Amen! Randy Travis Gets Hero’s Salute During 60th Birthday Celebration at the Grand Ole Opry [Watch]

Randy Travis made a special appearance on the Grand Ole Opry stage on May 4 to celebrate his 60th birthday.

The showcase featured performances by Charles Esten, Josh Turner, Charlie Worsham, Ricky Skaggs and Don Schlitz, the Hall of Fame songwriter behind many of Randy’s hits, including  “Deeper Than The Holler,” “Forever and Ever, Amen,” “Heroes And Friends,” “On the Other Hand” and “Point Of Light.”

To close the show, Randy joined the all-star cast onstage for a rendition of “Forever and Ever, Amen,” capping the song with the final “amen,” which you can watch below.

Randy will release his new book, Forever and Ever, Amen: A Memoir of Music, Faith and Braving the Storms of Life, on May 14. Randy, with the help of author Ken Abraham, shares stories of his working-class childhood, country music career, medical problems, broken marriage and more.

“I didn’t really feel I had a book to write until I stood on the distant shore and looked back over the ripples my life has made—on myself and on others,” said Randy. “My songs were the stories of my life and I learned from those who listened, they were theirs too—my fans inspired me and continue to do so.”
