In a touching performance of ‘Forever And Ever, Amen,’ country stars join Randy Travis on the stage at the Grand Ole Opry to perform his iconic hit.
Randy Travis first broke onto the music scene in the 1980s. His deep and distinctive voice gave us hits such as ‘Deeper Than The Holler' and ‘Three Wooden Crosses.' But everything came to a screeching halt nearly six years ago when Randy almost lost his life after suffering a devastating stroke. It left him in a coma for 72 hours.
Even though he couldn't communicate, Randy could hear and understand everything that was going on around him. He even heard when the doctor's advised his family that recovery was slim and they should consider pulling the plug. Thankfully, he was able to give his wife, Mary, a sign and from that moment on, he fought to recover.
Randy Travis Celebrates 60th Birthday At The Grand Ole Opry
Today, the Grand Ole Opry is celebrating Randy's 60th birthday with a star-studded tribute. The entire night concluded with a special rendition of his song ‘Forever And Ever, Amen.'
"Oh, baby, I’m gonna love you forever
Forever and ever, amen
As long as old men sit and talk about the weather
As long as old women sit and talk about old men
If you wonder how long I’ll be faithful
I’ll be happy to tell you again
I’m gonna love you forever and ever
Forever and ever, amen"
Country artists such as Charles Esten, Josh Turner, Charlie Worsham all stand on stage and belt out the iconic lyrics. And at the very end, Randy Travis steps on stage and sings the famous final note. What a birthday celebration.
