Latest Randy Travis Video Proves He Cheated Death

Latest Randy Travis Video Proves He Cheated Death 1

Almost four years have passed after suffering from stroke, now one of the voices of country music, Randy Travis goes back on stage and performed during a visit to a popular Texas honky-tonk in Fort Worth last Tuesday.

The country legend who lives near Denton is now showing his determination after disappearing from the scene for a while.

Randy Travis was at Lil Red’s Longhorn Saloon to record a segment for The Penny Gilley Show on RD TV. Although he had to stay seated while the band played through his 1987 hit, “Forever and Ever, Amen,” he was still able to sing the last few notes of the trademark tune.

“You just don’t give up. God doesn’t read the medical reports,” said by his wife Mary Travis.

The seven-time Grammy Award-winning singer can talk a little because of the stroke, but he is better when he sings. Going on stage takes a lot of courage, but the singer is determined to give others inspiration. He’s also started the Randy Travis Foundation to help with early detection and rehabilitation.

Mary says her husband has never stopped fighting to get stronger.

“I think it was one of the Oakridge Boys who said God’s not ready for you and the devil don’t want you,” Mary said. “Fortunate to still be here and still fighting. Hope we can give other people hope.”

Although Travis is only able to sing the track’s final “Amen,” that small step represents a dramatic recovery process that’s still ongoing. In 2013, Travis nearly died from the stroke that left him unable to talk or walk for months. Over the past year, he’s been attending many public events and even sat down for an interview about the ordeal.

It’s unclear if he will ever be able to perform like he did before the stroke. Still, Travis is determined to keep singing, no matter what.
