Legends and mutual friends will come together for one night only in Nashville to celebrate the life and music of Randy Travis. The concert, billed as “1 Night. 1 Place. 1 Time: A Heroes & Friends Tribute to Randy Travis,” will take place Feb. 8 at Nashville’s Bridgestone Arena.
The initial lineup includes performances Alabama, Kenny Rogers, Rodney Atkins, Chris Janson, Jamey Johnson, Montgomery Gentry, Michael Ray, Ricky Skaggs, Michael W. Smith, the Randy Travis Band, Tanya Tucker and Josh Turner. Additional performers will be announced in the coming weeks.
A portion of the proceeds will support stroke research and rehabilitation through the country legend’s nonprofit Randy Travis Foundation. In 2013, Travis suffered a massive stroke that nearly killed him and hospitalized him for more than five months.
Since then, Travis has made miraculous strides in his recovery. Toward the end of his Country Music Hall of Fame induction in October, Travis astounded the audience when he sang the chorus to “Amazing Grace.” He also sang the famous tagline to “Forever and Ever, Amen” during the 50th annual CMA Awards’ opening number in November.
Tickets for the all-star tribute go on sale Friday (Dec. 9) through Ticketmaster and the Bridgestone Arena box office.
