It made my day when I received this video from Randy Travis this week. It reminded me of the good old days when I used to tour with Randy. We were good friends and spent plenty of time together talking about life on the road and just everything else. He was raised a country boy just like me and that always made for an easy friendship. Despite his multi-platinum albums, success as an actor in numerous films and tv series and later, his success in Gospel music – Randy remained as down to earth as anyone you’d ever meet. A truly humble guy who just enjoyed his work and always, remained one of our REAL country music heroes. I had the pleasure of visiting with Randy and his wife, Mary, a few weeks ago and we laughed a lot, just like we did on those old days of touring together.
