Any chance you still have these giveaway tickets? I came across your site while searching for info/reviews on this concert. Collin Raye was my absolute favorite artist years ago (and I also really liked Bryan White & Jamie O'Neal), so even though I'm on a tight budget, I was seriously considering getting tickets after hearing about this concert. Would LOVE to win some, though :) Just in case--my favorite Christmas song is "It Could Happen Then" by none other than Collin Raye! I used to listen to his Christmas CD, The Gift, on repeat every year.
