Collin Raye Concert Review - Lincoln County Fair

We arrived at the Lincoln County Fair in MO on July 11, 2006 to see Collin Raye. The show was delayed due to a heavy rainstorm. Collin Raye's performance was scheduled for 8:30 p.m. but Raye took the stage at 9:45 p.m. singing "I Know That's Right." Collin was shocked at the number of fans that weathered the rainstorm and remained for his performance. He announced his appreciation to the audience for their dedication and then launched into "Little Red Rodeo" and "Someone You Used To Know."

Collin Raye wore a Cardinal jersey to show his appreciation to his MO fans stating, "It's been nine years since I've been in the St. Louis area and it's good to be back." Then Collin sang "Not That Different," "On The Verge" and "I Can Still Feel You."

Raye's performance was energetic, expressive and friendly. He moved all around the stage throughout his entire performance and posed for fans taking pictures. Next, he sang "In This Life," and "Hurricane Jane," which is his newest single and he just rapped up the video for it.

He introduced the next song as being the most touching and heart wrenching song that he's performed. The audience whispered that it was "Love, Me" and was surprised and laughed when he sang "That's My Story."

Collin commented that at a previous show fans requested he sing some older songs so he added the following cover songs to his set list: "Galveston," "Take It To The Limit," and "Ramblin' Man." He dedicated "Galveston" to our military home and overseas and to people with family in the military.

Raye signed autographs and shook hands with the fans at the front of the stage during his performance of his remaining songs: "One Boy, One Girl," "I Think About You," "Little Rock," "My Kind of Girl," and "I Want You Bad." Collin asked the audience if they'd like him to sing just one more song before he left to drive back to Nashville right after the show. The audience clapped and cheered for the closing song "Love, Me."

After Raye left the stage and the crowd disbursed, one of the road crew approached us and gave us a copy of the Collin Raye's song list and guitar picks. We walked over to Collins' tour bus to see if he was signing autographs. He greeted us with a welcoming smile, signed the song list and posed for pictures, which was a perfect way to end our evening.
