Randy Travis’s incredible performance three years after his stroke

Randy Travis’ voice is one of the few that actually sends chills down my spine.

He had a stroke many years ago, but that didn’t stop him from performing a lovely performance of “Amazing Grace” in honor of fellow country music icon George Jones.

The iconic musician was illuminated by blue and purple lighting as he paid tribute to the recently deceased George Jones at the Grand Ole Opry.

Travis was accompanied by friends and colleagues including as Alan Jackson, Vince Gill, and Travis Tritt.

Travis’s wife, Mary, has publicly revealed her husband’s traumatic stroke and how supportive devoted fans have been throughout this tough time.

Randy Travis was transported to a Dallas hospital in July 2013 with viral cardiomyopathy problems. He had a stroke, had brain surgery, and was placed in a coma. Doctors indicated his prospects of life were slim; the country and gospel music icon had a one-to-two percent chance of surviving.

As a result, it was pointless to continue their efforts to save his life.


Mary Davis Travis, his wife, had the option of simply turning off the life-support system and letting her husband sleep. The physicians asked her the question directly. What did she wish to accomplish?

She, on the other hand, elected to disregard all of the standard regulations. She chose to do something entirely unusual instead of following the standard and listening to physicians.

The scientists may have given him a one to two percent chance of survival, but Mary knew her husband was a warrior. Turning off the respirators was just not an option for her.

“I prayed hard, ‘God, please let me have him back, in any way, shape, or form,'” May told USA Today.

Randy remained in a coma, entangled in a bed of cables, but Mary never contemplated turning off his machines, despite the fact that her husband was virtually skin and bones.

Then, one day, the miraculous happened. Randy awoke.

“We’re fortunate. We’re content with where we are. We have no idea what God has in store for us at the conclusion of this journey. We’re simply grateful to be where we are right now, and we’re singing a new tune,” she remarked. “We’re happy to serve a purpose wherever there is one to serve.” Of course, he would want to return to that platform one day. We’re just enjoying life right now and feel extremely fortunate to be where we are.”

Randy has been wheelchair-bound since his stroke, but he is improving and can walk small distances on his own. He has also taken up music, and he has a tremendous passion and affection for it.

He regained his ability to walk and was honored into the Country Music Hall of Fame in 2016.

“Anyone who knows Randy knows he’s lived a colorful life. “He’s had a difficult life, but also a beautiful life,” his wife adds.

If the below performance is any indication, Travis, who is currently suffering from aphasia, has definitely been trying and praying to regain his previous level of skill.

Watch Travis’ performance and tell us what you think about his rehabilitation journey!

The fact that he done this following his stroke. Is incredible. Mr. Travis, you are a gifted individual! This still sends shivers up my spine. I can see and hear his pain, and I pray for his recovery.
