Horseshoe Welcomes Randy Travis

Posted in Entertainment by sceneandheardblog on January 28, 2011

Randy Travis, is an American country singer and actor. Active since 1985, he has recorded more than a dozen studio albums to date, in addition to charting more than thirty singles on the Billboard Hot Country Songs charts, of which sixteen have reached Number One. Considered a pivotal figure in the history of country music, Travis broke through in the mid-1980s with the release of his album Storms of Life on Warner Bros. Records; the album sold more than three million copies. It also established him as a neotraditionalist country act, and was followed by a string of several more platinum and multi-platinum albums throughout his career.  He left Warner Bros. in 1997 for DreamWorks Records; there, he would eventually switch his focus to gospel music, a switch which, despite earning him only one more country hit in the Number One “Three Wooden Crosses,” earned him several Dove Awards. This one time performance will be held on April 8th at 7:30 p.m. in the Showroom.  Tickets go on sale Friday February 4th, 2011 and may be purchased through Ticketmaster or the Horseshoe Box office
