Randy Travis marries Mary Davis


Congratulations has to go out to country superstar Randy Travis as we just learned he has married his fiancee Mary Davis. Life has not been easy for Randy for the last few years as he has had brushes with the law starting in 2012 and had a major stroke in 2013. Since then, his fiancee Mary Davis has stuck with him as he has regained some strength and made a very few public appearances.

Everyone was surprised when Travis showed up at the 2015 Academy of Country Music Award this past Sunday evening, but what we all didn't know at the time was that he was married. In fact, he and Davis were quietly married on March 21.

It is great to see Randy Travis out in public again and we wish him much joy in his marriage and for a continued recovery from his stroke.

When Randy Travis turned up at the 2015 ACM Awards, it was a joyous occasion for fans. But the country icon has even more happy news: he married his fiancee, Mary Davis, on March 21.

A representative for Travis confirmed the news to People magazine on Monday (April 20). According to he Cooke County clerk’s office, the 55-year-old singer and Davis were married by Pastor Tommy Nelson from Denton, Texas.

Davis has stood by Travis through a long list of woes, beginning with some legal problems in 2012. The country legend also suffered a debilitating stroke in 2013 and has been slowly battling back to health ever since. Public appearances have been rare, and the singer has not spoken in public since his stroke. At the ACMs on Sunday, Travis simply stood and acknowledged the cheering fans after being introduced by Lee Brice, who performed his classic song, “Forever and Ever, Amen.”

Travis was so touched by the outpouring of love that he posted a heartfelt letter on his website, saying, “It has been a hard fought and miraculous journey since my stroke two years ago. I have gained a greater understanding of God’s grace and how quickly events can change us.”

He said his now-wife opened and read each letter from fans as he worked toward recovery. Those letters “brought me through the darkest of days,” Travis writes. “None of us are worthy of the immense outpouring of support shown to me and I consider each of my fans, a friend. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.”
