Randy Travis’ “Forever and Ever, Amen” will always have a special place in every country music fans’ heart. Well, there’s no doubt to that as it’s almost impossible not to fall in love with its sweet melody and romantic lyrics.
Written by Nashville award-winning songwriters Paul Overstreet and Don Schlitz, the love song was released in 1987 as the lead single off Travis’ second studio album, Always & Forever. It was then heavily lauded in the country community, quickly climbing atop Billboard’s Hot Country Singles charts. Not only that, but it also took home a Grammy Award for Best Country & Western Song and earned the title of Song of the Year on both the ACM and CMA Awards.
