After Randy Travis suffered a stroke on July 7, 2013, any sort of tour seemed like a long shot. Against all odds, Travis will overcome the setbacks laid out in his recently released book Forever and Ever, Amen A Memoir of Music, Faith and Braving the Storms of Life for this fall's The Music of Randy Travis Tour.

The tour features Travis' long-time touring band (Steve Hinson, David Johnson, Lance Dary, Bill Cook, Joe Van Dyke and Herb) as well as fellow country singer and The Price co-star James Dupré.

Per a press release, Dupré will perform Travis' 16 number one hits with the band, with Travis making a special appearance.

In addition, VIP passes available for each tour stop offer fans the opportunity to meet Travis.

"We are incredibly excited to be back on the road and give Randy's fans a chance to hear his music live again, and who better to sing his many hits than James Dupré?" said Travis' wife Mary Davis Travis in a press release.

Travis changed the country music landscape with his debut major label album, 1986's Storms of Life. Since then, he's earned seven Grammy Awards, six CMA awards, 11 ACM Awards, 10 AMA awards, eight Dove awards, a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame and a spot in the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum's rotunda.
