Darius Rucker dusted off a Randy Travis classic for his performance on Wednesday’s “CMT Celebrates Our Heroes: An Artists of the Year Special”.
Performing from his home, the former Hootie and the Blowfish frontman paid tribute to the frontline workers who have been keeping America going throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, performing Randy Travis’ 1987 hit “Forever and Ever Amen”.
“I just want to say a big thank you to American engineers,” Rucker said. “And to all the healthcare workers and the frontline responders and everybody out there, the postal workers, the bus drivers, all of you out there. I want to say so much, Thank you for all you’re doing for us.”
“CMT Celebrates Our Heroes: An Artists of the Year Special” recognized COVID-19 heroes in different categories, including healthcare, education, business, community leaders, food industry, infrastructure, first responders, military, and more.
