Dolly Parton Surprises A Young Randy Travis During Awards Show

In this throwback video, Dolly Parton surprises a young Randy Travis during a CMA Awards show.

“Oh hi, Randy,” Dolly says as she sneaks up behind Randy Travis on stage. He clearly was taken by surprise and did not expect to see her standing there. “I just wanted to come out here and make sure you didn’t need me.”

“Well, I might,” Randy replies in a joking manner. “You might?” Dolly says back to him.

The two laugh and share an embrace before she walks off stage to let Randy announce the winner to the award.

“It’s a tough job,” Randy says after Dolly has left the stage. Then he goes on to read the nominees for the female vocalist for the year which were Rosanne Cash, Patty Loveless, Kathy Mattea, Reba McEntire, and Tanya Tucker. The winner ended up being Kathy Mattea, and this was her first CMA award for Female Vocalist of the Year.

“Nobody can crack a joke out of thin air like Dolly! She is so classy,” comments one person on YouTube after watching the video.

“This makes me giggle and warms my heart! Those were the days!” writes another person online.

“God bless both of them! Two of the greatest ever!” comments another fan.

The reason why Dolly came up behind Randy and surprised him like that was because she did something similar at a previous award show. During that award show, she came up to him while she was speaking into the microphone and sat on his lap in a playful way and made him smile.

These two country music stars have a sweet friendship, and it is fun to see them joke with each other through the years. We hope that you enjoyed watching this video of Dolly Parton and Randy Travis today!
