In 2013 country singer Randy Travis suffered a massive stroke, which paralyzed his right side and damaged an area of his brain that controls speech and language. He has not quite recovered the ability to sing, but working with singer James DuPre and a computer program that creates an AI-generated version of his voice, Travis and his longtime producer Kyle Lehning have created a new song, “Where That Came From,” that captures Randy’s country heart. Lee Cowan reports.

In addition to “I Told You So,” Travis’s hit records as a songwriter include “Promises,” “Heroes and Friends,” “The Box” and his collaborations with Alan Jackson: “Forever Together,” “Better Class of Losers,” “I’d Surrender All,” and “She’s Got the Rhythm (and I Got the Blues).”Travis is noted as a key figure in the neotraditional country movement, a return to more traditional sounds within the genre following the country pop crossovers of the early 1980s. He is considered an influence on later generations of country singers, and is noted for his baritone singing voice.
