"Three Wooden Crosses" - Released in 2002 during his gospel period, this song returned Travis to the top of the charts after a nine-year absence. The song's narrator refers to three crosses seen alongside the road and tells the story of a crash survivor. Travis opens the song by singing, "A farmer and a teacher, a hooker and a preacher, riding on a midnight bus bound for Mexico ... " and it unfolds like a heartbreaking mystery. The song won the Country Music Association's song of the year award and a Dove Award as well.

"Forever and Ever, Amen" - Driven by a subtle but bouncy bass line, this love song is told from the perspective of a free spirit trying to convince the woman he loves that he's ready to settle down. "I'm gonna love you forever and ever/forever and ever, amen," Travis sings in his mellow baritone on the chorus, and by the end of the song he's got you convinced. Released in 1987, the song was Travis' third No. 1 and won the Grammy Award for best country & western song and the Academy of Country Music's song of the year.
