Anniversary Celebration

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Stephen Thomas Erlewine
To celebrate his 25th anniversary -- marked from the 1986 release of his major-label debut Storms of Life, not his independent 1978 release under the name Randy Traywick -- Randy Travis rounded up a bunch of stars to cut duets of his biggest hits. Apart from Broadway dynamo Kristin Chenoweth appearing out of nowhere on "Love Looks Good on You," there are no big surprises either in song selection, duet partners, or arrangements; sure, Zac Brown brings "Forever and Ever, Amen" into James Taylor territory, but that's a marginal move, offset by straightforward readings of "Diggin' Up Bones" with John Anderson, Alan Jackson popping up for a medley of "Better Class of...
