Collin Raye is set to perform a tribute to country icon Glen Campbell at the Franklin Theatre south of Nashville.

Raye has a deep connection to Campbell — he released a tribute album to the icon last year.

“I have loved him since I was nine years old watching the ‘Glen Campbell Goodtime Hour’ on CBS,” he says. “As fate would have it, when I first started in the business, he was one of the first people I met, and we’ve been friends ever since. I decided I wanted to do a tribute to him while he could still appreciate it. I wanted him to be able to hear it, and feel the love in it.”

Raye hit the country scene in a big way in the ’90′s. He continues to make music, and has 24 Top 10 records under his belt, along with 16 No. 1 hits and five Male Vocalist of the Year nominations at both the CMAs and ACM Awards.

“At this point in my life, I think I sing as well as I ever have,” he tells Billboard. “I don’t look the same, as everything else changes. Aging is God’s way of letting us know he has a sense of humor, but the voice is still the same, but that could change at any moment. While I still have it, I still want to make records … I’m 52 years old, so I’m not fooling myself by thinking I’m going to find that magic record and get back on the charts — that’s probably not going to happen. If this works, I may do more of these kind of things, because I am where I am because of people like Glen Campbell.”

Raye will hit the stage of the Franklin Theatre on Wednesday, June 4 at 7PM. More information and tickets are available at FranklinTheatre.com.
