Book Review: “Forever and Ever, Amen: A Memoir of Music, Faith, and Braving the Storms of Life” by Randy Travis with Ken Abraham.

Hey it’s Jeremy and I’m here with my first review. As a country fan, I spend a lot of my free time listening to music and reading, immersing myself in the genre. So I am excited to share my thoughts on things here with you! But before we get started, let me share something. I believe art of all forms is 100% subjective. Therefore, I won’t be assigning ratings, or try to tell you what’s good or bad. I’m just gonna share my thoughts and let you take it from there!

That being said, from the very first sentence, the story of Randy Travis completely captivated me. Being in my mid-30s, I’ll admit I wasn’t very knowledgeable about the backstory of Randy Travis. From his childhood all the way to his greatest success, this book covers it all in great detail. From tragedy that breaks your heart like he’s a long lost friend, to tears of joy when he describes the milestones of his recent recovery. This book takes you along for the ride, and much like the way your heart felt the first time you heard “Three Wooden Crosses”, you’ll feel these words. If you have singular ounce of country in your soul, take a rainy summer night and pick this book up. Yes, I said “a” night…because trust me, you won’t be able to put it down.
