Collin Raye Counting Sheep Country Music CD Review

Collin Raye has released him most recent album entitled Counting Sheep.

It's a rare day indeed that I get a CD from an artist that I can truthfully say does not have a bad track in the bunch. I'm more than happy to announce that’s exactly what I must say about this one. There simply isn’t a bad one in the bunch. No fillers here at all.

The nice thing about a CD like this is when the talent is this rich even if Country isn’t your favorite genre you still can’t help but appreciate the greatness of the artist.

If you're even mildly into Country music you'll enjoy this album. Overall Counting Sheep is an outstanding release. I give it my double thumbs up. You will not be disappointed with one single track.

While the entire album is outstanding some of my favorites are track 2 - I’m Gonna Love You, track 8 - Hearts Are For When You Want To Love Someone, and track 11 - Stay Awake

My Bonus Pick, and the one that got Sore [ in "Stuck On REpeat"] is track 1 - Counting Sheep. It’s a great track!
