Country Legend Randy Travis Finds His Voice Again

One of the voices of country music, Randy Travis finds his voice again four years after suffering a stroke that nearly cost him his life.

In Macon, Georgia, radio station WMAZ shared an amazing video of Travis singing together with a friend and fellow musician Dave Alexander. Alexander was one of the many players who started making visits to Travis’ home to sing with him. Alexander said the effect that the music had on Travis’ was apparent.

“I can see it in his eyes,” Alexander said. “I just know when it reaches him. I have no doubt it reaches him.”

The “Forever and Ever, Amen” spent five months in the hospital after he suffered a stroke in 2013. The doctors told his wife Mary that there was no hope for his recovery. Although Travis may never sound exactly like how he did when he was able to top the country charts in the 1980s and 90s, his recovery has been truly incredible.

Travis first surprised his fans and friends by singing during his Country Music Hall of Fame induction in 2016. Then after, he has made significant strides in his vocal communication. He even sat down for a revealing interview earlier this month.

Alexander has been playing shows with Travis to help raise money for the Randy Travis Foundation. All proceeds go to research and care for those who have suffered strokes and toward efforts to keep music in schools. Both Travis and Alexander will play another show on Nov. 18 in Gainesville, Texas, and expect more to be scheduled in the future.
