Randy Travis was seeing double on Friday morning (Dec. 1). Actually, it was his double that he was seeing at the Madame Tussauds Wax Museum in Nashville.
The singer was on hand, with his wife, Mary, to unveil his life-like doppelgänger. Mary stepped out in front of fans and industry folk to say a few words before Randy was brought in front of the crowd in his wheelchair.
“Thank you so much for having us, this is the first time I’ve seen it,” Mary said through tears. This is unbelievable. Thank you so much to Madame Tussauds for the time and artisans that went into re-making our sweet Randy 20 years ago. It’s phenomenal. “Its such an honor we appreciate so much, y’all including us with these legends that we think walk on water. And we will love this forever and ever, amen.”
With that, Randy stood from his wheelchair to get an up close and personal look at himself. “Say hi to you,” Mary said. The 58-year-old singer was more than happy to stick around and take photos with the wax figure and those fans that were there to see him.
Visitors are able to interact with their favorite musical icon at Madame Tussauds Nashville. They will experience several interactive activities as they walk through attraction, including playing trivia games, getting their photo placed on the Jazz Wall of Fame, dressing up in costumes to experience the rock star lifestyle, recording their own song and standing on the Opry stage as an adoring crowd cheers you on.
