A tribute concert honoring legendary artist Randy Travis, dubbed ‘A Texas Heroes & Friends Tribute to Randy Travis – 1 Night, 1 Place, 1 Time; will take place on November 15 at the Texas Trust CU Theatre in Grand Prairie, Texas. Travis is also being honored with A Heroes & Friends Tribute to Randy Travis – 1 Night, 1 Place, 1 Time, taking place on October 24 in Huntsville, Alabama
Travis’ wife Mary said in a press event that the lineup for the newly-announced event will focus more on Texas-based artists, while the Alabama event will feature artists in Nashville.
Tony Conway, Travis’ manager, says: “Randy Travis’ imprint on country music is transcendent and artists who have followed in his footsteps continuously ask how they can pay tribute to and be around him. His light shines bright and he is still a force to be reckoned with as a champion for country music and our community. We have no doubt that Texans will show up in mass to celebrate his indelible career!”
Travis’ wife Mary says it is an honor to have his music celebrated: “Just to know that he made the music that he made and that it stands the test of time. And then to have tributes to you when you can’t sing the music, but somebody else will come in, step in for you, and some of the great artists that do step in, that say, ‘Hey, I want to be one of those that sings your music’ when they have a whole catalog of their own music. But it’s like, ‘I just want to give this time and this energy to singing your music because it made a difference in my life … And so to have a tribute, that just means you did something right. Somewhere along the line that made a difference. And we don’t want to forget that.”
