Randy Travis has certainly enjoyed his time on the spotlight, but the last few years he has taken more of a role in persuing an acting career than making music. <P>Personally, Randy Travis is one of my favorite artists. I wish that we heard more from him here in the US. <P> N

WOOHOO Brian, good choice! I agree with you on that one ;)<P>And yes he is popular here, I happen to be a big fan of his. Mainly his earlier albums, but still a fan.<P>PaulaN

I started listening to Randy when he first came out and have seen him in concert several times.(the last time was August 29 at Kentucky State Fair).the first few times he was very stiff and uncomfortable..even though the music was GREAT.About the time he married Liz(his manager) his shows took on a whole new personality.He played to the audience and actually seemed comfortable up on stage.Like Moni said he went into a semi-retirement and made a few movies but is back with a new album(a very good song and video for "A Man Ain't Made Of Stone") At the concert i went to last month the arena was probably only a third full but all who attended experienced a great show.If he heads your way..I'd reccommend it.N

Love him! That voice of his sends shivers up and down my spine, especially when he hits those low notes. Great singer! I loved "Diggin' Up Bones"!<P>abf,<BR>DebbieN
