Randy Travis Debuts ‘Don’t ‘Worry ‘Bout Me’ Video
Randy Travis has released a new music video for his song 'Don't Worry 'Bout Me,' but the singer doesn't actually appear in the clip.
The song is the same classic Travis sound we've all come to know and love. Instead of the singer making a cameo in his video, it's a beautiful country landscape with a young girl enjoying the view. She's alone for the majority of the video, taking in the sights until eventually, we see cowboy boots coming to greet her and the couple embraces.
The song and video come a little over a year following Travis' stroke and heart failure, which many thought could end his career. Since then, rumors have swirled about his recovery and if he'll ever return to music. Travis' friend and business partner James Hilliard assures that the star is on the road to where he needs to be. Hilliard co-owns Clark's Outpost BBQ with the country great.
Hillard says Travis recently came into the restaurant to eat and was able to walk on his own. He was even able to say a couple of words during his visit. "He wasn't jogging, I mean," Hillard tells NBC 5. "But he was up and walking and seemed to be getting better, you know. He's a fighter, and he's pushing himself a little too much. But from six months ago, it's leaps and bounds."
Hillard also reveals that Travis is even riding horses again. He takes them out on his farm, which is near the restaurant. His business parter knows that if anyone can make a comeback, it'll be Travis.
Explains the source, "There were rumors that he'd never come back or anything, but if somebody can, it's somebody like him, who's driven."
'Don't Worry 'Bout Me' appears on Travis' forthcoming new album, 'Influence Vol. 2: The Man I Am,' which hits Aug. 19.
See Randy Travis as a Kid!
