Randy Travis' Wife Mary Helps Him Speak at Country Music Hall of Fame Induction Announcement Three Years After
By Alex Ungerman
Tuesday was a big night for Randy Travis.
Nearly three years after suffering a massive stroke, the music legend struggled to speak at the 2016 Country Music Hall Of Fame Inductees Announcement with his wife, Mary Davis-Travis, by his side, who eventually took the mic to help Randy finish his speech, and recounted heartbreaking details of the 56-year-old's near-death experience.
"They really said there was no hope -- go ahead and pull the plug," Mary emotionally shared with the crowd while standing next to Randy on stage. "I went to his bedside and I said, 'Baby, you've got to give me some more fight.'"
Randy and his longtime fiancée married in March 2015, ET confirmed at the time. The singer-songwriter has had a lengthy recovery process that has kept him mostly out of the public eye since being hospitalized in Dallas, Texas after his 2013 stroke.
