Influence Vol. 1: The Man I Am (Warner Bros.)
by Randy Travis
FOR FANS OF: Kenny Rogers, Alan Jackson, Collin Raye
Rating: 4 Stars
On his 21st studio album, country/gospel great Randy Travis turns to the artists and tunes who served as the primary muses in his multiple Grammy-, Dove- and Country- Music-Association-Awardwinning career. The crooner covers everyone from George Jones to Merle Haggard and Ernest Tubb in his charming neo-traditional style that hasn’t lost any of its luster, even amidst recent health scares.
