WATCH: Randy Travis Greets Cody Jinks on Stage in Ardmore, Okla
All of Cody Jinks fans are special, but if you pressed him we imagine that he'd admit Randy Travis is the most special, to him at least. The country legend made his way onstage during Jinks show last Friday night, right after Jinks covered "Diggin' Up Bones."
The encounter happened at Heritage Hall in Ardmore, Okla. Randy's wife, Mary Davis, greeted the crowd for her husband, saying "When George Jones said, 'Who's gonna fill their shoes?' he said Randy Travis. And I just want to tell you tonight, when people ask us who is gonna fill Randy Travis' shoes, [it's] Cody Jinks."
"I'm just glad I didn’t screw the song up with him sitting right there," Jinks says from the stage. He went on, "when I was a kid, there were three artists I wanted to sing like: One of them was Merle Haggard. One of them was Keith Whitley. And the other was Randy Travis."
Special shout out to YouTuber Curtis Jones for sharing the video.
