Since his stroke, Travis has been largely unable to speak or sing. However, at a private funeral in early February of 2016 and his Country Music Hall of Fame induction in mid-October of 2016, Travis surprised those in attendance by singing a bit of “Amazing Grace;" he also took part in the opening medley at the 2016 CMA Awards, and has made numerous appearances at concerts and other events.
