Obviously Randy has been unable to record of perform since suffering a stroke back in 2013. But that doesn’t mean that he’s done releasing new music.
As you can imagine, Randy has quite the catalog of music that he recorded but was never able to release.
And now he’s ready for the world to hear it.
During a press conference announcing A Heroes & Friends Tribute To Randy Travis, an all-star tribute concert coming to Huntsville, Alabama later this year, Randy was asked about the potential for getting new Randy Travis music.
And according to Randy and his wife Mary, the chances of hearing some of that new music from the vault are pretty good:
“The chances are 100%…
There is a 100% chance of more Randy Travis music from the vault that has never been heard. It’s already been mixed, everything is ready to go…
We’re just waiting on the announcement of it. It’s a whole other album of Randy Travis music.”
Of course Randy has dropped a few new singles since his stroke, including the incredible “One In a Row” back in 2019, but this will be the first album of original music that we’ve gotten from the star since he was forced to stop recording.
Since his illness, Randy’s served as an ambassador of sorts to country music, staying visible and promoting new artists that are carrying on the traditional country charts. And he’s made several appearances onstage, including at a tribute concert earlier this year honoring the legendary George Jones.
I can’t wait to hear that unreleased Randy Travis gold.
And I just hope that some of the newer artists give it a listen when it drops. Because country music could use more Randy Travis in its sound.
