What can you tell me about Randy Travis? Is he still making albums?
—Doyle H., Tennessee

He sure is. His current album, Passing Through, comes on the heels of his gospel CD Rise and Shine. The latter contained the hit Three Wooden Crosses, which earned a Grammy and the Country Music Association's Song of the Year award. "I've had one foot in Christian music and the other in country music for the past several years," Travis says. The entertainer, who is married to his manager, Lib Hatcher, also performs music ministry work, which he says has "been like another career, though I love the country shows, too." His next album, Glory Train, contains selections recorded in the 1940s by Sister Rosetta Thorpe (one of Elvis Presley's inspirations) and debuts Oct. 3.
