Randy Travis to appear in Lifetime’s “Christmas on the Bayou” December 14


Before all his major life-changing health issues this summer, Randy Travis did some acting – something he has done quite often over the years. 

This weekend one of his movies is set to air. 

Travis, who portrays local store owner Mr. Greenhall, joins One Tree Hill alums Hilarie Burton and Tyler Hilton for "Christmas On The Bayou," which is set to premiere on Saturday, December 14, at 8 pm ET/PT on Lifetime. 

From the synopsis: When successful New York marketing executive Katherine (BURTON) discovers her workaholic ways are taking a toll on her eight-year-old son, Zac, she decides to spend Christmas with him and her mother, Lilly (MARKIE POST) in her home town on the bayou.  When Caleb (HILTON) tries to rekindle a childhood romance and convince her to move back home, Katherine is torn between the bright lights of the big city and the quiet, gentler rhythms of her Southern roots.  Only a Christmas miracle orchestrated by Papa Noel (ED ASNER) can steer her heart to her true home.

It'll be great to see Randy on television once again.

On a side note, when I read about this movie, I went digging around to see if I could find any health updates on the singer. It's strange how quiet his people have been about his recovery process. Once Randy was released to rehab to try and recover from his multiple health problems this summer, the updates from his camp basically stopped. We've heard from some of his friends and his father's been talking to the National Enquirer, but other than hearing that Randy's possibly partially paralyzed and will possibly never perform again, there's been nothing official. 

Hopefully he's still on the road to recovery. I'm pretty sure fans are still keeping him in their prayers.
