Can't Back Down is the seventh studio album released by country music artist Collin Raye. It was also his last album for Epic Records, and the first album of his career not to produce any Top 40 country hits. "Ain't Nobody Gonna Take That from Me", the first single, reached #43 on the Hot Country Songs charts. "What I Need", the second single, failed to chart.

Critical reception[edit]

Maria Konicki Dinoia of Allmusic rated the album three stars out of five. She considered it "in much the same vein" as his previous albums, saying that "fans will come to love and appreciate" it.[1]
