Randy Travis [2] will release his 21st studio album October 1. Influence Vol. 1: The Man I Am will celebrate the songs and artists that have been instrumental in developing Randy’s career, including Merle Haggard [3], George Jones [4], Lefty Frizzell and more.

“When I think of my musical heroes of yesteryear, or the younger stars of this year, I am reminded that it is true we learn from the ones ahead of us, and teach the ones that follow,” Randy said. “They are the reason I chose to make this album.”

Earlier this year, Randy released a duet with Joe Nichols [5] in tribute to longtime friend George Jones [4]. He debuted “Tonight I’m Playin’ Possum” during the 2013 CMA Music Festival in June. The song can be downloaded on iTunes.
