Country trio Restless Road recently experienced the surprise of a lifetime while filming content at the iconic Ryman Auditorium in Nashville.

The trio’s Zach Beeken, Garrett Nichols and Colton Pack were belting out a cover of Randy Travis’ 1987 chart-topper “Forever and Ever, Amen” when Opry members Randy Travis and Chris Young came out from the wings mid-chorus to surprise them. 

As one of the most successful country artists on TikTok, Travis felt a connection with the band, who are also well-known on the platform. With so many mutual connections, the Country Hall of Famer felt that surprising the band with his longtime friend Chris Young would be the perfect opportunity to link up.

Watch the memorable moment go down in the clip below.

Restless Road will soon check another item off of their bucket list when they take the stage at the Grand Ole Opry for their official Opry debut on Tuesday, June 22. 

It’s a full-circle moment for Pack as he used to work at the Opry’s Backstage Grill before his music career took off.

Restless Road has made a name for themselves as they grow in the country music scene as a result of their musical mash ups and fun personalities. The trio recently released their newest single, “Bar Friends.” 

“Bar Friends is all about friendship,” shared Nichols, “and celebrating that group of people that you always want to have fun with on the weekend.”

The band is set to open for Kane Brown’s Blessed & Free Tour later this year. The 35-stop tour starts in Sacramento and includes stops at iconic venues such as New York City’s Madison Square Garden and LA’s Staples Center.
