Randy Travis, a Grammy Award-winning baritone singer, is a country music mainstay. For more than two decades, he has been one of the most successful country music stars.
He has sold over 25 million albums, won seven Grammy Awards, and performed extensively across the world.
Randy Travis now spends most of his days with his wife, Mary Davis-Travis, at their ranch on Lake Ray Roberts in Cooke County, just outside Tioga.
But did you know that despite his absolute height of fame, money, and celebrity, the country music singer went through some difficult times?
Randy Travis went to the emergency hospital in July 2013 with complaints of congestion. He had a major stroke a few days later "as a complication of his congestive heart failure."
This has harmed his entire left brain's core area. His heart stopped totally at one point, and medics hurried to place him on life support and into an induced coma to protect his brain.
Doctors advised his then-fiancee, Mary, that the musician had a 1% chance of survival and encouraged her to consider withdrawing him from life support. But Randy Travis' future bride was by his side the entire time.
The country music star's itinerary was jam-packed with tour dates and an acting role in an upcoming film.
