Randy Travis just celebrated his 60th birthday at the Grand Ole Opry with friends, family, and a sold-out crowd and now his memoir will be released on May 14.
Fans will have the opportunity to meet Travis and receive a signed copy of his latest book on Saturday, June 8th at 1pm at Barnes and Noble, located at 1701 Mallory Lane, Franklin. Tickets must be purchased for the event here.
Travis’s newly released memoir, Forever and Ever, Amen: A Memoir of Music, Faith, and Braving the Storms of Life was written with the help of New York Times Best-Selling Author, Ken Abraham, and Travis’ wife Mary. This memoir recounts the singer’s journey of perseverance and redemption from his early childhood memories up until the book was penned, recovering from a life-changing stroke and painful divorce, enjoying the life he was given and learning to “sing a new song.”
With candid, never-before-told details, Travis recounts his troubled youth full of drinking and stealing cars, a tense relationship with his father, and the rollercoaster ride of more than 40 years in the music and acting industry. He also shares the highs that came after playing “Forever and Ever, Amen” for the first time; having countless number one hits and selling more than 25 million albums; and most importantly, the faith that has seen him through all of it.
