October 5, 2011 at 6:24 AM (PT)
The GRAND OLE OPRY in NASHVILLE paid tribute to WARNER MUSIC NASHVILLE artist RANDY TRAVIS as he celebrated 25 years in country music and as an OPRY member last night (10/4) on the TUESDAY NIGHT OPRY. TRAVIS was honored in song by fellow artists who appear with him on his newest CD, “Anniversary Celebration.”
“It’s amazing to me to be celebrating my 25th anniversary in the music business on this stage because of the way I grew up and what I grew up listening to,” TRAVIS said on stage.
TRAVIS’ portion of the show opened with TRAVIS and JOHN ANDERSON performing “Diggin’ Up Bones,” followed by “Is It Still Over,” with TRAVIS and CARRIE UNDERWOOD. JOSH TURNER joined RANDY on “T.I.M.E.,” and after TRAVIS performed alone, the show closed with “Didn’t We Shine” featuring RANDY, CONNIE SMITH, GENE WATSON and JOE STAMPLEY.
The “OPRY LIVE” premiere of the show on GAC: GREAT AMERICAN COUNTRY is scheduled for SATURDAY, OCTOBER 15th at 8p (CT).
