Randy Travis suffered a stroke last summer, and since then, reports of his recovery have been mixed. Recent reports say the singer still isn’t able to speak.
Fans of course are still hopeful for a musical comeback. Friends, like Neal McCoy, say he may never fully recover when it comes to motor skills. Earlier in the year, Randy’s father said he was getting his speech back little by little.
So what is really going on? Randy’s rep told TMZ his inability to speak would not be permanent. He made an appearance at a Dolly Parton concert earlier this spring, and although he reportedly did not say anything to Dolly, there was no chatter about him not being able to speak.
Obviously it’s still unclear whether he’s able to speak or not, but his therapist says he could be back on stage in three years. Good luck Randy!!
