In 1963, Buck Owens topped the country charts with 'Act Naturally,' which opened with the prophetic line, "They're gonna put me in the movies." But decades before that tune (later covered by the Beatles) was a hit, country stars were already trading the concert stage for the sound stage.
28 years ago today, on July 26, 1986, Randy Travis was undoubtedly doing plenty of celebrating. It was on this day that the singer earned his first No. 1 single, for 'On the Other Hand,' from his freshman 'Storms of Life' album.
Randy Travis' health remains in question, with some saying he is still unable to speak. But regardless of his physical condition, the singer is feeling well enough to release 'Influence Vol. 2: The Man I Am' next month.
Randy Travis' songs are timeless, and the singer is one of the most important country music artists of his generation. His 1986 debut, 'Storms of Life,' helped touch off the neo-traditionalist movement that brought Nashville back to its true country roots in the '80s.
