With one of the most recognizable voices in country music and over twenty-five years on the country music charts, Randy Travis is one of the top-ten selling solo country artists of all time. Travis has sold over twenty- one million albums, has twenty-two #1 hits, six Grammy Awards, five Country Music Awards, nine Academy of Country Music Awards and ten American Music Awards to his credit.
Collin Raye has produced five Platinum Albums, fifteen #1 hits and twenty-four top 10 songs. Many in the industry call Raye one of the best vocalists and live entertainers around, citing his five nominations as Country Music's Male Vocalist of the year. But perhaps the closest to Collin's heart is his granddaughter, Hailey, who is afflicted with a rare degenerative brain disorder. Collin has worked tirelessly to help find a cure for Hailey and has helped other families who are faced similar situations.
Terri and her legacy continue to touch and change lives every day thanks to the work of Terri's Foundation, a 501(c) (3) tax exempt organization, established to educate and assist families - enabling them to better protect the rights and lives of their cognitively disabled loved ones. Funds raised through ticket sales and sponsorships for this event will allow Terri's Foundation to honor her legacy in many ways. Most importantly, it will allow the foundation to continue protecting the lives of vulnerable persons by serving as a resource for families whose loved ones are in jeopardy of having their deaths hastened.
