Last summer the country music community and the world almost lost a legendary singer/songwriter. Randy Travis had a brush with death, which included three surgeries and lengthy hospital stays. Travis was on the road to recovery before it was revealed that he had reportedly suffered some setbacks. It was then reported that Travis was practically paralyzed and that he may never perform again. Thankfully, new health updates report that Randy is doing drastically better. It is now being reported that Travis’ voice has returned. Could this mean that we might see Travis return to the stage sometime soon?

Randy’s Father, Harald Traywick, was one of the first people to open up about just how bad his son's condition had gotten, telling the National Enquirer:
"Randy is still in very bad shape...It's possible he'll never perform again."
However, Traywick is singing a different tune with the latest health update about his son, telling Closer:
“He’s getting his voice back now, little by little.”
This is surely good news for fans of Travis who are hoping to hear him sing one more time.
In the meantime, singer/songwriter Bonnie Paul has recently released a demo version, of one of Travis’ previously unheard songs, called “Childhood Sweethearts.”
Paul also recently tweeted about Travis health, writing:
“Great Xmas news 4 y'all , my mom was actually talking with Randy on phone , sounds strong and wonderful and walking on his own.....”
Meanwhile, actor Anthony Maurizio, a family friend of Travis, recently released a picture of the actor looking remarkably better.
Could this mean that we might start to hear some new music from Travis sometime soon?
Last year, Travis released a new album, The Influence Vol 1: The Man I Am, about which he wrote on his website:
“When I think of my musical heroes of yesteryear, or the younger stars of this year, I am reminded that it is true we learn from the ones ahead of us, and teach the ones that follow. They are the reason I chose to make this album.”
