Almost four years after suffering a stroke, Randy Travis got back on stage to perform during a visit to a popular Texas honky-tonk.
According to Fox 4, the country star visited Lil Red’s Longhorn Saloon in the historic Fort Worth Stockyards to film a segment for RFD TV series The Penny Gilley Show. 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.
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 a 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.
