This year, Warner Music Nashville and YouTube teamed up to bring Travis’ recently released “More Life” documentary to the platform in a seven-part series that is available to stream now and has amassed 145,000 views. “More Life” started as an intimate concert special in 2011 to honor the 25th anniversary of Randy Travis’ iconic album Storms of Life. Many didn’t know how important this documentary would become. As the film was being finalized in 2013, Randy unexpectedly became ill and suffered a massive stroke, making him unable to perform and severely limiting his speech due to aphasia. The film touches on his storied career, envelopes the final professionally filmed live performance from the man and inspires with his story of healing, redemption and faith. It was directed and produced by Shaun Silva and Tacklebox Films with WMN’s Shane Tarleton and Mike Dupree serving as executive producers. Additionally, the full documentary is now available for purchase on iTunes. Both links here: https://wmna.sh/morelife.
