About "One Day (feat. Collin Raye)"

Have you ever wondered what it would be like to reach out to one of your idols, make a request, and actually see it happen? Country singer/songwriter and Curb Records recording artist Jackson Michelson has been a huge fan of Collin Raye as long as he can remember. When the thought occurred to Michelson to see if he could get one of his musical heroes to lend his vocals to his current radio single, “One Day,” the Oregon-native – who happened to have Raye’s number – texted him with the potentially long-shot request. Collin not only responded, but said he’d be glad to. The result is an even more impactful version of an already-emotive song.

“Growing up, Collin Raye was my musical hero,” shares Jackson. “Never in my wildest dreams did I think one day I would be able to sing a song with him, and now he is singing on my song, ‘One Day’! It’s a true honor to be able to create with him to sing such a personal song, and I’m so glad he connects with the song on such a deep level. He did an incredible performance on the song. I’m excited to share this version of ‘One Day’ with the world and it’s my hope it inspires people to live in the moment and soak in the time they have with the ones they love.”

Like a series of Polaroids where life is flashing before your eyes, “One Day” is a reminder that time is fleeting, and our kids are only little once. The beautiful ode to parenthood reveals its magic in the ordinary details of everyday life, proclaiming: “One day he’s gonna want my keys / One day she’ll be seventeen, running down the stairs in a prom dress / And we’ll be saying time went by fast / Wishing we could get some back.” Jackson’s current phase in the timeline of life is as a Dad with three little ones at home, while Collin is a proud grandpa.


About Jackson Michelson

Curb Records recording artist Jackson Michelson’s previous releases and powerful arrangements have been praised for “staying atop the beat to drive it through to the end” (Taste of Country). The promising rising star grew up in the “Grass Seed Capital of the World,” Corvallis, Oregon, listening to the sounds of his mother’s favorite country songs and father’s soul. Always looking up to his older brother who toured as a Christian artist, Michelson joined him on the road to help sell merch while taking everything in and making a to-do list all his own. After returning home with an undeniable fire lit inside of him, Michelson started playing in bands throughout his hometown while writing songs that balanced high-energy hooks with good natured storylines. Songs like “The Good Life” have been embraced by many and earned the support of SiriusXM’s The Highway, which helped Michelson reach new fans across the country. Before he knew it, his schedule was filled with over 200 shows a year including opening slots for Blake Shelton, Lee Brice, Frankie Ballard and more. Looking ahead, Michelson is excited for the next chapter of his ‘good life’ – one he’s built himself, show by show, and song by song – with new cities to play, songs to be written and opportunities to explore.
