February 8th at the Bridgestone arena in Nashville Country Music is set to Honor one of its biggest stars of all time, Randy Travis! The list of performers includes Josh Turner, Ricky Skaggs, Kenny Rogers, Joe Nichols, Chris Janson, Alabama and Tanya Tucker and more. The Heroes & Friends a Tribute to Randy Travis concert, which is fittingly titled after his 1990 album Heroes and friends will see many of these stars and more perform some of Randy’s biggest hits and thank him for his contribution to Country music.
And what a contribution it has been. Randy Travis is credited with saving Country Music in the mid 80’s and bringing it back to a more traditional base. Since suffering a massive stroke in 2013 Randy Travis has been missed but thankfully he is slowly starting to return to the spotlight.
