Randy Travis to Release “Influence Vol. 2: The Man I Am”

Randy Travis

Multi-Platinum and seven-time GRAMMY winning icon Randy Travis’ new album Influence Vol. 2: The Man I Am due August 19th is available for pre-order on iTunes now.

Fans who pre-order the album will get “Don’t Worry ‘Bout Me” as a special instant download. Two more songs will be available each week following the pre-order, including “Only Daddy That’ll Walk The Line” on July 29th and “That’s The Way Love Goes,” on August 5th (full track listing below). Additionally, fans will be able to download the full album online on August 12th, an entire week before the official release date. Much like his popular Influence Vol. 1 collection released last year, Vol. 2 reminds us of the unique feel created in the studio that shines through on each song by Travis and a special group of friends he calls band members.

Travis and his music have been a major influence to other country artists throughout his celebrated career. On Influence Vol. 2: The Man I Am, Travis again pays homage to some of the songs and artists that were instrumental in crafting his musical career.

“We had such a great time putting together Influence Vol. 1, but there were still so many musical heroes of yesteryear that I learned from and wanted to honor. We had no choice but to release a second volume. The “Influence” that the older, great ones had on me, and the “Influence” that I may, somehow, have on the ones that come along after me, is God’s way of allowing us to pay it forward. It is my prayer answered—and, His will done—it is what makes me, “the man I am.” – Randy Travis

Did Taylor Swift Turn Down Working with Randy Travis?

I’m pretty sure this story is simply the rumor mill at work but an unnamed source has apparently told Showbiz Spy that Taylor Swift has turned down an invitation from Randy Travis to work together.

According to the site, Randy reached out to the “Red” singer to help him reboot his career and Taylor refused. The website reported that an unnamed source claims:

“Randy is desperate to get his career back on track. He has had his people reach out to Taylor Swift about a possible duet, but she said no!”

The website goes on to add that another unnamed source, allegedly close to Taylor, says that she refuses to work with the struggling singer:

“Taylor is steering well clear of Randy. She knows about all his troubles. She can’t be associated with someone like that.”

Randy was hospitalized last summer, underwent surgery and suffered a stroke.  Recently photos have surfaced that show that Randy’s condition is improving.
