On The Other Hand

Here’s to Randy Travis, who was my re-introduction to the Country-Western music in one of my previous lifetimes. I’m putting this post out to introduce this lovely song to those who don’t know it, to invite others to sing it, (you could sing along as you read it, why not????) and to check out Randy Travis’ early stuff on their own. This one is one of my favorites of his. It was written by Don Schlitz and Paul Overstreet. Randy has a wonderful voice, and its silly of me to release my own recording of it, but it came out OK, if you can ignore the singing and some of the playing.  Click play to hear

  1. I’m still hoping someday Randy will record some of Hank Snow’s old sadness and disaster songs. When I was working construction on his place here in Santa Fe, I pointed him towards “When tragedy struck” – a collection of Hank Snow’s songs from early days.

    His voice and sense of drama would rock on some of those.
