Country Music Hall of Fame icon Randy Travis was recently been presented six Telly Awards for his critically-acclaimed documentary, More Life, released early this year, traces the faith, music and life of Travis.
"Producing More Life has been a labor of love for the past eleven years. Having the documentary released to the world, and received with such accolades, feels so right. Randy Travis is the cornerstone of Warner Music Nashville and we are honored and thrilled to help tell his story with 'More Life,'" said Shane Tarleton, EVP, Artist Development, Warner Music Nashville.
"Though this documentary began as a 25th Anniversary special, it quickly pivoted into a chronicled celebration of life's setups and setbacks, after my massive stroke in 2013," says Randy Travis about the film. "The planned few months of composing, turned into 10 years-Mary and I thank the perseverance and patience of the wonderful team that waited and believed in it until completion...the ones that care and protect the legacy of my music."
One of the features that makes the film remarkable is that it captures Travis in the final moments of his career right before the stroke. Hours of performances and interviews were collected, including the last footage of Randy Travis performing signature hits such as "Deeper Than The Holler," Diggin' Up Bones," "Three Wooden Crosses," and some of Randy's last moments before he was impaired by the stroke.
Along with Randy and his wife Mary appearing in the film, Warner Music Nashville executive Martha Sharp who gave Randy his first record deal, Randy's longtime producer Kyle Lehning, as well as Josh Turner appears and performs in the film.
