Randy Travis

Randy Travis April 10, 2005

Last night at Willow Randy Travis gave a mini-concert. The place was packed. We are not country fans, but his song on the three wooden crosses was good enough to make it on all kinds of charts, and won our hearts. He then led everyone in a worship song. And then he finished off with Forever and Ever, Amen.

So today I’ve had a hard time getting that kind of music off my mind. Randy Travis has quite a story, and he seems to be quite innocent about it all. I was impressed with his lack of understanding why he was so angry as a young kid. He just knows that Christ took it away, which reminds of the blind man who had been healed by Jesus and he didn’t know all that much theology but he was quite sure that he was once blind but could now see.

Our son and his wife, and my daughter, were here this afternoon. Then we had a nice dinner together. Nice to have all of us together (our son-in-law was absent, away at a church conference in California).

And, how about Tiger? Great tournament, which the Masters always is. And lots of those good southern folk who were at that tournament probably listened to some Randy Travis on their way home. I hope Randy’s story was more important to them.

  • Hello Scot, I really appreciated your visit and comment.I have always enjoyed Randy Travis’s voice – I had no idea about his salvation story; although I suppose I should have “heard” it through his songs. Thanks for sharing about the concert.

  • Who’s Randy Travis?You know, us Rock ‘n’ Roll types don’t know too much about country music.Just kidding. I think I may have heard his name before… Sounds like a geat evening!

    Love your comments on randy Travis concert. i wasn’t at that particular one but am an avid dedicated fan and have attended 305 of randy’s performances since 1988 following him both through his country and Christian careers. It is always great to me to read about others who are not as familiar with him as i am to say they enjoyed his performance and story.
    I’ve gotten to meet randy on several occasions so can only say he is as nice and as sincere as he appears. Glad you enjoyed the show.
