Few careers have produced as many country classics as that of Randy Travis. In addition to “Forever and Ever, Amen” and “Three Wooden Crosses,” Randy Travis has introduced songs such as, “On the Other Hand,” “Diggin’ Up Bones,” “Look Heart, No Hands” and his self-composed “I Told You So.” His 1990 smash “Hard Rock Bottom of Your Heart” has been recast as a bluegrass staple. “Point of Light” was the theme song of President Bush’s Volunteerism Campaign of 1991 and Carrie Underwood covers “I Told You So” on her 2007 album. To date, he has sold more than 25 million records and earned 22 number-one hits.
In 2003-04 his gospel collection Rise and Shine won both a Grammy Award and a Gospel Music Association (GMA) honor. Its single, “Three Wooden Crosses” became a No. 1 smash and was named Song of the Year by the Academy of Country Music.
His Worship & Faith album, released in 2003, earned a Grammy Award and GMA accolade. He was honored with a star on the prestigious Hollywood Walk of Fame in 2004. His 2006 traditional-gospel CD Glory Train won a GMA award and garnered Travis his sixth Grammy Award in 2007.
In addition to his recording career, Randy Travis has appeared in many films, TV movies and drama series. His movies include Fire Down Below with Steven Seagal, Black Dog with Patrick Swayze, Frank and Jesse with Rob Lowe and The Rainmaker with Danny DeVito, Jon Voight and Matt Damon.
Travis suffered a massive stroke in 2013 and went through years of therapy to regain the use of his voice. In a touching comeback, he sang a rendition of “Amazing Grace” as his Country Music Hall of Fame induction on October 16, 2016.
Inducted to the Music City Walk of Fame on November 9, 2008.
