Item description for Forever and Ever, Amen by Paul Overstreet & Randy Travis...
Overview This is a collection of the heartwarming stories behind the music of Paul Overstreet.
Publishers Description Seldom has an American Country musician changed the face and tenor of the modern-day genre with as much impact as has Paul Overstreet-the humble songwriter who chose to stop writing songs about misery and start writing songs that affirm family, the joys of marriage, staying faithful and finding happiness, and honoring your parents. These songs have gone on to become huge hits for Country artists such as Randy Travis, Tanya Tucker, Paul Davis, and the Judds. In his own words- and with the voluble agreement of his hundreds of fans, who wrote e-mails to his website- Paul tells how he was inspired to write such hits as "I Fell in Love Again Last Night," "Same Ole Me," "Forever and Ever, Amen," "Heroes," "On the Other Hand," "Sowin' Love," " Til the Mountains Disappear," "When You Say Nothing at All," and so many others. Forever and Ever, Amen is a celebration of a life once lost, now found- and a man who has written songs that have touched so many others in their everyday lives.

Good Book for a Light Read Mar 7, 2007
This was a good book for some light reading. Nothing deep, but good backstories for some of Paul Overstreet's best songs. The included Video CD (plays in any DVD player) had some great material on it too. I ended up re-selling the book after I read it, but for a die-hard fan it would be a keeper. I miss Paul... he had some great songs. Hopefully he'll come back to the musical scene someday. He could do some great duets with someone like Randy Travis. (Hint, hint, Paul... are you listening?)
Inspiring and Uplifting Jun 19, 2001
Paul dives right into the middle of the real world Christian experience, as he shares with the reader the stories behind his family centered songs. He shares the personal journey of his growth in Christ and his growth as a songwriter and performer. The personal accounts of how Paul's songs have affected others show how God can work through, not only His Word, but through the songs of those that love Him. This short book was uplifting and inspirational. It gave new meaning to songs that I have loved. The DVD that is included gives a great visual and audio experience into some of Paul's songs. I am a better person for reading this book. Thanks Paul!!!!
Not A Country Music Fan But ... May 30, 2001
Right up front, I'm not a big fan of Country music, so I wasn't sure I'd find much of interest here. But Paul Overstreet is as real as they get, as human and likeable and authentic as anyone else I know, and that crosses music-taste lines. Often how he wrote a song seems disconnected to how the fans reacted to it, but then, that's life too -- everyone sees something different in the same picture. He certainly has a distinct "flavor" to his music, and when you hear him sing one of his songs made popular by another artist, it adds new dimension. A heart-warming book!
