Randy Travis is a country music superstar, and his music has touched the lives of millions. However, we haven’t heard from him in a few years, as he has been suffering from a life threatening stroke and has been moving through the rehabilitation process.
However, at last weekend’s Academy of Country Music Awards, he made a surprise appearance. We’re happy to report he is doing well, and he just married his girlfriend, Mary Davis! Fantastic news!
Randy Travis is married!
Travis’ rep has confirmed that the country superstar married Mary Davis on March 21.
The Cooke County clerk’s office in Texas told PEOPLE that Travis, 55, and Davis were married by Pastor Tommy Nelson from Denton, Texas.
The legend – who suffered a debilitating stroke nearly two years ago – has been filled with wonderful surprises of late.
Travis made a surprise appearance Sunday at the Academy of Country Music Awards, where he quietly stood and acknowledged the thunderous applause from the audience following Lee Brice’s introduction of him after playing a verse of Travis’ hit “Forever and Ever, Amen.”
