Randy Travis Sings Classic Country Songs on New Album “Influence Vol. 2: The Man That I Am,” On Sale Now

There’s nothing like the classic country baritone of Randy Travis . . . unless it’s that memorable voice on legendary country songs. Fortunately, that pairing is exactly what is featured on Randy’s newest release, Influence Vol. 2: The Man That I Am.

The 13-song collection, available on iTunes today and in stores Aug. 19, is an album of the tunes that inspired Randy Travis’ 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,” he says in a release. “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.’”

You can read more about Randy and get an update on his medical condition, from fiancée Mary Davis, in the Aug. 18, 2014 issue of Country Weekly.

In addition to the music, Randy and his Warner Bros. record label have released a series of companion concept videos on YouTube.
