Country Radio Broadcasters To Honor Randy Travis

Randy Travis is set to be honored at this year’s Country Radio Hall of Fame Dinner and Awards ceremony. Travis is the recipient of the 2016 CRB Artist Career Achievement Award. Josh Turner will pay tribute to Travis with a special performance.

The honors will be presented during the Country Radio Hall of Fame Dinner and Awards ceremony, which will be held on Wednesday, June 22, 2016 at the Omni Nashville Hotel. A cocktail reception will take place at 6:00 p.m. with the induction ceremony to follow at 7:00 p.m.

“This annual event has proven to be one of the most special nights of the year in our industry, as we recognize and honor the greats in our business,” said CRB/CRS Executive Director, Bill Mayne.

The CRB Artist Career Achievement Award is presented to an individual artist or act that, through their creativity, vision, performance or leadership has made a significant contribution to the development and promotion of country music and country radio.

Travis commented, “To be chosen by the Country Radio Broadcasters for a Career Lifetime Achievement Award is an honor quite unlike any other. The artist’s and the broadcaster’s relationship is one of unspoken respect. I appreciate so much the kindness I have been shown over the years by radio; and, I have enjoyed the many interviews I have had the opportunity to do with so many of the stations across the country. You have each become a part of my success and allowed my fans an opportunity to know me better—as an artist and as a person. Thank you for believing in me…and in my body of work. It is YOU which I take my hat off to.”

Congratulations, buddy! You deserve it, and more! I learned to dance to your music. I wrote the words down to most of your songs so I could sing it by memory loud and proud! Forever and Ever Amen has always been my favorite! I'm from Texas and yet I live in Missouri at the moment. One of my college professors just passed away. He was my mentor and counsellor. Loved the man. He was a gentle cowboy. He also had a band that sang a lot of Randy's music. Any chance he might have time to drop by St Louis on Fri morning at ten am to meet the family and friends? Thanks for reading and passing this along, Todd Rowell
