Since the death of George Jones Randy Travis has become the authentic voice of Country Music. On this Album he covers hit songs by singers who have influenced him the most thus each song is a double hit with the obvious overtones of the original recording imbued with that distinctive voice and interpretation. All of the songs are superlative but without doubt one song sticks in my memory as something really special and that song is "Dont worry about me" a song that was truly Marty Robbins best and there were plenty that Randy could have chosen from.He pays tribute to Hank Williams with "Mind your own business", to Jimmie Rodgers with "California Blues" and to George Jones with"Tonight I am playing possum" the most appropiate song on the album. I note that this is volume two but I cannot track down Volume 1 anywhere! Why?

This is our second Randy Travis c.d. and it is as good as the first one. Randy is very much in the same field as George Straight and Alan Jackson and a very good country singer. Delivery was also excellent.

By Angel Delta TOP 1000 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on 20 Aug. 2014
Format: Audio CD
For me, one of the most satisfying aspects of 21st century country music is to hear neo-traditionalist sing the songs that influenced them and sound as though they are having a good time doing so. Volume 2 of Randy Travis' "Influences: The Man I Am" certainly does that for me and he returns with twelve covers and an original that fit his style like an old pair of slippers.

This time there is a lot less Merle Haggard but a stellar gathering of 20th century greats including Ernest Tubb, Lefty Frizzell, Marty Robbins, Hank Williams, Jimmy Rodgers, Waylon Jennings and Kris Kristofferson.

Given the vintage of most of the tunes it is to Randy's great credit that they don't sound old and tired but classic examples of how new light shines through old windows. Vern Gosdin's "Set 'em Up Joe" and Hank Snow's "Movin' On" have rarely sounded better while Marty Robbins' "Don't Worry 'bout Me" suffused with steel guitar, fiddle and piano is more sombre than the original but just as satisfying.

Travis has a particular way with slow numbers and he delivers Frizzell's "That's The Way Love Goes" and Kristofferson's "For The Good Times" with plaintive and intimate readings that command attention.

It is surprising that as with Volume 1 this album also closes with the new Keith Gattis song "Tonight I'm Playin' Possum" a tribute to George Jones who died last year:

"I'm gonna need a strong one
It's gonna be a long one
In case you hadn't heard
He stopped loving her today".

But it's a handsome tribute and the epitome of traditional country music. George would have approved.

Produced by longtime collaborator Kyle Lehning there are no surprises on this album as Travis acknowledges the influences of the music he loves with disarming ease and affection.
