Country hall of famer Randy Travis releases decades-old demo, “Fool’s Love Affair”

Country hall of famer Randy Travis releases decades-old demo, “Fool’s Love Affair”

Released on the 35th Anniversary of his first radio single “On The Other Hand,” seven-time GRAMMY Award winning Country artist Randy Travis has released his first song in years, “Fool’s Love Affair.” 

“Fool’s Love Affair” may have been officially released in 2020, but the demo was first recorded in the 1980’s. For years the song sat in storage, until recently when one of the writers, Charlie Monk (who wrote the song with Milton Brown and Keith Stegall) rediscovered it and sent it to Travis and his longtime producer Kyle Lehning. 

Fans of the country music legend will be excited to hear his voice again, as Travis’ and his singing voice have been on the road to recovery since his near fatal stroke in 2013. With the song featuring Travis’ sweet signature Southern sound, “Fool’s Love Affair” is a love song about misbehavior: “It’s a fool’s love affair / And we’re both aware / It’s a game and nobody wins.”  On Travis’ new release Billboard said,“The tone is rich and reedy, the delivery is steady and understated, and the emotion is convincingly resigned.” In this re-imaged demo recording from decades ago, fans will be reunited with the timeless music of Randy Travis.
