THE BELLAMY BROTHERS: THE LOVE STILL FLOWS…

Howard and David continue to prove that the trail they’ve ridden to fame has been as unique as their music itself—music that is now celebrating over 40 years of success.

The road that started on the pop music charts in the ‘70’s, took a winding turn into country music in the ‘80’s, paving the way for duos to come, such as Brooks & Dunn, Montgomery Gentry, Big & Rich and previously—The Judds. But before the road forked into country, the musical odyssey of brothers Bellamy started creatively smoldering in their home state of Florida, before exploding nationally amidst the ’70’s pop music culture of L.A.

An Evening with Randy Travis

More Life Tour featuring Randy Travis, James Dupre, and special guest Lee Newton

Friday, July 21, 2023, at 8:00 PM
$54.00 + Tax

“During a 25-year recording career, Travis became known as the epitome of what country music should sound like.”

His career was halted in its tracks when Randy suffered a massive stroke in 2013. His miraculous return was saluted with a tearful standing ovation when Garth Brooks inducted him into the Country Music Hall of Fame in 2016. In 2019, Randy and writer Ken Abraham documented the dramatic highs and lows of his life in an autobiography titled Forever and Ever, Amen: A Memoir of Music, Faith and Braving the Storms of Life.

Storms of Life is the record that originally made Randy Travis a pivotal figure in the history of country music. Its reissue emphasizes what a landmark it was/is, and its previously unheard performances underscore this artist’s stature as one of the greatest vocalists in the annals of country music. The lost-love ballad “The Wall” sounds like an overlooked country classic. Stuttering guitar and scampering fiddle accompany Randy’s toe-tapping delivery of “Ain’t No Use.” His performance on the honky-tonk heartache waltz “Carryin’ Fire” is a work of sheer brilliance.

Indeed, everything about Storms of Life mark Randy Travis as a monumental, masterful stylist for the ages. Both the artist and this recording are American music treasures.

Shortly after, he released his debut album It’s All Happening in 2010, which charted on Billboard. After signing a record deal with Warner Music Nashville in 2011, Dupré began performing and touring full-time through 2014. Shortly thereafter Dupré appeared on NBC’s “The Voice,” Season 9, where a four-chair turn ultimately landed him on Adam Levine’s team.

However, when she covered the music of Loretta Lynn, people took notice.
