She also revealed what Kyle Lehning, Randy’s career-long producer, once stated about the country singer. “‘Randy sings songs that people don’t know that they need to hear until they hear it.’ The great songs that any of the great artists sing are songs that make you feel like you’re reading the Bible.”
