Friday night's (Nov. 22) Playing Possum: The Final No Show concert was all about George Jones, except for a few minutes in the middle that were dedicated to beleaguered singer Randy Travis. Actor Jon Voight took the stage to ask fans to create a human chain of love for the 'Tonight I'm Playing Possum' singer, who was a longtime friend to Jones.
Over the summer, Randy Travis stared down a serioushealth scare. The country legend had congestive heart failure and suffered a stroke, and things were touch-and-go for a while -- he was even placed on life support.
Randy Travis' 'Influence Vol. 1: The Man I Am' is a simple collection of covers from artists that inspired him. Merle Haggard is the most represented singer, with eight cuts influenced by or recorded by him at some point. Three of the first four are Haggard songs, with 'What Have You Got Planned Tonight Diana' being the one to remember.
The legendary Randy Travis had a setback during his recovery from heart troubles and a stroke that kept him hospitalized last month. According to Sammy Kershaw, Travis developed pneumonia in mid-August.
Randy Travis had a rough summer. He suffered a stoke, had emergency surgery to save his life and is currently in recovery. But despite his intense health issues, the singer will release his 21st studio effort, 'Influence Vol. 1: The Man I Am,' this fall.
After several medical scares that included hospitalization due to congestive heart failure and a stroke (which required emergency surgery and found him in critical condition), singer Randy Travis has been released from the hospital.
It's possible the context in which Randy Travis releases his new single 'Tonight I'm Playin' Possum' could cause fans and critics to overstate its impact. Then again, maybe not. There are, after all, only so many words available to heap effusive praise on this brilliantly composed and performed traditional ballad.
Bad luck is partially to blame for Randy Travis' downward spiral after catching a virus. A respected cardiologist named Dr. Marc Klapholz says viruses are rare in the summertime, and most don't progress into the heart muscle. Travis was admitted to the hospital earlier this month with viral cardiomyopathy and congestive heart failure which led to a stroke three days later.
While the golden age of the music video didn't come until halfway through Randy Travis' storied career, the singer released a number of mini clips that proved he knew how to work a camera and a microphone.
