Randy Travis is a country music star who has been known worldwide for decades. His amazing talent simply proves his spot in the music industry. In addition, he has released a lot of songs that have hit the charts. These include his ever famous gospel hits, “Forever and Ever, Amen” and “Three Wooden Crosses,” and his love song “I Told You So.”
Unfortunately in 2013, Travis underwent one of the lowest points in his life. He was admitted to a hospital for viral cardiomyopathy after a viral upper respiratory infection. Worse, his condition was classified critical. He then suffered a massive stroke and had surgery to relieve pressure on his brain. After months of being in the hospital, he miraculously woke up. His good condition persisted until then.
With this amazing work of God, we are very thankful that Travis is in his self again. Hence, seeing him perform again is such a wonderful thing. He may not be the way he was before, but it is his presence that counts more.
Travis Delivers a Classic Christmas Carol
There is no holding back when it comes to Randy Travis honoring the Lord. Known for releasing a number of gospel hits, Travis does not forget the annual celebration of the birth of our Savior. That is why in this unforgettable video, he delivers a heavenly “Silent Night” for the occasion.
Travis, together with 40 other singers from the First Baptist Church, trekked down through the caves until they reached a point called the “Rock of Ages.” From there, they lifted up their souls and belted this Christmas classic.

“Silent Night:” A Popular Christmas Carol
Composed in 1818 and published in 1833, “Silent Night” was conceived by Franz Xaver Gruber with the lyrics by Joseph Mohr in Austria. Its very first performance was held on the Christmas Eve in 1818 at St. Nicholas parish church in Oberndorf, a small village in Austria. Throughout time, the song has become a famous carol sung every Christmas season. It was then translated into different languages including English. Its original title was in German, and it is called “Stille Nacht, Heilige Nacht” which translates “Silent Night, Holy Night” in English.
