Randy Travis Announces 25th Anniversary Celebration Tour
June of 2011 marked the beginning of seven-time Grammy Award-winner Randy Travis' 25th year in the music industry. To commemorate that silver anniversary, Travis released his 'Anniversary Celebration' record with Warner Bros., and he's just announced a 2012 North American tour to let fans in on the celebration.
Kicking off Friday, Feb. 10, in Grand Ronde, Ore. at Spirit Mountain Casino, the tour will take Travis all over the U.S. and Canada, with more than 30 stops on the way. He will likely play a significant set from his 'Anniversary' record, which married his original works with his favorites, including 'More Life,' 'Road to Surrender,' 'He Walked on Water' and 'Forever and Ever, Amen.'
The album also features guest appearances by Zac Brown Band, Kenny Chesney, Brad Paisley, Kris Kristofferson, George Jones, Carrie Underwood, Lorrie Morgan and Jamey Johnson among others. Thinking back on a career that has already lasted a quarter century, Travis says the time has gone quickly.
"I'm surprised at how fast the first 25 years have gone by. It feels like only five," he said in a press release, adding about his 25th Anniversary Celebration Tour, "There's no better feeling than being on stage and the connection with a live audience."
