Randy Travis grew up in rural North Carolina. However, he always felt an affinity for Texas and the cowboy lifestyle. During his career, he took influence from the Lone Star State’s flavor of Country & Western music. Later in life, he and his wife Mary moved to a ranch in the Dallas—Fort Worth area. They still call that ranch home.

Now, members of the Texas country music scene—new and old—will pay tribute to the influential singer/songwriter. They’ll take the stage to play some of Travis’ biggest hits. The “Diggin’ Up Bones” singer notched 23 No. 1 singles. As a result, the assembled artists will have plenty of material from which to choose.

However, it will be more than a night of great music. A portion of the proceeds from the event will benefit the Randy Travis Foundation. The foundation is a charity dedicated to raising awareness for stroke and aphasia and providing arts and music enrichment for children, according to a press release. It aims to connect a diverse group of people to support stroke survivors and encourage research for stroke and aphasia prevention. Additionally, the foundation provides opportunities for at-risk children to participate in arts and music programs.
