Randy Travis Sings ‘Amazing Grace’ as Country Music Stars Honor Hall of Famers 2

Since the year 2013, when Randy Travis suffered a stroke that rendered him unable to talk, he has had a difficult time communicating. To this day, he is unable to articulate complete sentences. Randy Travis, on the other hand, performed a song during the  Country Music Hall of Fame Medallion Ceremony on Sunday night. When Travis started singing Amazing Grace, the rapt audience in the intimate CMA auditorium at the Hall of Fame stood up. After that, the crowd sang along with Travis, encouraged by his wife Mary Davis-Travis, who spoke on his behalf.





The presence of a number of exceptionally talented singers in the audience was of great assistance. These singers included Garth Brooks, Vince Gill, and Brenda Lee, who were the ones who officially inducted the honorees. Additionally, Trace Adkins, Brandy Clark, Alan Jackson, Jamey Johnson, Kris Kristofferson, Brad Paisley, and Dolly Parton were among those who performed musical tributes to the individuals who were being honored. Prior to Randy Travis being taken to the stage, Brooks made the following statement:

“Randy Travis was the forefather that kind of laid it down.” His wife and Brad Paisley were also present to assist Travis. “Please tell me any another artist working in a different genre who has ever in the history of mankind taken a format, flipped it around so that it was back to where it originated, and made it even more popular than it was before. It is not something that has ever occurred, and it will never occur again.

“You were a beacon of light on the radio when you first started, and you are still one of the greatest singers we’ve ever had,” Paisley said to Travis after he had performed “Forever and Ever, Amen,” which is considered to be one of Travis’ most successful songs.A number of other significant events occurred throughout the evening, one of which was Dolly Parton’s sincere gratitude to music executive Fred Foster as she thanked him.

It’s clear that you gave me a chance…Before beginning to perform her first hit, “Dumb Blonde,” Dolly Parton said, “And you were a gentleman when Porter Wagoner stole me away.” “You were the one who gave me my first record,” I stated. Another moment that evoked strong feelings was when Kris Kristofferson ascended the stage to pay tribute to Foster. Foster was the one who provided Kris Kristofferson with the inspiration for his song “Me and Bobby McGee,” which went on to become a huge hit for Janice Joplin.

Brenda Lee, often known as “Little Miss Dynamite,” grabbed everyone’s attention when she stood on a box behind the podium. She is only 4 feet 9 inches tall. She stated, “If I didn’t, all you’d see is a hairdo,” before then speaking from the heart about Charlie Daniels, who was inducted into the Hall of Fame. When asked about Charlie Daniels, Lee stated, “The thing I love about him is that he loves you back.” Instead of working for him, he is in love with the individuals that work with him. And above all else, Charlie, he has a deep affection for the United States of America.




The performance of Trisha Yearwood, who rocked the house with her rendition of Daniels’ “It Hurts Me,” which Elvis Presley made a hit back in 1964, Jamey Johnson’s rendition of “Long Haired Country Boy,” and Trace Adkins and violin virtuoso Andrea Zonn’s powerful rendition of “The Devil Went Down to Georgia,” was another way in which Daniels was celebrated. To bring the event to a close, both former and current members of the Hall of Fame took the stage to perform “Will the Circle Be Unbroken.” At this point in time, it appears like the response will not be forthcoming.
