PRAISE FOR THE BOOK
“Randy Travis saved country music. I wouldn't have had a career if it weren't for him and his music. This is his amazing story."
Country Music Artist
"At 12 years old I worked overtime hours on a hog farm and mowed extra lawns to get the money it took to buy a ticket to see my very first country music concert in Amarillo,TX. My favorite singer Randy Travis was coming to town and there was no way I was going to miss it! My Dad dropped me off at the Civic Center and I walked in alone with my solo paper ticket. I was in the nose bleed section, but sang along as loud as I could to every word as Randy rattled off hit after hit. I remember thinking, "I wish I could do that someday!" Randy Travis is a genuine inspiration and one of the true great country voices of all time."
Singer/Songwriter, "Big and Rich"
“Randy Travis, as many of you know, has always been a hero to me. I grew up loving his music and his persona. When I first met him, he was exactly who I expected him to be. Since then, he and I have become close friends; that’s something I treasure. I know firsthand how difficult it is to be a traveling singer and everything that comes with it. So, when you read this book, understand that Randy has gone from being someone I just admire for his music and persona to someone I admire for his strength, determination, endurance, conviction, and passion. He’s a stylistic singer, a writer, an actor, an artist, a warrior, a patriot, and a great Christian man. I’m proud to not only call him a hero, but a true friend.”
Country Music Artist
I remember the first time I heard Randy. Country music, in some sense, had forgotten its roots and changed direction. Then came Randy Travis. The authenticity in his voice was undeniable. I think he reminded an entire industry of who they are and where they came from. In my opinion – he helped shape Country Music. He’s the real deal.

"Forever and Ever, Amen tells all about Randy’s journey, the slips and falls, the massive triumphs, his bouts with his demons, his Christian conversion and his indomitable will to survive and live life to its fullest, and he takes us along for the ride.
And what a ride it is."
Country Recording Artist
"Randy and I have been friends for a long time. The first time I heard him sing, I said, 'He's got it!' I think Randy is one of the greatest singers in the world. I love you, Randy, and people are going to love your book!"

ABOUT THE BOOK
The long-awaited, deeply personal story of one of American music's greatest icons, a remarkable tale of the utmost heights of fame and success, the deepest lows of life's sorrows, and a miraculous return from the brink of death—told as only Randy Travis can.
Beloved around the world, Randy Travis has sold more than 25 million albums in both country and gospel and is considered one of the finest performers of his generation, admired by superstars across the musical landscape, from Garth Brooks to Mick Jagger.
From a working-class background in North Carolina to a job as a cook and club singer in Nashville to his "overnight success" with his smash 1986 album Storms of Life--which launched the neotraditional movement in country music--Randy’s first three decades are a true rags-to-riches story.
But in 2009, this seemingly charmed life began a downward spiral.
His marriage dissolved, he discovered that his finances had unraveled, and his struggles with anger led to alcohol abuse, public embarrassment, and even police arrest in 2012.
Then, just as he was putting his life back together, Randy suffered a devastating viral cardiomyopathy that led to a massive stroke which he was not expected to survive. Yet he not only survived but also learned to walk again and in 2016 accepted his induction into the Country Music Hall of Fame by singing the hymn that explains his life today: "Amazing Grace."
Filled with never-before-told stories, Forever and Ever, Amen is a riveting tale of unfathomable success, great joy, deep pain, and redemption that can come only from above.
With lifetime sales in excess of 25 million, Randy Travis is one of the biggest multi-genre record sellers of all time and a recent inductee into the Country Music Hall of Fame class of 2016. His honors include seven Grammy Awards, 10 Academy of Country Music statuettes, 10 American Music Awards, two People’s Choice awards, seven Music City News awards, eight Dove Awards from the Gospel Music Association and five Country Music Association honors. In addition, three of his performances earned CMA Song of the Year honors: “On the Other Hand” (1986), “Forever and Ever Amen” (1987) and “Three Wooden Crosses” (2002). To date, he has 18 No. 1 singles, 29 Top-10 smashes and more than 40 appearances in feature films and television shows to his credit. Ten of his albums are Gold Records. Eight are Platinum. Two have gone Double Platinum. One is Triple Platinum and another is Quintuple Platinum. In 2004, Randy was honored with his own star in the Hollywood Walk of Fame and is honored on the Music City Walk of Fame in Nashville, TN. He has been a member of the cast of the Grand Ole Opry since 1986. In 2017, Randy was honored with a wax figure at Madame Tussauds™ Nashville.
