Randy Travis, a country music star, has revealed a life-altering health diagnosis.
Randy Travis is one of the most successful country artists of all time, selling over 25 million records worldwide.
He has seven Grammys, 11 CMAs, and ten ACMs to his credit. In 2016, he was inducted into the Country Music Hall of Fame.
Randy's wife, Mary, spoke out about his health after he suffered a major stroke in 2013.
He was diagnosed with aphasia, which is a type of brain impairment that causes the inability to interpret or express speech.
Travis, a singer known for his powerful vocals, now has limited speech. "It means a lot to him," Mary said of the gathering of country stars to recognize his achievements.
"I mean, just to know that he made the music that he made and that it stands the test of time."
Randy nodded and grinned in accord as Mary spoke.
'Hey, I want to be one of those that sings your music' when they have a full library of their own music.
