Randy Travis sings at TV taping in Fort Worth Stockyards

Country music star Randy Travis was singing on stage in Fort Worth on Tuesday, nearly four years after he almost died from a stroke.

The singer, who lives near Denton, disappeared from the scene for a while -- but now he's showing his determination.

The seven-time Grammy Award-winning singer was at Lil Red's Longhorn Saloon to record a segment for The Penny Gilley Show on RFD TV.

"You just don't give up. God doesn't read the medical reports,” said wife Mary Travis.

Travis can't talk because of the stroke, but he can sing a little. Going on stage takes a lot of courage, but the singer is determined to give others inspiration. He's also started the Randy Travis Foundation to help with early detection and rehabilitation.

Mary says her husband has never stopped fighting to get stronger.

"I think it was one of the Oakridge Boys who said God’s not ready for you and the devil don't want you,” Mary said. “Fortunate to still be here and still fighting. Hope we can give other people hope."
