It's been almost a year since Randy Travis suffered a stroke, after battling viral cardiomyopathy and pneumonia, and it seems the singer still has a long road of recovery ahead of him.

After making a few public appearances earlier this year, including a stop at Dolly Parton's concert in Oklahoma earlier this month, and visiting with his good friend, Neal McCoy before one of his concerts in February, fans were hopeful that the 'Three Wooden Crosses' singer would soon be returning to the stage.

Unfortunately, new information suggests that Travis' recovery might take longer than originally thought. According to TMZ, the 55-year-old is still unable to speak, and doctors speculate his recovery could take as long as three years.

Still, a therapist reportedly says that a full recovery is not impossible for Travis, and his family seems to agree.

“He’s getting his voice back now, little by little,” Travis’ father, Harold Traywick, says. An undisclosed source adds that the singer is “anxious to get back to work and connect with his fans," and that his "doctors are extremely pleased with his progress.”

The Boot continues to extend our well wishes to Randy Travis for a complete recovery.
