Since the debut of his first album '1982' over a quarter-century ago, the remarkable Randy Travis has managed to place 22 records at the top of the Billboard charts. But the two-decade Grand Ole Opry member isn't content to rest on his laurels as one of country music's most celebrated icons.
"Doing the best quality work that I can do ... those things matter to me, but I don't give a whole lot of thought to my musical legacy," he said. "Hopefully I'll keep (creating it) for a few years yet."
As he continues to celebrate his silver anniversary as a performer and a songwriter, Travis sat down with Billboard editorial director Bill Werde ( @bwerde) for a conversation that delved into his latest tour, as well as his 2011 '25th Anniversary Celebration' album, which features Travis revisiting his most cherished hits with the help of contmporary country stars such as the Zac Brown Band, Carrie Underwood and Kenny Chesney.
