In order to commemorate the 25th anniversary of Storms of Life, the album that was released in 1986 and was responsible for the neo-traditionalist trend in modern country music, Randy Travis filmed an intimate acoustic concert in 2011. According to Kyle Lehning, Travis’ longtime producer, no one would have anticipated the film would become “the last live recording we did.”

They would have been completely surprised. On the other hand, Travis was admitted to a hospital in the Dallas region in 2013 with problems of viral cardiomyopathy. This occurred at the same time that the tape was being prepped for release, which did not take place at that time.



He was unable to play the guitar or perform after he suffered a major stroke, which required him to have brain surgery. He also lost the capacity to perform. He was likewise restricted in his speech. Mary, his wife, was informed by the medical professionals that he had just a one or two percent chance of surviving.

The life of the cherished singer, who is now 63 years old, is being commemorated in a new documentary that was constructed on top of the material that was recorded eleven years ago. Randy Travis: More Life combines that concert with the rest of the story, which includes Travis’ numerous medical emergencies that were close to being fatal, his extensive rehabilitation (which included treatments such as neuro-acupuncture, hyperbaric chamber treatment, and stem cell injections), and his retirement on his ranch near Tioga, Texas.



You are able to rent the documentary on streaming platforms, or you may view it for free on Travis’ YouTube channel, where episodes will be uploaded every two weeks until July 7th. Travis, who has won seven Grammys, is able to comprehend everything that is going on around him; nevertheless, he is no longer able to speak in entire phrases, and so Mary is the one who does the talking for him. (The couple tied the knot in 2015, following Randy’s divorce from Elizabeth “Lib” Hatcher in 2010. During their 19-year marriage, she was the one who secured his recording contract and was the driving force behind his career.)



During the course of our discussion, Randy shows his agreement by smiling, nodding his head, and adding a few words here and there to punctuate the conversation. His eyes light up especially brightly whenever Mary describes the outpouring of support from admirers that has occurred after the tragedy.

The fans of country music are among the most devoted of any musical genre, and Nashville’s most prominent musicians have always made themselves available to their fans, which has resulted in the formation of a familial connection between the artists and their fans. Mary recalls that her sister-in-law would tell her, “I need to bring you mail,” while they were still in the hospital. “I need to bring you mail.”



As a matter of fact, she would bring these large blue storage containers, and they would be completely full. Two or three days later, she would bring another one, and by that time, it would be completely full. Even though Randy remained in his coma state for a significant amount of time, I made sure to read each and every one of those letters to him while we were here in the hospital. They were a source of assistance and inspiration for us.

The couple also received phone calls from Garth Brooks, Jamey Johnson, and Charlie Daniels, who has since passed away. All of these individuals expressed their concern for Randy and offered their support. A number of the Oak Ridge Boys made their way to the medical facility. And Josh Turner, who had grown up imitating the voice of Travis’ Storms of Life and who performs “T.I.M.E.” with him in the documentary, gave an impromptu concert for Randy in his hospital room while Jeffrey Turner’s wife, Jennifer, took Mary out for some much-needed time away from the hospital.
