Country music legend Randy Travis rang in his 60th birthday on Saturday, May 04 by making a rare public appearance onstage at the fabled Grand Ole Opry.
The “Forever and Ever, Amen” singer has kept a low-profile ever since losing his voice following a massive stroke in 2013, but he made an exception this weekend as he joined fans and famous friends to take part in a special celebration event held in his honour at the Nashville, Tennessee venue.
Travis marked his age milestone with artists including his fellow Country Music Hall of Famer Don Schlitz, Charlie Worsham, Josh Turner, and singer/actor Charles Esten.
The birthday boy was also treated to a star-studded video message, featuring well wishes from Carrie Underwood and a host of other artists.
“Hey, Randy! Carrie here, happy birthday!” Underwood shared in her clip. “Happy 60th birthday, you know I absolutely love you. I adore you as an artist, as a human.”
“You’re such an inspiration to me and so many others. So I just hope you have the best birthday ever because you deserve it, happy birthday.”
