New Album From The Vault
The icon’s team, along with his wife, Mary Travis, recently held a press conference to affirm the 64-year-old North Carolina native will definitely release a CD of songs. Travis’ upcoming album will be his first collection of new work since 2014’s Influence Vol. 2: The Man I Am, which was recorded before he suffered a stroke a year ago.
“The chances are 100 percent. It’s already been mixed. “Everything’s ready to go by Kyle Lehning, Randy’s producer…” Mary stated when asked whether there was any prospect of more never-before-heard “From the Vault” songs from Travis. “A whole other album of Randy Travis music.”
Randy Travis has not performed on stage or recorded new songs since suffering a stroke in 2013. Despite this, the Country Music Hall of Famer has published a few “From the Vault” tracks in recent years, including “Fools Love Affair,” “One in a Row,” and “Lead Me Home.”
The press conference also included the unveiling of a new show titled A Heroes & Friends Tribute to Randy Travis – One Night, One Place, One Time.
The future event, produced by Outback Presents, will take place later this year at the Von Braun Center Propst Arena in Huntsville, Alabama, and will include an all-star roster, the names of which will be released soon.
The event’s celebrity guests will take the stage to celebrate Travis with live performances of his many number-one singles. In addition, a percentage of the revenues from the concert will benefit the Randy Travis Foundation, which raises awareness for stroke and aphasia victims and promotes music education in schools.
A Heroes & Friends Tribute To Randy Travis Concert
Travis’ upcoming tribute show joins a long list of artists who have paid tribute, including Trace Adkins, Big & Rich, Jamey Johnson, Wynonna Judd, Tracy Lawrence, Lorrie Morgan, The Oak Ridge Boys, Brad Paisley, Travis Tritt, Tanya Tucker, Gretchen Wilson, and more.
“It is such a pleasure to have even a small part in an event that celebrates Randy Travis’ accomplished life and career,” Outback Presents’ Booking Manager, David Lower, stated in a news statement. “The fans in Huntsville love country music and have been very supportive of the musicians we’ve brought to town. This is going to be another sold-out concert!”
“We are thrilled to host this fantastic tribute concert in the VBC Propst Arena,” said Steve Maples, the Von Braun Center Executive Director. “Other tribute concerts drew enthusiastic support from the Huntsville community. We expect a lot of excitement for this homage to Randy Travis and look forward to what will undoubtedly be another memorable musical event!”
