Collin used the stage name Bubba Wray. Together, the band performed throughout Texas, then into Reno, Nevada. In 1986, they signed with Mercury Records as The Wrays, before disbanding. Collin then changed the spelling of his last name to “Raye” and became a solo artist under Epic Records in 1990.
