Randy Travis Age: Randy Randy Travis is the stage name of Bruce Traywick, an American country music and gospel music singer, songwriter, guitarist, and actor who is most recognized for his work in the genres of country and gospel music.
The singer-songwriter was active from 1978 to 2013, when a stroke rendered him unable of performing. He recorded 20 studio albums and charted more than 50 singles on the Billboard Hot Country Songs charts, with sixteen of them reaching number one on the list.
Travis is widely regarded as a seminal character in the history of country music. He first gained prominence in the mid-1980s with the publication of his album Storms of Life, which went on to sell more than four million copies worldwide.
The record cemented his position as a prominent player in the neotraditional country music genre. Travis followed up his critically acclaimed debut album with a run of platinum and multi-platinum releases. Since the 1980s, he has been recognized for his distinctive baritone voice, which he delivers in a traditional style, which has propelled him to the top of the country music charts.
Travis’s chart success began to wane in the mid-1990s, and he was unable to maintain it. When he left Warner Bros. Records in 1997, he signed with DreamWorks Records, which later became Word Records, where he began releasing more Christian songs. Travis went on to win numerous Dove Awards, including Country Album of the Year five times, despite the fact that he only had one more number-one country song after the transition, “Three Wooden Crosses,” in his new career.
A star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame was awarded to Travis after selling more than 25 million records and winning seven Grammy Awards, six CMA Awards, eleven ACM Awards, ten American Music Awards, eight GMA Dove Awards, and a star on The Voice. Travis was inducted into the Country Music Hall of Fame in 2016, which was his first year in the organization.
Travis, 62, was born on May 4, 1959, and is best known as a country music and gospel music singer, songwriter, guitarist, and actor in the United States.
Despite having a great music career, Travis has not released any new albums since 2014, which is largely due to the significant health issues he has suffered from over the years, according to his official website.
After years of battling with congestive heart disease, the country artist was famously struck down by a major stroke in 2013.
He spent the most of his time in hospitals in Tennessee and Texas, and as a result, he had to have two brain operations.
Trav was also intubated on three consecutive occasions after contracting pneumonia on two of the instances.
By November 2014, he had made some progress, and he was able to walk short distances and play the guitar again. Randy Travis, the 61-year-old heartthrob who revolutionized country music in the 1980s, has remained relatively quiet over the previous ten years, despite his continued popularity.
Even while many believed Randy had just retired, it turns out that he has been suffering from a variety of health difficulties for the better part of the previous ten years.
