DENISON, TX (KTVI)-Country music star Randy Travis made a rare public appearance this past week after suffering a stroke last year. Travis and his fiancée, Mary Davis, attended a charity banquet for Four Rivers Outreach at North Texas Regional Airport Thursday night.

Davis says Travis can barely speak and has been working hard on his recovery since his stroke in July 2013.

Davis says, "We're learning words and phrases, learning to sing. Of course, the music and the songs come easy for him but just the enunciation of words. But he's working on it. He's got the heart of a warrior and he doesn't stop."

Doctors say Travis’ stroke was a complication from a heart problem. His fiancée says he attends daily physical and occupational therapy.
