Randy Travis has kept a low profile since he was admitted to a physical therapy center following heart problems and a subsequent stroke last summer. This week, however, new photos have emerged on Twitter, showing Randy Travis recovering and looking the best he has in quite some time.
The stroke Randy Travis suffered last July was the breaking point in what had been a very stressful year for the country singer. In 2012, Randy Travis was charged with a misdemeanor for public intoxication and a separate misdemeanor for DWI that was complicated with felony charges for retaliation when he threatened the arresting officer. He was also involved in an assault, just a few weeks after the DWI.
Whether Randy Travis’ problems stemmed from stress endured after his divorce is unknown, but it would certainly stand to reason. The “Forever and Ever Amen” singer divorced his wife of almost two decades in 2010 and later accused her of cheating. The couple’s divorce had been anything but tidy as Randy Travis was still involved professionally with his ex-wife due to a management contract. Prior to his arrests in 2012, Randy Travis was sued by his ex for breach of contract.
Whatever the reasons for Randy Travis’ behavior back then, hopefully his family and his faith will help him make a full recovery. The new photos released on Twitter by one of his friends shows Randy Travis looking well.
Randy Travis has been a mainstay in country music since the early 1980s and has won multiple ACM, CMA and Grammy Awards as well as several Dove Awards for his contributions to the gospel music genre.
