Josh Turner and Randy Travis Blessed Country Fans With “Forever And Ever, Amen” Live Performance

Josh Turner & Randy Travis Sing “Forever And Ever, Amen” Live On Air

In August 2020, country music heartthrob Josh Turner visited The Bobby Bones Show, and he was joined by a special guest, none other than the Country Music Hall of Famer Randy Travis.

In a video shared by the show, the two graced the audience with a performance of Travis’ 1987 country hit “Forever And Ever, Amen.” Sitting on a small stage, Turner was armed with his acoustic guitar, playing one of the most romantic country ballads. Meanwhile, Travis was sitting in his wheelchair at the stage’s side – smiling with several nods of approval all through Turner’s performance.

At the end of the song, something so emotional happened. Turner held back for Travis to sing the signature closer.

The duo’s version of “Forever And Ever, Amen” was released as a single on Turner’s album, Country State of Mind. This marked Travis’s first recording session following his massive stroke in 2013, which severely limited his speech and singing abilities.

Josh Turner Chose The Romantic Ballad For A Couple of Reasons 

There were two reasons that came to mind when Josh Turner was deciding which among Randy Travis’ songs to sing for his eight studio album. First of all, “Forever And Ever, Amen” is Travis’s signature song. Next, Turner revealed that he has always wanted to recreate what he had seen live on the record – so he did!

“Forever And Ever, Amen” was written by Nashville veteran songwriters Paul Overstreet and Don Schlitz. Randy Travis then released it as the first single off the album Always & Forever. The song reached No. 1 on Billboard’s Hot Country Songs chart and achieved the same success in the Canadian RPM Country Tracks chart.

Make sure to watch Turner and Travis’ incredible performance in the video below.
