Randy Travis memoir tops ‘Best Country Music Books of All Time’

“Forever And Ever, Amen” now available in paperback

Last year music icon Randy Travis released his memoir, 60 years in the making, Forever and Ever, Amen: A Memoir of Music, Faith, and Braving the Storms of Life. Last month, the memoir took over the No. 1 spot on Book Authority’s 82 Best Country Music Books of All Time list. Written with the help of New York Times Best-Selling Author, Ken Abraham, and Travis’ wife Mary, the memoir recounts his life including all the ups and downs. Travis has endured a lot over the course of his life and this book details his early childhood memories, recovering from a life-changing stroke and painful divorce all the way to learning to enjoy the life he was given and the Grace of God.

“Forever and Ever, Amen tells all about Randy’s journey, the slips and falls, the massive triumphs, his bouts with his demons, his Christian conversion, and his indomitable will to survive and live life to its fullest, and he takes us along for the ride. And what a ride it is,” states country legend Charlie Daniels.

Throughout the book, Travis recounts never before told details about his troubled youth, his relationship with his father and his journey of more than 40 years in the music and acting industry.

The book is available in paperback, hardback, digital and as a MP3 CD Audiobook.

Beloved around the world, Randy Travis has sold more than 25 million albums in both country and gospel and is considered one of the finest performers of his generation, admired by superstars across the musical landscape, from Garth Brooks to Mick Jagger.

From a working-class background in North Carolina to a job as a cook and club singer in Nashville to his “overnight success” with his smash 1986 album  — which launched the neo-traditional movement in country music — Travis’ first three decades are a true rags-to-riches story.
