Randy Travis Tribute Concert Adds Wynonna Judd, Alison Krauss and More
A new set of performers has joined the already impressive lineup for an upcoming tribute concert in honor of Randy Travis. 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.
Scheduled for Feb. 8 at Bridgestone Arena in Nashville, 1 Night. 1 Place. 1 Time. will bring together more than two dozen artists to pay tribute to Travis and help raise funds for the Randy Travis Foundation, which supports stroke research and rehabilitation. The newly added acts join a lineup of performers that includes a diverse range of artists, from newer acts such as Kane Brown and Scotty McCreery to legends such as Alabama and Kenny Rogers.
"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."
Since suffering a stroke in 2013, Travis has been unable to speak or sing, aside from at a private funeral in February of 2016 and at his Country Music Hall of Fame induction that October, at which he surprised the crowds by singing a few bars of "Amazing Grace." The artist also took part in the opening medley at the 2016 CMA Awards, and the 1 Night. 1 Place. 1 Time. press release reports that he will be onstage at the tribute show.
"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."
Tickets for 1 Night. 1 Place. 1 Time: A Heroes and Friends Tribute to Randy Travis are available now.
