Travis' return to music was a highlight of the night, and his wife, Mary Davis-Travis, also spoke about her husband's battle to heal after a viral infection caused a stroke that left him hospitalized. "Randy stared death in the face, but death blinked," she said. "Today, God's proof of a miracle stands before you."

The country crooner was honored for being the first country artist to have a debut album, Storms of Life, go platinum in its first year, and was inducted into the Country Music Hall of Fame along with fiddler Charlie Daniels and record producer Fred Foster. Kris Kristofferson, Dolly Parton, Alan Jackson, Brad Paisley and Garth Brooks were among those who honored the inductees with musical tributes.
