I have to tell you it has been very difficult trying to find out information about Randy Travis health condition, so I can bring you up to date. Last we heard, Sammy Kershaw had tweeted that Randy had caught pneumonia while in the rehab facility after leaving the hospital. The latest, I've heard is that he is back home in Texas. Can't say for sure how true this is, but I will continue to dig and find out what I can. But one thing we do know for sure is that he has an incredible new album out.. He recorded the tracks for Influence Vol. 1: The Man I Am before his illness. The covers album honors some of Travis' musical heroes like Lefty Frizzell, Merle Haggard and George Jones and also features a duet with Joe Nichols on "Tonight I'm Playing Possum," a tribute to George Jones. But Merle Haggard is the most represented singer with 8 cuts influenced by or recorded by him at some point. Continue to keep Randy in your prayers and hopefully we'll be seeing him soon.
We continue today with our Drive Thru Lunch at noon and a chance for you to win lunch for two from Randy's Bistro in Porterville. Plus we'll take you requests and dedications.
