After lining up a huge number of top country stars, the one and only legend himself was just announced as a singer during the once-in-a-lifetime performance!
This iconic event and tribute to one of the greatest country music singers ever to have graced the airwaves will take place tomorrow, February 8th 2017, at Nashville’s Bridgestone Arena and feature acts like Alabama, Kenny Rogers, Travis Tritt, Ricky Skaggs, Tanya Tucker, Garth Brooks, and many, many more!
But there had been one question lingering on everyone’s mind: ‘Will Randy Travis Perform?’
In a new interview with The Tennessean, Randy Travis and his wife Mary Davis open up about their plan to surprise everyone at the Country Music Hall of Fame and they each speak out on the rumors of him singing tomorrow.
“I’ll tell ya a story about that [Hall of Fame performance],” Mary Davis said. “Nobody knew we were gonna do that. We didn’t tell anybody….It was between he and I. I didn’t want to set it up and then have him not feel like it that night.”
She continued to tell the publication that she asked Randy if he’d like to sing just moments before their appearance to accept the induction, and he answered with a resounding “yes!”.
After suffering a near career-ending stroke in 2013, doctors thought that Randy would never walk again, let alone sing – but he has been determine to prove them wrong and walking was just the very first step.
After singing a few lines of “Amazing Grace” during his induction to the Country Music Hall of Fame, many people have been hoping for another performance from Randy during this magical tribute concert.
While Randy plays coy with the topic during the interview, interjecting some playful sideline “no” comments in response to the question, his wife, Mary Davis, is more than certain he’s going to want to sing – and Randy just lights up with laughter.
The entire interview is filled with smiles and laughter as they talk about his singing at the Hall of Fame and contemplate singing for tomorrow’s concert.
