Randy Travis Releases ‘Don’t Worry ‘Bout Me’ Video
Randy Travis has released the video for the debut single, ‘Don’t Worry ‘Bout Me,’ from his upcoming ‘Influence, Vol. 2: The Man I Am’ record.
Travis, who reportedly recorded the tracks for his latest album before his illness and surgery in 2013, does not appear in the video. Instead, it shows a woman walking through a field of sunflowers, to the backdrop of the singer’s flawless vocals.
The song is a classic that has been recorded by more than a dozen artists, including Marty Robbins, Doris Day, Ella Fitzgerald and Frank Sinatra. Other hit tunes on the record include Vern Gosdin‘s ‘Set ‘Em Up Joe,’ Kris Kristofferson‘s ‘Sunday Morning Coming Down’ and ‘Only Daddy That’ll Walk the Line’ by Waylon Jennings.
“We had such a great time putting together ‘Influence Vol. 1,’ but there were still so many musical heroes of yesteryear that I learned from and wanted to honor,” Travis notes. “We had no choice but to release a second volume. The ‘Influence’ that the older, great ones had on me, and the ‘Influence’ that I may, somehow, have on the ones that come along after me, is God’s way of allowing us to pay it forward. It is my prayer answered — and, His will done — it is what makes me ‘the man I am.’”
‘Influence, Vol. 2: The Man I Am’ will be available on Aug. 12. ‘Don’t Worry ‘Bout Me’ is available for instant download to fans who pre-order the record, along with ‘Only Daddy That’ll Walk the Line’ and ‘Tonight I’m Playing Possum.’
