Randy Travis is known around the world, having sold over 25 million albums in both country and gospel music. He is considered one of the finest performers of his generation, and is respected by superstars across the musical landscape, from Garth Brooks to Mick Jagger.
Randy Travis comes from a working-class background in North Carolina and wound up working as a cook and club singer in Nashville. His 1986 album, Storms of Life, jolted him to overnight stardom as he launched the neotraditional movement in country music. Randy's first three decades tell a true rags-to-riches story.
In 2009, his seemingly wonderful life took a downward turn. His marriage fell apart, his finances were in jeopardy due to dishonest deals made without his knowledge, and his struggles with anger turned to alcohol abuse, public embarrassment, and an arrest in 2012.
Just as he was getting his life back together, Randy suffered a devastating viral cardiomyopathy that led to a major stroke from which he was not expected to survive. Not only did he survive, but he also learned to walk again. In 2016 he accepted his induction into the Country Music Hall of Fame where he sang Amazing Grace, a song that explains his life today.
Forever and Ever, Amen is packed with never-before-told stories, and captures an exciting story of unfathomable success, great joy, deep pain, and redemption that can only come from above.
