|Randy Travis Mug Shot|
August 7, 2012
Love songs are wonderful and beautiful but the harsh realities of life are what we remember, what we talk about, what we relate to the most. A wonderful voice, great stage presence and right timing are key ingredients for artists to make it to the top, but it is living through life's most difficult moments and being able to inject those feelings into a song... that is what separates the good performers from the legendary, it is what makes a country singer an icon of the genre rather than just a star.
So while I wish Randy Travis the best in overcoming his current legal or emotional issues, I truly hope he does more than overcome, I hope he turns an awful experience into gain by writing and singing the pain and once again reclaiming his status as a legendary icon of the genre.
