Randy Travis is recovering, albeit slowly, from his massive health issues of last year.
People.com reports that he's still recuperating at his ranch in Texas and is determined to make a comeback.
Friends say he's in physical therapy and is more like himself these days, but still has some difficulty with his speech.
Neal McCoy saw him recently at a charity show in Dallas. He says, "[Randy] has come a long way and has got a long way to go. He's still struggling, but getting strong."
Randy was preparing for a return to performing and recording last summer when he suffered heart problems, followed by a stroke, brain surgery and pneumonia.
The issue of People featuring Randy's story of recovery is available on Friday (3/7/14).
