It has been years since Randy Travis’ stroke and he just shared an update that has us all emotional.
When Randy Travis suffered a massive stroke in 2013 we weren’t sure that he was going to live through it. Not only that, but from the looks of it he was never going to be able to walk, talk or sing ever again.
Travis has beat the odds though and he continues to get better and better everyday. He still has trouble walking and speaking but he has continued to make appearances and has even sang at one of them leaving the entire audience in tears.
Although he hasn’t been able to get back out on the stage and sing and perform for his fans, the country community has surrounded him with open arms. Randy has not walked alone through any of this and just to prove it the community has set up a concert to honor him in the highest way.
The concert is scheduled for Feb. 8 at Bridgestone Arena in Nashville and it is all for Travis and the legacy he is leaving. Over two dozen artists are scheduled to perform at the event and it is absolutely breathtaking to see them unite like this for a fellow artist.
Just to name a few Wynonna Judd, Phil Vassar, Alison Krauss, Neal McCoy, Ben Haggard and comedian Jeff Foxworthy will all be on hand to celebrate Travis at 1 Night. 1 Place. 1 Time: A Heroes and Friends Tribute to Randy Travis.
The purpose of the concert is to help raise funds for the Randy Travis Foundation. For those of you whoa aren’t aware of what the Randy Travis Foundation is, it is a organization that supports stroke research and rehabilitation – which is clearly something very close to his heart.
The line up continues to grow with legendary artists and now Kane Brown and Scotty McCreery to legends such as Alabama and Kenny Rogers will all be performing at the concert. Travis’ manager, Tony Conway, spoke of the concert in a press release saying they were extremely overwhelmed.
“Randy and Mary Travis and I are extremely overwhelmed with the artists that are lending their talents for this special night,” says Travis’ manager, Tony Conway, in a press release. “Once they found out that Randy needed help to fund the Randy Travis Foundation, everyone started calling. This will only be one night, one time and one place and will never happen again,” adds Conway. “Almost 30 artists have confirmed so far. They will perform with Randy’s band as well as join Randy in his first public performance since his life-altering stroke. We are prepared for there not to be a dry eye in the house.”
Wow! This is so amazing! This is what country music is all about, Y’all!
