All I Can Be is the debut studio album of American country music artist Collin Raye. It features the hit singles "All I Can Be (Is a Sweet Memory)" (originally recorded by Conway Twitty as "All I Can Be Is a Sweet Memory" on his 1985 album Chasin' Rainbows), "Love, Me" (Raye's first #1 on the Billboard country charts), and "Every Second". The final track, "If I Were You", is a different song than the song of the same name recorded on Raye's 1994 album Extremes. "Any Ole Stretch of Blacktop" was later recorded by Shenandoah as a new track for their 1992 Greatest Hits album.
