On July 18, several country music superstars came together to honor the families of the Dallas police officers who were killed during protests a few weeks ago.
The event, called Stars Behind The Stars, featured performances by Tanya Tucker, The Oak Ridge Boys, T.G. Sheppard, Kelly Lang, The Bellamy Brothers, John Conlee and many more.
Following Tucker’s performance, and taking a shot of tequila on stage, she surprised everyone with a very special guest.
“Right now I’d like to introduce someone who is very special to me. And I know he’s very special to you. He’s a wonderful human being and one of greatest singers of all time. Ladies and gentlemen, Mr. Randy Travis!”
The crowd went WILD!
Three years ago, Travis suffered a major stroke and has only made a few public appearances in the years since. He needs assistance walking and is re-learning how to speak.
He walked out from backstage holding his wife, Mary, for support. Tucker greeted him and you can barely hear him say “Thank you” with all the screaming from the audience.
“We love you Randy,” she said. “Texas loves you, always remember that. And I sure do love you.”
They exchanged a friendly kiss, before he said “Bye” and “I love you” to the crowd.
As Travis walked off stage, Tucker sang lyrics to his iconic song “Forever And Ever, Amen” to him.
What an incredible surprise for the people of Dallas to see a legend like Travis. Watch the incredible moment below.
