Randy Travis Stuns Country Music Hall Of Fame Crowd by Singing ‘Amazing Grace’

Three years after a stroke threatened to silence his legendary voice, country singer Randy Travis brought the audience at Sunday’s Country Music Hall of Fame induction ceremony to tears by leading a sing-along rendition of “Amazing Grace.”

Travis’ wife, Mary Davis-Travis, spoke about the numerous procedures and operations the Grammy-winning singer underwent to save his life and a six-month stay in the hospital after a viral infection caused his stroke in 2013.

Travis was honored for being the first country artist whose debut album (“Storms of Life”) went platinum in its first year. He ushered in a wave of neo-traditional singers like Alan Jackson, Clint Black and Brooks in the 1990s.
