Kane Brown has idolized Country Music Hall Of Famer Randy Travis all of his life and that has come full circle as he went from being his hero to becoming his friend.
The country superstar paid tribute to his longtime Idol with a stunning performance of Travis’ song “Three Wooden Crosses” accompanied by his guitarist Alex Anthony who played Travis’s Gibson J-185KOA guitar that Travis has played onstage many of times. On the back of the Travis’ guitar is a photo of his hero George Jones.
“It’s an awesome feeling being in the Country Music Hall Of Fame singing Randy Travis’ song, especially beside his guitar,” Brown said. “I love you Randy, you’re the guy.”
“Three Wooden Crosses” is a song written by Kim Williams and Doug Johnson, and recorded by Randy Travis. It was released in November 2002 from his album, Rise and Shine. The song became Travis’ 16th No. 1 single.
