The guest list for the February 8th tribute concert to Randy Travis continues to grow, with a fresh round of performers announced to the lineup.
Wynonna, Alison Krauss, Neal McCoy, Phil Vassar, Merle Haggard’s song Ben and comic Jeff Foxworthy have all been added to the show, titled “One Night, One Place, One Time: A Heroes and Friends Tribute to Randy Travis.”
Wynonna, Krauss and company join previously announced performers Kenny Rogers, Alabama, Jamey Johnson, Travis Tritt, Kane Brown, Scotty McCreery and Josh Turner, among others.
Travis, one of country music’s most dynamic vocalists, suffered a devastating stroke in the summer of 2013, but since then he has made great gains in his recovery, appearing onstage, in music videos and even singing a few bars of “Amazing Grace” during his induction into the Country Music Hall of Fame in October.
The concert, held at Nashville’s Bridgestone Arena, will honor Travis’ legacy and celebrate his return, as well as benefit the Randy Travis Foundation, a non-profit that raises money for stroke research and rehabilitation.
