Congrats to North Texas’ own Randy Travis on being the first recipient of the Cracker Barrel Country Legend Award. He was presented that honor Saturday in Nashville as part of CMA Fest 2018. The newly created award will be given annually to COuntry musicians with over 30 years in the business. Cracker Barrel also presented a $5000 in Randy Travis’ name to the CMA Foundation..
“RANDY is so honored to receive the first-ever CRACKER BARREL Country Legend Award at CMA FEST 2018,” said TRAVIS’ wife, MARY. “Music education, in RANDY’s opinion, is pivotal to a child’s development, so we thank CRACKER BARREL for joining us in this passion by donating to KEEP THE MUSIC PLAYING in his name. They could have picked any number of Country icons for this award, so being chosen as the first is truly humbling.”
