Randy Travis performs “Amazing Grace” 3 years after suffering life-threatening stroke

NASHVILLE, Tenn. – Three years after suffering a life-threatening stroke, country singer Randy Travis sang during his induction into the Country Music Hall of Fame.

It was one of those “wow” moments in music.

After being inducted into the Hall of Fame by Garth Brooks, Travis, 57, performed “Amazing Grace.”

Being able to hear a voice many feared had been stilled by his 2013 stroke revived by years of rehabilitation and therapy brought a stunned crowd to tears.

His wife, Mary Davis-Travis, said her husband “stared death in the face, but death blinked.”

She said he was proof of a miracle.

Travis was inducted into the Country Music Hall of Fame along with fiddler Charlie Daniels and record producer Fred Foster.
