A new TMZ reports claim that RANDY TRAVIS is unable to speak as a result of a stroke from last summer.

Those close to Randy are hoping for a full return to the stage within three years with the help of a therapist. Randy allegedly can’t form a sentence, and it’s unclear if he can follow a conversation. He was last spotted in public late last month backstage at a DOLLY PARTON concert at the Winstar Casino in Oklahoma.


Randy’s cover of “Amazing Grace” at GEORGE JONE’S funeral last April was among his last public performances before he was hospitalized with a heart infection last July. Doctors performed emergency brain surgery three days following Randy’s admission after he suffered a stroke at the HeartHospital at Baylor Plano in Texas.


Love, thoughts and prayers with Randy and the family. (TMZ)
