The Craven Country Jamboree began yesterday in Regina, SK, Canada, and unfortunately had to make a last-minute replacement.

Randy Travis was scheduled to appear at the festival, but due to his life-threatening medical issues right now the festival had to scramble to find someone to take his place. Luckily for fans, they were able to find a legendary group to replace the legendary singer.

The festival announced yesterday that they had been able to secure the Oak Ridge Boys to perform in Randy's place. 

"Though we continue to wish Mr. Travis well, we are thrilled that we are able to replace country music legend Randy Travis with the Oak Ridge Boys," said Kim Blevins, director of marketing, in a media release. "It is really hard to find an act of this calibre that is available on such short notice.

The Oak Ridge Boys will perform at 5:30 Saturday afternoon on the festival's mainstage.
