All Music Guide - Stephen Thomas Erlewine
Collin Raye parted ways with his longtime record label, Epic, after his 2001 album, Can't Back Down, and before he released a new album of original material, he decided to cut a live album for his first independent release since becoming a star. And that live release was part of Smith Music Group's successful Live at Billy Bob's Texas series, which recorded recent live concerts at the legendary Fort Worth venue and released them as tandem CD and DVD sets.

All Music Guide - Stephen Thomas Erlewine
Collin Raye parted ways with his longtime record label, Epic, after his 2001 album, Can't Back Down, and before he released a new album of original material, he decided to cut a live album for his first independent release since becoming a star. And that live release was part of Smith Music Group's successful Live at Billy Bob's Texas series, which recorded recent live concerts at the legendary Fort Worth venue and released them as tandem CD and DVD sets. Some of these Live at Billy Bob's Texas discs have represented career highlights -- David Allan Coe's is tremendous, for instance -- while others are a little rote. Raye doesn't hit either extreme with his entry. The album simply captures Raye doing a highly professional, high-energy set of his hits. At first it's a little too high-energy, as he really pushes "My Kind of Girl" too hard to get the set off to an energetic start, but soon the music reaches an amiable equilibrium, balancing skillfully between sentimental ballads and friendly honky tonkers. While there's nothing surprising -- Raye isn't suddenly revealed as a hardcore country purist -- it's a smooth and satisfying listen, a good first live effort, and a record that's sure to please longtime fans.

    Collin is still amazing!

    I'm a longtime fan of Collin Raye (10 years) and I've always enjoyed his music. Even if you have all of his albums, this collection makes them sound new and exciting again. Highly recommended for Collin fans, but because some of the songs like "If I Were You" are either snippets or shortened versions, I'd recommend his "Direct Hits" album to the new Collin fan.

    Raye at his best!

    This is the long-awaited Live CD (also available in DVD), from Collin Raye. It is a very entergetic show, and Collin as usual does a fantastic job! I would highly recommend this album, whether it be CD or DVD version!
