On October 24, 2023, the first of two tribute concerts honoring legend and superstar Randy Travis took place at Huntsville, Alabama's VBC Propst Arena, drawing the biggest names in country music,
including Kane Brown, Dennis Quaid, Lorrie Morgan, Shenandoah, and many more. Randy Travis was present to accept the honors and see other celebrities play his iconic classics, despite the fact that a stroke a decade ago severely damaged his health and vocal cords.
In an exclusive interview with Woman's World on October 24, 2023, Randy's wife Mary Travis says, "The music speaks for itself and because Randy can't sing his own songs today,
it's comforting to listen to other musicians play Randy's songs... and I know that he likes that." "Well, you should have cut that song and not me," he'll add, but that's just Randy Travis' charming modesty.
One of the all-time best-selling musicians is Travis. In addition to several distinctions from his illustrious career, he is a member of the Country Music Hall of Fame and has received seven Grammy Awards,
eleven Academy of Country Music trophies, ten American Music Awards, eight Gospel Music Association Dove Awards, and five Country Music Association honors.
Three of his successes, "On the Other Hand" (1986), "Forever and Ever Amen" (1987), and "Three Wooden Crosses" (2002), were named CMA Song of the Year. In addition to having more than 40 performances in feature films and television series to his credit,
Karoline surprised Muriel with Randy Travis concert tickets, and she, her husband, and Muriel's son all went to the show in Pigeon Forge, Tennessee.
