The Texas Trust CU Theatre in Grand Prairie will be the location of a Texas Heroes & Friends Tribute to Randy Travis, which will take place on Wednesday at seven o’clock.
During a recent interview with Randy Travis and his wife Mary for CBS News Texas, the upcoming event was the topic of conversation.”We’re going to have a kick-in-the-pants kind of time,” according to Mary. We are going to act as if someone has left the gate open all by themselves. Have a great time!” As an additional point of interest, she mentioned that they desired to have the show in Texas because it is “where we live, that’s where we love.”
A wide variety of local and national performers will be there to display their talents by singing and covering Travis’ songs. These performers will come from all around the country. Additionally, despite the fact that it is being marketed as an homage to the great musician Randy Travis, the event will also serve as a benefit for the Randy Travis Foundation. Following the stroke that he experienced in 2013, Travis was left with aphasia and right-sided paralysis of his body. As a consequence of the event, he was unable to communicate verbally. Increasing people’s awareness about strokes is the primary focus of the majority of the efforts that his foundation undertakes.
“Fortunately, we have survived that, and we have a wonderful life and a wonderful opportunity to share with people what we have learned from the experience about strokes, stroke awareness and preventing strokes,” according to the woman. The singer-songwriter Paul Overstreet, who is located in Nashville and has been a close friend of Travis throughout his whole working life, will be one of the musicians who will be playing at the show.
Furthermore, he is a co-writer on a number of Travis’s successful songs, including “Forever and Ever Amen,” amongst other songs produced by Travis. Overstreet has been a contributor to the writing of a number of Travis’s successful songs, including “Forever and Ever, Amen.” The singer remarked that “he recorded those songs and made them huge,” and he was right. Indeed, he has been of considerable assistance to us in many ways.I couldn’t contain my excitement when I found out that I would be called to perform for his organization after receiving the invitation to do so.
