Avett Brothers & Randy Travis–Three Wood Crosses

Indie-folk-pop is the best description of The Avett Brothers, who hail out of North Carolina. They’ve got a style and sound that is their very own.

They are not as well known yet in the country music business, although they did have a number 16 showing on the billboard album charts in 2009, with ‘I and Love and You.’ And how they managed to play with country star, Randy Travis, is beyond me, I mean with Randy’s latest problems with the law and his affinity for substances, which he is getting some help with.

Personally, regardless of his recent stumbles I still love Travis’s music. And every time we play one of his songs I’m reminded of Grammie Peg from Pittsfield, Maine, once one of Q-106.5′s most ardent fans–we lost her back in 1998 to heart failure. Grammie Peg was an active fan club member for Randy Travis, and would always call up and thank us for playing one of his songs. And on a side note, we sure like the birthday cakes she sent our way; she knew the birthdays of all the Q-106.5 air staff.

Even after all the trouble that Travis has been in, I know that Grammie Peg would point to the ‘Three Wooden Crosses’ song by Randy. She would say, “It’s all about forgiveness, Nelson.”And she would be right.

The Avett Brothers sure did the song justice along side Randy Travis recently. Give it a listen and share your comments.
