I couldn't help but think of this song in light of Randy Travis's efforts to block release of his nekky arrest video.  Sort of think it would be funny to hum a few bars to him.   Monkey Devil!

Randy Travis Says He and George Jones Had a Lot in Common
June 28, 2013

Randy Travis delivered one of the standout performances at George Jones‘ funeral, and he’s just released a new single, ‘Tonight I’m Playin’ Possum,’ as a tribute to the iconic singer. In a new interview, Travis says he had a lot in common with Jones, both musically and otherwise.

“Both of us are obviously just country boys who came up through years of playing at nightclubs before actually having a record deal,’ Travis tells the Chicago Sun-Times. “We were both, no doubt, traditionalists all the way through. And I learned so much about singing from George Jones just by listening to him. There was a stretch of years where every hit he had, I was learning them to sing in clubs.”

That’s not all they had in common. Jones’ penchant for alcohol and erratic behavior was almost as much a part of his legend as his music, earning him headlines again and again over the course of decades. Travis has often admitted to a troubled youth that included drugs and alcohol, arrests and fights, and after decades of sobriety he slipped in recent years, resulting in a series of arrests and public embarrassments that trace back to alcohol.
 
That journey back includes a new album that Travis will release later this year. ‘Tonight I’m Playin’ Possum’ is the advance single from that project.

“I had a request through Warner Brothers to record the song as a tribute to George Jones, and after listening to it, I wanted to very much,” Travis says. “It’s just a wonderful piece of writing. And what I wanted to accomplish by doing it is simply what it is — a tribute to George. Many people in this business will say that he’s the greatest country singer that ever lived, and I agree. I thought a lot of him.”

Monday, Jul 8, 2013  |  Updated 5:02 PM CDT

Country singer Randy Travis has been admitted to a Texas hospital and is listed in critical condition, according to his public relations firm.

The six-time Grammy winner is suffering from complications of recently acquired viral cardiomyopathy.

"Cardiomyopathy is the term for any disease of the heart muscle that interferes with the heart’s ability to pump blood with sufficient force," according to Johns Hopkins Medicine. Travis' condition, which is viral, was caused by an infection in the heart.

54-year-old Travis was admitted to the hospital on Sunday

Randy Travis undergoes heart surgery

Brian Mansfield, Special for USA TODAY 7:17 p.m. EDT July 8, 2013

The country singer suffers from viral cardiomyopathy.

 



UPDATE: Randy Travis' sister-in-law Teresa Traywick released a statement about the singer's condition.

"We have been told he has had surgery. Our prayers are going out to him because my husband just had a heart attack last year, so it is in their family. Their mother passed away at an early age with her heart, so it is like these boys are following right in their footsteps. My prayers are with them. That's all I can say right now."

ME: Elizabeth Travis would grow a vegetable garden and cook fresh veggies for RT, I guess this makes sense on why she was so health conscience for Randy. Sad

Good news!  He's been a stinker at times, but I didn't want anything to happen to him.  I hope Randy has cleaned up and gets on a good health regimin and stays on it.  It appears others in his life tried to help him.  From what I've read here (thank you, seahorse) Elizabeth Travis tried to help him, with nutritious meals etc.  Maybe he had to have this big scare in his life for the message to get through.  Hitting the bottom before coming back up?  Anyway, I hope Randy improves and makes some more great music.

Publicist: Randy Travis suffers stroke in hospital
Singer was hospitalized on Monday

July 10, 2013

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — The publicist for Randy Travis says the country music singer has suffered a stroke in a Texas hospital.

Publicist Kirt Webster said Wednesday night that the 54-year-old Travis suffered the stroke while he was being treated for congestive heart failure because of a viral illness.

Webster said Travis was undergoing surgery Wednesday night to relieve pressure on his brain. He has been in critical condition.

Doctors said earlier Wednesday that Travis was in good health until three weeks before he was hospitalized, when he contracted a viral upper respiratory infection.

The viral illness led to a weakened heart muscle that eventually worsened into heart failure.

Travis was taken to the emergency room on Sunday. The singer underwent a procedure to have a pump inserted by catheter that helps increase blood flow.

Randy Travis Suffers a Stroke
July 10, 2013

Randy Travis has suffered a stroke. Reports issued early Wednesday (July 10) indicated that the singer’s condition was improving. But by nightfall, he was rushed into surgery to relieve pressure on his brain after suffering the stroke.

The singer’s medical woes over the past week have been well-documented, with his publicity team keeping both the media and Travis’ fans abreast of how he is doing via informative press releases, even including a conference video from his team of doctors. The medical staff explained that Travis was suffering from congestive heart failure after being admitted to a McKinney, Texas hospital on Sunday, and that he has since been transferred to Baylor’s best heart facility to receive specialized care.

The stroke was apparently a complication of his congestive heart failure. Travis was in surgery as of 9:30PM ET on Wednesday. He remains in critical condition.
