Randy Travis Releases Passing Through

Randy Travis will be releasing his highly anticipated upcoming project, Passing Through on November 9, as a follow-up to his highly successful Word/Warner Bros. Records projects Rise & Shine and Worship & Faith.
Passing Through will showcase Travis’s unmatched story-telling and communicative ability through song, in a familiar yet new way for his millions of fans and listeners.  The project tells of Randy’s walk of faith, and personal triumphs after his early years of self-destruction and pain. Travis’ deep faith shows through clearly on the twelve-track project as he takes us on a journey that is deep and wide, reflecting the struggles of his past and the odds he has beaten. “From your faith to the things that challenge you to relationships between husband and wife, it’s about what people go through each day,” says Travis.
With songs of love like the one written about grandparents long gone but reflected in the present day in “Four Walls, Passing Through also points to miracles that can be too easily mistaken for everyday conversations.  ”Running Blind” offers hope and advice on dealing with disappointment, while “Pick Up the Oars and Row” addresses more enduring issues with a message of simple words of wisdom.
“Passing Through showcases Randy’s talent as an artist and communicator in an incredibly strong way,” stated Mark Lusk, sr. vp of marketing, Word Records. “There’s a theatrical quality in these songs that I’ve never heard before and it’s very moving. As I listen to Randy sing, I hear his voice, but quickly identify with the character within the story of the song. It brings the story and the message within to life. I’m excited for people nation-wide to experience this album like I have. It’s powerful.”
A deeply spiritual man, Travis says that he has found freedom to enjoy his life without all the guilt and misery he once carried. With God’s intervention and guidance, Travis is a changed man from his teen-age years, when he was trapped by drugs and alcohol and scrapes with the law. When he was baptized 14 years ago it was evidence of how far he had really come. “I pray daily. I spend as much time as possible studying the Bible and talking with Pastors that have become close friends.  I know I’m weak and I know I need the word of God guiding me each day of my life, says Travis.
Travis, who’s #1 hit, “Three Wooden Crosses” from his project Rise & Shine, won “Song of the Year” honors at the 2004 Academy of Country Music Awards (ACMs), Country Recorded Song of the Year at GMA’s 35th Annual Music Awards on April 28, and received “Song of the Year” honors at the 37th Annual Country Music Association (CMA) awards show as well as from the Christian Country Music Association and The Nashville Songwriters Association.
In February, Travis picked up his fourth GRAMMY Award, for Rise and Shine, which won for “Best Southern, Country or Bluegrass Gospel Album.” Travis’ albums also have been the recipients of the past two Dove Awards for Country Album of the Year – Rise and Shine in 2003 and Worship and Faith this year.
In addition to accepting an award, Travis also presented the “Academy of Country Music/Home Depot Humanitarian Award” to recipient Martina McBride.
A tremendous highlight to his career, Travis was also recently inducted in the Hollywood Walk of Fame during a ceremony in Hollywood on Sept. 29.
