Travis' show shallow, sedate
Considering the depth of his catalogue, country music legend Randy Travis turned out a shallow performance Friday night at Buffalo Days.

Oh my, quoting a song from Randy's awesome new CD Around the Bend, it's obvious that "You Didn't Have a Good Time". And that I don't understand. I have been to many, many RT concerts over the past 22 years, 6 already this year and I have always left the venue with such a feeling of awe. Seeing Randy live is like nothing else I have experienced and I leave counting down the days to the next concert. And believe me there are a lot of people out there who feel just the way I do.
I have to disagree with some things the reviewer stated. For one thing, the only songs that Randy abbreviates are the ones in the medley and even those he performs at least one verse and the chorus. Oh, and another thing, the song is Honky Tonk Moon not Honky Tonk Man.
As for wasting time telling jokes, believe me at the concerts I have attended the audience appreciates Randy's sense of humor. Watching him tell the jokes is one of my favorite parts mainly because he gets such a kick out of it. And I love that smile!
Looks and acts older than his years? I don't see that at all. So, he's not jumping around the stage like other so-called country acts. All I want and need is that man and his music. I don't care for any theatrics. And besides, I think he is absolutely beautiful.
If any of you out there are considering going to an RT concert don't let this one review discourage you. Go! You will not regret it.

WE just saw Randy at Freemont, Ohio last night. We thought his show was great like always. We noticed he didn't mensions his wife 5 times, like normal, and we're wondering if anyone knows if they are still together, or if he's living with that Mary Deougher in Texas still. We were too far away to see a wedding ring. This was a shock to us.

I also would like to know where he is. I do no think his managers etc will release any info until his
tours are over.

There was a review of his concert at Pocono Downs and it had a picture of him on stage and his hands
and there was no wedding band on his finger.
