Randy Travis was honored with the Lee Greenwood Award by the Helping A Hero organization on Monday (Dec. 10) at their Lee Greenwood & Friends concert in Houston. The concert, held at Houston Baptist University, celebrated Christmas and patriotism while honoring and raising money to build homes for wounded warriors.
The reception and silent auction was followed by the concert program, featuring performances by special guests. Scooter Brown Band sang songs from their album American Son while Tate Stevens performed “Ordinary Angels.” Gavin DeGraw performed many of his hits including “Soldier” and Lee Greenwood offered a rendition of “God Bless the USA.” SSG Shilo Harris, a retired military veteran, received the Pillar Award.
“Randy Travis has done so much for our troops over the years having done five USO tours and otherwise entertaining and honoring them in a variety of ways. We are thrilled to be able to recognize him for his continued efforts and salute his enormous talents,” said Meredith Iler, Chairman Emeritus of Helping A Hero.
“As a combat veteran, it means the world to me that Helping A Hero is serving veterans who have sacrificed for our freedom. Tonight was a celebration of decades of music, with various genres represented—we were glad to be a part of it,” said Brown.
