    Since his stroke in 2013, country music superstar Randy Travis has had a hard time speaking in sentences.

    "He's fortunate to even be here, " said his wife, Mary Davis.

    Mary is always by Randy's side. She helps with everything from rehabilitation to TV interviews.

    "People are like, this is not what you signed up for is it, " she recalled. "I say, 'Yes it is.  I signed up for it, whatever it is. Through thick and thin, better or worse, sickness and health, yes, I signed up for this.'"
