Randy Travis replaced by Wyclef Jean at Tampa benefit show during RNC

Randy Travis will not perform as planned at the veteran-focused Got Your 6 benefit concert during the Republican National Convention, reports

The disgraced country and gospel singer I wrote about Sunday will be replaced by hip-hop star Wyclef Jean, who first came to fame as the lead rapper and sometimes guitarist of the Fugees.

Willie Nelson and fellow country singer/songwriter Jerry Jeff Walker were originally expected to appear at the event, but canceled due to scheduling issues.
