Biography

One of the most popular and acclaimed country and gospel singers of all time, Randy Travis was blessed with an instantly recognizable, deep voice. He became a star thanks to the efforts of his much older manager-turned-secret wife, Lib Hatcher, and scored an amazing run of No. 1 hits that included "On the Other Hand," "Forever and Ever, Amen," "Deeper Than the Holler," and "It's Just A Matter of Time." Arguably the most dominant country star of the late 1980s, Travis also acted, scoring parts in such projects as "Frank & Jesse" (1995), "The Rainmaker" (1997) and a recurring role on "Touched by an Angel" (CBS, 1994-2003). As country music tastes changed, Travis reinvented himself as a first-rate gospel singer, to enormous critical and impressive commercial success. Selling more than 20 million albums over his career and winning numerous Grammys and Academy of Country Music Awards, the singer's golden legacy was increasingly in danger of being tarnished by his frequent later-career run-ins with the law. Despite his personal demons, Randy Travis was unquestionably one of the most gifted and acclaimed voices of his chosen genres, and built an amazing song catalog impressive enough to stand the test of time.
