Randy Travis was awarded for ‘What country music is all about’

Randy Travis, a prominent figure in the world of country music, was welcomed into the Louisiana Music Hall of Fame over the past weekend.

A decade ago, the singer, who is now 64 years old, suffered a stroke that rendered her unable to perform. She was present for the ceremony that took place on Saturday night at the Cajun Country Jam in Denham Springs.

Shenandoah, a country music group, gave a performance of some of Travis’ classics as part of his induction ceremony.

Travis, who was born in North Carolina but has spent the majority of his life in Tennessee, was inducted into the Country Music Hall of Fame in the year 2016. The songs “Forever and Ever, Amen” and “On the Other Hand” are among his most successful works.

In 2019, preparations were announced for The Music of Randy Travis Tour, during which James Dupré would perform 16 hits backed by the country star’s band, and Travis would make an appearance on stage. Travis has not performed since his stroke in 2013, but the tour is scheduled to take place in 2019. In the end, the tour was canceled because to “production issues.”
