Collin Raye and The Riff Raff: A Salute to Classic Rock will make their Nashville debut
Collin Raye may be known for his 90s country hits, but he also loves another genre: classic rock. Now, for the first time in concert, Raye will tip his hat to the beloved musical era when he takes the stage at 3rd & Lindsley in Nashville on Wednesday, January 26 with Collin Raye and The Riff Raff: A Salute to Classic Rock. .
“I’m very excited to be performing with our new rock ‘n’ roll band, The Riff Raff, later this month at 3rd & Lindsley,” Raye said. “It’s something I’ve wanted to do for a long time. It’s a tribute to the greatest American and British rock ‘n’ roll music of all time!
The live concert will begin at 8 p.m. local time at the popular venue in downtown Music City. Tickets are on sale now at 3rdandlindsley.com.
“I grew up with classic country music artists like Haggard, Jones, Buck, Cash, Waylon, Johnny Horton, Charley Pride, Tammy Wynette, Dolly, Connie Smith, Ray Price and all the greats,” Raye continues. “But I discovered rock ‘n’ roll as a teenager and learned to love it too. My brother and I played a lot of both styles of music throughout our youth and were influenced by both genres.
Raye believes the live event will take viewers on a musical journey to a time when life seemed a little less chaotic. “My goal with The Riff Raff is to take audiences back to another time in life where we were young and carefree with life ahead of us,” he explains. “For two or three hours, we will be young and carefree again! We think the atmosphere at 3rd & Lindsley is a great place to do that. I invite anyone who loves classic rock to come see us for an evening of fun and musical nostalgia!
Raye burned through the sales charts in the 90s, thanks to a mix of country-rock melodies and socially responsible material. Nothing if not passionate, Raye’s soulful delivery set country standards with searing ballads like “Love, Me,” “In This Life,” “Not That Different” and “If I Were You,” all while blazing other side of the spectrum with lively rockers like “My Kind of Girl”, “That’s My Story”, “I Can Still Feel You” and “I Want You Bad”. With 25 Top 10 records, 16 No. 1 hits and 10 times nominated for Male Vocalist of the Year, Raye remains one of the great voices of our time.
