Looking back on Randy Travis’s first appearance at the Grand Ole Opry performing “I’m So Lonesome I Could Cry.”
Randy sings this with as much feeling in his voice as Hank did! Love them both equally! Thank you for sharing on Facebook! I shall share also.
“I’m So Lonesome I Could Cry” is a song written and originally recorded by American country music singer-songwriter Hank Williams Sr. in 1949. The song has been covered by many artists over the years, including Randy Travis.
Randy Travis recorded a cover version of “I’m So Lonesome I Could Cry” for his 1989 album “No Holdin’ Back.” Travis’ version of the song features his signature baritone voice and a traditional country instrumentation. His cover version was well-received by both fans and critics and helped to solidify his reputation as one of the leading artists in country music.
The song itself is a powerful ballad that explores the themes of loneliness and heartbreak. Williams’ original version is widely regarded as a classic of country music and has been covered by many other artists over the years, including Elvis Presley, Johnny Cash, and Bob Dylan, among others.
