Back in March, I filled you all in on Randy Travis's plans to release an all-star duets album to commemorate 25 years in the biz. Titled Anniversary Celebration, the set sounded as if it was destined to be pretty danged cool--a bunch of collabs with a truly mindboggling roster of country artists both old and new.
Well, now you don't have to take my opinion or anyone else's on the matter--you can preview the entire album for yourself right now at Travis's official site! All you have to do is click here and enter your email address. You'll receive a confirmation message directing to your own personal listening party. You can hear all 17 tracks for free up until the actual release date of the album, which is June 7.
But, if you are, indeed, wondering my opinion (hey! Thanks!)--all the duets are super-good listening. However, I especially enjoyed "Love Looks Good On You" with Kristin Chenoweth (she sounds fine singing country), "T.I.M.E" featuring Josh Turner (Travis and Turner's voices couldn't be more different, yet play off each other interestingly), "Is It Still Over" with Carrie Underwood (just plain great)...and most of all "Road To Surrender" with the amazing Kris Kristofferson (no explanation needed).
Have a listen and tell me which ones were your favorites!
As always, be sure to:
