Randy Travis Embraces AI

Musicians across genres have spoken out against the use of AI as the groundbreaking technology becomes more common. Garth Brooks and Dolly Parton both shared their opinions on using artificial intelligence in music. Lainey Wilson addressed Congress earlier this year about the dangers of AI.

But one artist is embracing AI completely. Randy Travis just released his first new recording since he suffered a stroke over a decade ago. The stroke robbed him of his ability to walk, speak, and sing, though he has recovered slightly.

With the help of AI, he just topped the charts with “Where That Came From.”

More Life Tour

In addition to returning to the studio, the “Storms Of Life” singer returned to the stage for a handful of shows for his More Life tour. The shows celebrate the singer’s iconic career. While he can’t sing the songs himself, he gets help from his long-time band and singer, James Dupré, whose previously recorded vocals were the bones of Travis’ new AI-generated song.

It was at a tour stop last month that one of the singer’s fans shared how he saved his life.

Randy Travis Credited For Saving A Fan’s Life

One of Randy Travis’ millions of fans went to the venue on a tour stop to check out the merch table. Not being able to afford a ticket to see the singer, the fan hoped to at least get some memorabilia. The merchandise manager, Terry Tyson, shared the story on his Facebook.

The fan approached the table and inquired about the cheapest item. Unfortunately, he couldn’t even afford that. But Tyson couldn’t turn away a fan, so he gifted the man a can koozie. The fan opened up about how Randy Travis saved his life.

“He began to tell us how he was at the lowest point in his life and contemplating suicide when he heard Randy Travis singing ‘Three Wooden Crosses’ on the radio and how that particular moment changed his mind over the lyrics below.

‘It’s not what you take when you leave this world behind you; it’s what you leave behind you when you go.’”

According to Terry Tyson, those lyrics made the man realize he wanted to live. In a twist of fate, he happened to run into Randy Travis as he was leaving and was able to get an autograph!
