It's seems like just yesterday when I first heard Randy Travis' Forever and Ever Amen.  But, time moves on and before you know it, a quarter-century has passed you by.

Randy is planning on observing 25 years in the business with his 25th Anniversary Celebration Tour.  The first show will be Friday, February 10th in Grand Ronde, Oregon at Spirit Mountain Casino. The tour will have more than 20 stops like Boise, Denver and Fort Worth TX.  He plans one international stop in Calgary.  More venues may be added at a later date.

In and interview with our friends at GAC TV, Randy is quoted as saying:

I’m surprised at how fast the first 25 years have gone by.  It feels like only five. There’s no better feeling than being onstage and the connection with a live audience.

He's also going to be promoting his last CD.  The Anniversary Celebration album that featured duets of some of his greatest hits.  He brought some big talent to the venture, including  Brad Paisley, Kenny Chesney, Kris Kristofferson, Carrie Underwood, George Jones, Zac Brown Band, Lorrie Morgan, Jamey Johnson and more.

Randy's truly unique voice has propelled him to some major hits and he certainly has had the chops to fill larger venues in the past.  This latest tour, however appears to be geared more to the smaller, more intimate venues.
