Randy Travis Tribute Concert Lineup Adds More Stars
The list of stars set to appear at 1 Night. 1 Place. 1 Time: A Heroes and Friends Tribute to Randy Travis continues to grow, with the addition of several new names recently announced.
On Friday (Jan. 27), it was revealed that Chris Young, Paul Overstreet, Shane Owens, Mark Chesnutt, Daryle Singletary and rising stars William Michael Morgan and Chuck Wicks are set to perform at the show. They join the previously announced list of all-stars including country music veterans Kenny Rogers, Tanya Tucker, Travis Tritt, Alabama and Wynonna Judd, and rising stars Kane Brown, Scotty McCreery, Chris Janson and Michael Ray. Additionally, Josh Turner, Jamey Johnson, Montgomery Gentry, Alison Krauss and more will all pay tribute to the country legend.
1 Night. 1 Place. 1 Time serves as a tribute concert to the music icon, who suffered a stroke in 2013 that took away his ability to walk and speak. The entire industry has been behind him as he has slowly fought to recover.

"It’s amazing to see the support that Randy has received from the music industry since his stroke," Travis’ manager, Tony Conway of Conway Entertainment, tells the Tennessean. "We’re thrilled to have all of these artists come out and pay tribute to him."
A portion of the night's proceeds will go toward the Randy Travis Foundation, which works to raise money for stroke research and rehab for patients.
Travis has recovered enough to make several appearances over the last year. He was inducted into the Country Music Hall of Fame in 2016 and amazed the crowd by leading a singalong of "Amazing Grace," and appeared in the opening medley at the 50th annual CMA Awards. He also surprised Charlie Daniels onstage at his 80th Birthday Volunteer Jam to present him with a Humanitarian of the Year Award.
The 1 Night. 1 Place. 1 Time: A Heroes and Friends Tribute to Randy Travis concert takes place on Feb. 8 at Nashville's Bridgestone Arena.
