Randy Travis continues to make a remarkable comeback after his devastating stroke three years ago. First, he stunned the world by singing “Amazing Grace” at his induction into the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum earlier this month, and just this week, he showed up in the audience at Garth Brooks’ Ascend Amphitheater show in Nashville, looking remarkably healthy. Now comes the news he’ll be on next month’s historic CMA Awards.
Promising more performers than any other show in the half-century history of the show, Randy’s fellow 2016 Hall of Fame inductee Charlie Daniels will appear, as well as Ricky Skaggs, Roy Clark, Clint Black, Jason Aldean, Jennifer Nettles, Martina McBride, Chris Stapleton, Thomas Rhett, Elle King, a capella sensations Pentatonix and Dwight Yoakum.
Already set to perform are Alabama, Kelsea Ballerini, Dierks Bentley, Garth Brooks, Trisha Yearwood, Brooks & Dunn, Luke Bryan, Eric Church, Florida Georgia Line, Vince Gill, Alan Jackson, Miranda Lambert, Little Big Town, Tim McGraw, Maren Morris, Kacey Musgraves, Charley Pride, Reba, George Strait, Keith Urban and hosts Brad Paisley and Carrie Underwood.
You can catch the 50th Annual CMA Awards next Wednesday, airing live from Nashville’s Bridgestone Arena, starting at 8 p.m. ET on ABC.
