I am reviewing a copy of Forever and Ever, Amen through Thomas Nelson and Netgalley:
Randy Travis is beloved around the world, he has sold over twenty five million albums in both country and gospel genres. He is considered one of the finest performers of his generation with a fan base ranging from Mick Jagger to Gsrth Brooks!
Randy Travis went from a working class background in North Carolina to a job as a cook and club singer in Nashville, to overnight success with Storms of Life which launched the Neo Traditional movement in Country music. The first three decades are a true rags to riches story.
In 2009 Randy Travis’s seemingly charmed life began a downward spiral. His marriage ended, he learned his finances were a mess and his anger management issues led to alcohol abuse, public embarrassment and an arrest in 2012.
Just as he began piecing his life back together Randy suffered a massive stroke which they didn’t believe he would survive. But he did survive and he learned to walk again and in 2016 he accepted his induction into the Country Music Hall Of Fame by singing Amazing Grace.
I found Forever and Ever, Amen to be a heartfelt ad uplifting autobiography one that reminds us that even as we go through the valleys we can find strength.
Forever and Ever, Amen is worthy of five out of five stars!
