Riders In The Sky Salute Randy Travis

Feb 9 | Posted by: Riders In The Sky

We were delighted to take part in the salute to Randy Travis last night in front of many thousand fans at Nashville’s Bridgestone Arena.

“Randy’s an old friend and a former neighbor of mine,” said Too Slim, “and he’s had a rough streak lately. I was so glad I got to hug his neck and tell him I loved him.”

Riders In The Sky were part of a Grand Ole Oprycast rendering of “I’ll Fly Away,” which brought the ginormous crowd to its feet in a joyous singalong. 

The star-studded fundraiser for stroke detection, rehab, and awareness raised a bunch of money for a great cause, and, of equal importance, recognized and celebrated a transformative artist and a really good guy.

“That was good,” reflected Joey, the Certified Accordion Player, as we left the stage. And so it was.
