Just add some more hardware to the Randy Travis collection.
Travis was a generational talent back in the ’80s and early ’90s, and he recently even added to the arsenal after dropping a handful of unreleased songs on his 35th anniversary Storms of Life album.
CMT announced today that he’s won the “Artist of a Lifetime” award for this year’s “CMT Artists of the Year” ceremony.
Needless to say, he’s in good hands, as country idols such as Reba, Loretta Lynn, Shania Twain, Kenny Rogers, and Merle Haggard have won the award previously.
Travis shared his thoughts on winning the award:
“To think you receive a Lifetime Achievement award for sharing your heart with the world through music is really beyond words of gratitude.
CMT has been so good to me throughout my career and I’m happy they believe I gave something in return. I’m blessed and most thankful.”
Much deserved Mr. Travis, much deserved.
The ceremony will be held live from Nashville’s Schermerhorn Symphony Center on Wednesday, October 13 at 9p/8c on CMT.
