Randy Travis Talks Carrie Underwood, Alan Jackson, Ray Price and 25 Years In Country Music

You’ve had a lot of success working with Carrie Underwood. ‘Is It Still Over?’ is your second duet together. If we rewind a little bit, we all know you did the Grammy Award winning ‘I Told You So’ together on ‘American Idol’. How did your friendship with Carrie begin?
I know when I saw her first. [It] was playing a show with her out in California. She called and asked if she could record ‘I Told You So.’ I thought that was funny because you know, everyone listening to us may not, but if a song is written, copywritten, and published, anyone can record it. You and I can go find any song that’s copywritten, published, put it down and ask nobody. That’s just the way that works. So, the fact that she made it a point to call and ask, I was shocked by that and my comment was, “Oh yeah, you can do that! I got several hundred other songs in a publishing company over there and you can have anything in that you want.”

Adam Levine Interview: Maroon 5 Frontman Talks New NBC Show, ‘The Voice’ & Tea

Recently, in a cover story for Out Magazine, the winning “Voice” coach Levine ripped the reigning champ of reality television, “American Idol, ” calling them out for their alleged policy on gay contestants.

“I’m not a fan of singing competitions, ” admits Levine. “I never have been. But there was something that rang true with ‘The Voice.’ It’s just a very sincere, honest show where we were allowed to speak our minds and be ourselves and help people along–in a real way. No one is being teased; no one is being mocked. It’s all about positive reinforcement. We’re dealing with a bunch of people who are all really talented to begin with.”
