On the night of December 11th, the legendary country music artist, Randy Travis celebrated a big milestone in his music career with celebrating thirty-five years as a official member of the Grand Ole Opry!
The singer songwriter made a special appearance at the Grand Ole Opry that night to celebrate this achievement with fellow country music artists performing the same night including Jon Pardi, Old Crow Medicine Show, Carly Pearce and a longtime collaborator of the artist, Don Schlitz.
Later in the night, Randy Travis got another surprise as Warner Music’s Cris Lacy, Executive Vice President, A&R, and Brette Moseley, Catalog Manager came out to present him with a plaque to commemorate the RIAA Gold, Platinum and Multi-Platinum certifications of more than 21 million combined copies of his Warner Music catalog.
