Randy Travis‘ health remains in question, with some saying he is still unable to speak. But regardless of his physical condition, the singer is feeling well enough to release ‘Influence Vol. 2: The Man I Am’ next month.

The album follows last year’s ‘Influence Vol. 1: The Man I Am,’ which included songs by Merle Haggard, George Jones, Waylon Jennings and Lefty Frizzell, among others.

“We had such a great time putting together ‘Influence Vol. 1,’ but there were still so many musical heroes of yesteryear that I learned from and wanted to honor,” Travis explains in a press release. “We had no choice but to release a second volume. The ‘Influence’ that the older, great ones had on me, and the ‘Influence’ that I may, somehow, have on the ones that come along after me, is God’s way of allowing us to pay it forward. It is my prayer answered — and, His will done — it is what makes me ‘the man I am.’”

It’s unclear when the Grand Ole Opry member recorded the project, but his father, Harold Traywick, insists fans haven’t heard the last from his talented son.

“He’s getting his voice back now, little by little,” Traywick says, while another source says Travis is “anxious to get back to work and connect with his fans.” Those close to Travis insist he is getting better each day, but he still has a lot of work to do.

“He hasn’t plateaued in his recovery, which is always a big fear,” an unnamed source reveals. “He really faces a long, tough battle.”

Travis was hospitalized in July of 2013 for viral cardiomyopathy, where he subsequently suffered a stroke.

Influences Vol. 2: The Man I Am’ will be released on Aug. 19. The entire project is available now for pre-order at iTunes. Fans who pre-order the project will receive ‘Don’t Worry ‘Bout Me’ as an instant download, with two more songs available each week following the pre-order, including ‘Only Daddy That’ll Walk The Line’ on July 29 and ‘That’s The Way Love Goes’ on Aug. 5. In addition, fans who pre-order will be able to download the full album online on Aug. 12.
