Good to hear, and despite mixed opinions on his music (mostly the most recent output), this is for a good cause, and I respect that and him for doing it.

I guess that's a decent fallback position when you realize you can't make music.
Uh, wow. Don't be a prick.

I wanna make a joke, but I won't. Good for you, Travis. Not a fan of his music, but it's always good to see musicians take action in ways like these.

it's always excellent when such inspiring and motivational people are able to apply themselves in other areas to help make a difference. also, to whomever said this was a "fallback" for him...Gym Class has had multiple radio singles...what can you possibly be referring to?

EDIT: also, if I'm not mistaken Travis recently singed a solo deal with T-Pain's label, Nappy Boy Entertainment.

First step to prevent acquiring HIV: do not sleep with Katy Perry.
