Randy Travis Attends Joe Nichols Concert

Country Legend Meets “Yeah” Singer at Billy Bob’s Texas

Although health troubles have kept him out of the spotlight all year, Randy Travis made a surprise appearance at a Joe Nichols concert at Billy Bob’s Texas in Fort Worth on Saturday night (Nov. 22).

Travis did not sing, but Nichols performed the legend’s song “Promises” in his honor. Travis watched the performance from the side of the stage. Nichols’ duet with Travis, “Tonight I’m Playin’ Possum,” was included on Travis’ 2013 album, Influence Vol. 1: The Man I Am.

This is only one of a handful of public appearances Travis has made since recovering from a 2013 stroke. In July, he attended a Dolly Parton concert in Oklahoma.
