Let's take a moment to praise the fact that Randy Travis is back on country radio for the first time in - in too damn long, that's how long. "Three Wooden Crosses" is taken from his latest (mostly) Christian country album, Rise & Shine, but it's not even remotely preachy. Actually, it reminds me of his classic story songs like "On the Other Hand." And it includes the word "hooker." But most importantly, it's a song about basic human values, is obviously a sincere song from Randy, is sounds just like all of his best work, traditional C&W. And it just went top 10 on the country singles chart! Hallelujah.
