How is Randy Travis doing? Though updates on the beloved country singer's health condition have been few and far between, since the award-winning musical artist was transferred to an inpatient facility this fall, there appear to be signs that Randy Travis may just be doing a little better now.
Just this week Randy Travis appeared in a Lifetime movie titled, "Christmas on the Bayou," which aired Saturday, December 14, 2013. Seeing the beloved star performing again after his critical heart condition landed him in a hospital this summer was a special treat for long-time fans of the "Three Wooden Crosses" singer. In the months following his discharge from the hospital where he underwent brain surgery, very little was shared about the Randy Travis' condition and if he was getting any better.
Indeed, for a while many began to fear perhaps Randy Travis was not doing any better at all — even after surviving a stroke — as numerous musical tour dates were cancelled and updates on the singer's health condition had been removed from the RandyTravis.com website. Some rumors had spread via the Inquisitir that the singer may have been having difficulty recovering from his stroke as some reports alleged brain damage had occurred. While there are still no public statements as to how Randy Travis is doing right now, the fact that he appeared in the recent Lifetime Christmas movie and that updates are beginning to appear again on the Randy Travis official webpage gives us hope that the country music star is recovering and will perhaps be seen again on stage one day.
Last month, during the intermission of the George Jones Tribute Concert in Nashville, TN actor Jon Voight was heard sharing a few words in honor of the legendary Randy Travis.
"I'm so deeply honored to be in the church of Jones with you all ... George Jones had a good friend who was really all of our good friend and that is Randy Travis ... Randy is going through a great challenge as we speak and he's making great strides. And as we know the most important thing, the most important thing to a person's recovery is their will to recover, and I feel that with all our love and prayers Randy will receive that energy."
Jon Voight then asked fans to lock hands forming a human chain of love and positive energy to send in the direction of Randy Travis. As the crowds shouted "Randy" over and over again, Jon Voight was heard saying, "He's not too far away from here, he can probably hear us from this building." Moments later the crowd was heard chanting, "We love you," to Randy Travis.
Though Randy Travis' condition right now is not certain, one thing is: the dedication of his fan base is unparalleled. Seeing the continuous concern of Randy Travis' fans as they pray for the singer's return to health is evidence that Randy Travis is one of the most beloved musical artists alive today.
