Soldiers Fervently Perform Randy Travis’ “Three Wooden Crosses”

As many of you know, Randy Travis has released a number of songs that have become massive in country music. But, none have touched more people than his all-time gospel hit, “Three Wooden Crosses.”

“Three Wooden Crosses:” An All-Time Favorite Gospel Tune

Penned by Kim Williams and Doug Johnson, the song is a tale of a farmer, a teacher and a preacher who were all killed in a bus crash. It then explains all of the things that they left behind. The preacher left his blood-stained Bible to the sole survivor of the accident – a prostitute.

As the song approaches its end, the singer reveals that the pastor’s mother is the prostitute in the song. He reveals that he grew up with his mother reading him the blood-stained Bible. This practice led to his love for God and passion for ministry. With this, the singer realizes why there are only three crosses erected along the highway. This statement is evident in the line:

“There are three wooden crosses on the right side of the highway…”

The song, “Three Wooden Crosses” has since then resonated and inspired people and artists alike. In fact, other singers have covered it as a tribute to Travis. Josh Turner and Kane Brown are just two of the many artists who have released their versions and honored Travis with their heartfelt renditions.

Two Soldiers Honor Travis with “Three Wooden Crosses”

In 2013, who could ever forget, two soldiers and friends decided to cover the song in honor of Randy Travis? Yes, it was. Whitley and Walker paid tribute to the country music legend with his favorite gospel tune.

Earlier, the two revealed that they were “just goofing around” when they decided to render the song. Little did they realize that their “goofing around moment” became a great version of the song.

Singing together inside their room, Whitley and Walker sang along as Travis’ recording of “Three Wooden Crosses” played in the background. Ultimately, they sang purely from their hearts and gave a powerful and passionate version of the song.

Indeed, it is awe-inspiring and heartwarming watching these two unsung heroes take on a Randy Travis hit. But, it’s more beautiful to know that aside from their great vocals, they have praised the Lord through their singing alone.
