Raye, Epic Parting Ways

Collin Raye and his record label, Sony’s Epic imprint, appear headed for a split, but papers have not been signed yet says Raye’s manager, Steve Cox. “Nothing’s really done yet, not official,” Cox told country.com Wednesday. “Nobody’s at fault here. Nobody has done anything but handle themselves correctly.” Sony will release a new album by Raye, Can’t Back Down, on Jan. 22. Raye has five platinum albums and one gold album during his tenure with the label, which began in 1991. 12/19/01
