Howdy Texas Music Fans! Anyone who loves country music loves Randy Travis. This Country Music Hall of Famer has had an incredible career, racking up the gold, or should I say, multi-platinum albums, (selling over 25 million to be exact) with his fabulous voice, singing and song writing skills.
Randy has recorded over 20 studio albums and of his 50 singles, 22 have topped the Billboard Hot Country Songs chart at No. 1. Let’s reminisce just a bit. How about songs like “Forever and Ever, Amen,” “I Told You So,” or my favorite, “On the Other Hand” oh, and of course “Too Gone for Too Long,” just to mention a few. These classics have become anthems to country music fans around the world.
I first met Randy and had the opportunity to work with him in the early 90s at the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo where he rocked the house and broke records every time he came to town. And, as fate would have it, we have crossed paths again after some 20 or so years and rekindled our friendship.
