Randy Travis has released a new single from the Warner Archives, called “Lead Me Home,” an inspiring, banjo-leading bluegrass melody.
On the upbeat single, Travis takes his traditional country roots and blends the sound with bluegrass influences. Following “One in a Row,” the latest track is one of a select few singles to be released since Travis suffered a massive stroke in 2013, which has affected his ability to perform.
“Lead Me Home” was recorded years before the stroke but was never widely released to audiences, only offered as an exclusive on iTunes. Travis has depended on his wife Mary through his health journey.
“Mary was having to make life-or-death decisions about my situation all on her own, trusting God to guide her,” said Randy Travis in his memoir, “Forever and Ever, Amen: A Memoir of Music, Faith, and Braving the Storms of Life.”

Travis’ memoir recently won AudioFile Magazine’s coveted “Earphones Award” for the audiobook narration by Rory Feek. With the help of author, Ken Abraham, and Travis’ wife Mary, the memoir recounts the singer’s journey of perseverance and redemption.
