When Randy Travis suffered a fatal stroke, his wife Mary Davis stood beside him.
Randy Randy Travis, aka Bruce Traywick, is a multi-talented individual. He is a country and gospel music singer, songwriter, guitarist, and actor from Marshville, North Carolina.
Travis is also a happily married man, with Mary Davis, who is very supportive and kind. Despite the fact that they don’t have any children, the two have found a way to share happiness.
Davis, who is also the singer’s second wife, was there for him when he suffered a major stroke in July 2013.
His Stroke Came Perilously Close to Killing Him
After suffering from congestion a few days ago, the gospel music performer suffered a severe stroke “as a consequence of his congestive heart failure.”
The stroke had impacted the entire central portion of his left brain, and his heart had stopped totally at one point. Doctors quickly put him on life support and put him into an induced coma to preserve his brain.
Doctors later advised his then-fiancée, Davis, to consider removing him from life support because he only had a 1% chance of surviving.
Davis remained by his side.
Davis was the one who believed Travis could recover and asked the physicians to operate on him.
In April 2020, she told Country Thang Daily, “Even in his semi-coma state, he squeezed my hand, and he laid there, and I simply saw this tear that fell, and it was one tear at a time.” “I just went back to the physicians and told them, ‘We’re fighting this,'” says the patient.
Following that, the 62-year-old singer had brain surgery and spent six months in the hospital. Although the procedure saved his life, he lost his voice and had to relearn how to walk.
He still has trouble speaking, and his movement and use of the right side of his body have deteriorated.
In October 2016, when attending his induction into the Country Music Hall of Fame, he demonstrated amazing strength by performing a performance of Amazing Grace.
In May 2019, he released a memoir titled Forever and Ever, Amen: A Memoir of Music, Faith, and Braving the Storms of Life.
Travis’ life is chronicled in the book as “a fascinating behind-the-scenes look at dizzying prosperity and the remarkable journey to healing.”
Davis, his wife, stayed by his side during all of his post-stroke endeavors and accomplishments.
They’ve been married for more than six years.
Travis and his wife Davis married on March 21, 2015, in a little ceremony.
Since 2012, the two have been together.
In early 2013, they got engaged.
Travis and Davis had previously been married to different women. From 1991 through 2010, the Grammy Award-winning singer was married to his manager and wife Elizabeth Hatcher-Travis.
Travis filed a petition for dissolution of marriage on October 28, 2010, and the ex-couple split up. A day later, the divorce was formalized.
Davis was married to Dr. Ritchie Beougher, a Dallas-based cosmetic dentist. With her ex-husband, she has two children: a daughter named Cavenaugh and a son named Raleigh Beougher.
