I am not a big fan of country music, nor am I one who follows the comings and goings of the glitterati, but it was hard not to notice the troubles that country star Randy Travis has been having lately.  From a nasty divorce to an arrest for public intoxication to a DWI [with the very unflattering mug shot], Travis has been in the news.

However, these are not the focus of this post, but rather it is to highlight his talents.  Travis' performance at Pepperdine University was exceptional.  First, the sound folks truly understand how to maximize the acoustics of a country band in a relatively small venue.  Second, the talent, from Travis to each of the band members, was first-rate.  Third, there was little chit-chat between songs and the emphasis was clearly on the music.  An enjoyable evening was had by all.  Visit here for the top 10 Randy Travis songs - a few of good ones are below.
