The life and career of Randy Travis will be honored with an all-star tribute. The Country Music Hall of Fame member will be celebrated with A Heroes & Friends Tribute to Randy Travis – 1 Night, 1 Place, 1 Time concert event, taking place at Von Braun Center’s Propst Arena in Huntsville, Alabama on Tuesday, October 24, 2023 at 7:00 PM.
“It is such a pleasure to have even a small part in an event that celebrates the accomplished life and career of Randy Travis,” David Lower, Booking Manager at Outback Presents, says. “The fans in Huntsville have such a love of country music and have been so supportive of the artists we have brought to town. This is sure to be another sold-out concert!”
“We are thrilled to be able to come to Huntsville, Alabama for our A Heroes & Friends Tribute to Randy Travis. This will be an unforgettable night with many of Randy’s superstar friends singing his biggest hits,” adds Tony Conway, manager for Randy Travis. “One night, One place, One time. Be sure to attend this very special concert with Randy Travis.”
It’s been ten years since the “Three Wooden Crosses” singer was diagnosed with viral cardiomyopathy, which was followed by a massive stroke three days later, rendering him unable to sing anymore, or speak articulately. Although devastating, Travis’ wife, Mary, whom he wed in 2015, holds on to hope that he still has a future in country music.
“He doesn’t think so,” Mary told the Charlotte Observer. “But I never give up hope on that. Every day, there’s a new word, there’s a new response that lets us know that that brain is still rewiring. And every stroke is different. I mean, there’s so many brain cells and synapses and all those things that of course we don’t understand. Only God knows those things. We don’t know if one day it will all of a sudden come back — and it may, I’ve heard of that — or if it’s just little by little and his confidence comes back. I don’t know.
“Like I said, every one of them is different, and every one of them affects the person differently,” she added. “So we just keep hoping and praying, keep working at it. If it doesn’t come back all the way, then we’re OK with that, too. We’re content with where we are if this is it. And if it does, then glory be — it’ll be wonderful.”
