All-Star Acts Coming Together for Randy Travis Tribute Show
An all-star cast is assembling for a Randy Travis tribute concert, set to take place in early 2017. Alabama, Kenny Rogers and many, many more will come together in February for 1 Night. 1 Place. 1 Time: A Heroes & Friends Tribute to Randy Travis.
Set to take place on Feb. 8 at Bridgestone Arena, the Travis tribute event will, in addition to Alabama and Rogers, feature Rodney Atkins, Chris Janson, Jamey Johnson, Montgomery Gentry, Michael Ray, Ricky Skaggs, Michael W. Smith, the Randy Travis Band, Tanya Tucker, Josh Turner and more artists to be announced. 1 Night. 1 Place. 1 Time. is being produced by Travis' wife Mary, along with Conway Entertainment Group's Tony Conway, Outback Concerts of Tennessee, Inc.'s Mike Smardak and Webster and Associates' Kirt Webster.
"It’s amazing to see the support that Randy has received from the music industry since his stroke," says Conway, who is Travis' manager and who is also the show's promoter. "We’re thrilled to have all of these artists come out and pay tribute to him."
Tickets for 1 Night. 1 Place. 1 Time: A Heroes & Friends Tribute to Randy Travis will go on sale on Dec. 9 at 11AM CT. A portion of the proceeds will benefit the Randy Travis Foundation, a non-profit organization that raises money for stroke research and rehabilitation.
Since his stroke in 2013, Travis has been largely unable to speak (or sing); however, at a private funeral in early February and his Country Music Hall of Fame induction in mid-October, Travis surprised those in attendance by singing a bit of "Amazing Grace." He also took part in the opening medley at the 2016 CMA Awards, and has made numerous appearances at concerts and other events.
