Number 837 - Randy Travis
Number 837 Randy Travis "Forever & Ever" (1987) . .
I Love Country Music!
There i said it.
Actually most "classic country" music makes want to reach, but "modern country" is such a fantastic genre. One day (if ever) you peruse my Mellow Mix Volumes on the right under the links (one day they will be completed too, the Top 1000 at the moment stops me from doing it) you will see tons of modern country music.
Why i love it? God knows. I mean i shouldn't, i am not from the "South" of America, nor do i live in Gore (NZ). Some of the best songs written with real substance have been country.
Now Randy Travis almost fits into the "Classic Country" genre, but this song is very quaint and you will find yourself singing the chorus (whether you hate it or like it).
"Like the Beatles in rock, Randy Travis marks a generational shift in country music. When his Storms of Life came out in 1986, country music was still wallowing in the post-urban cowboy recession, chasing elusive crossover dreams. Travis brought the music back to its basics, sounding like nothing so much as a perfect blend of George Jones and Merle Haggard. He became the dominant male voice in country until the rise of "hat acts" like Garth Brooks and Clint Black, releasing seven consecutive number one singles during one stretch. He won the CMA's Horizon Award in 1986 and was the association's Male Vocalist of the Year in 1987 and 1988. "
