Randy Travis was honoured for his legacy: 'What country music is all about' 

A concert called 'A Heroes and Friends Tribute to Randy Travis' will honour the 2013 aphasia patient. 

Randy Travis is a country music legend, and the industry is ready to honour him and raise awareness of a health issue that transformed his life.

At "A Heroes and Friends Tribute to Randy Travis," Travis, noted for "Hard Rock Bottom of Your Heart," "Deeper Than the Holler," and "Forever and Ever, Amen," will be honoured. 

Before his October show, the musician and his wife, Mary, chatted to Fox News Digital about his stellar career. 

After suffering a major stroke in 2013 that left him with aphasia, Randy said it means "a lot" that so many country singers are honouring his career.Mary spoke for her spouse and said, "He values it. Just knowing that he crafted music that lasts."

"When you can't sing the music, someone else will step in and perform it for you, and some of the great artists say, ‘Hey, I want to be one of those that sing your music’ when they have a complete repertoire of their own music.  

But I just want to give this time and energy to singing your music since it changed my life," she said as Randy smiled and nodded. 

Mary called Randy's amazing discography "the anthem of country music," telling Fox News Digital "that's what his songs kind of accomplish for folks. They transport people to a specific time and place."

To receive a tribute signifies you did well. That mattered somewhere. We shouldn't forget that."
