Country music icon Randy Travis recently had a very special day. Travis was seen in the audience of the longest-running game show in history, The Price Is Right. While he was not a contestant on the show, Travis, his wife Mary, and pianist Jacob Tolliver were special guests of host Drew Carey in a taping of the show in Los Angeles.

Travis has said he is a longtime viewer and fan of The Price Is Right. He appeared in the front row, was given an official “Price is Right” name tag, went backstage, and took photos on “Bidders Row.” Travis shared a fun video of his experience on TikTok as well as photos on Instagram and fans loved how happy he looked.

Travis has stayed largely out of the public eye in the past decade after facing some health issues. The 64-year-old suffered from a stroke and congestive heart failure in 2013, which affected his brain. He was placed on life support and only given a one percent chance of survival after his lungs collapsed. Travis then had to have three tracheostomies, two brain surgeries and suffered from pneumonia three times.

For a while, he lost his ability to speak and sing. However, he did recover his voice slowly but surely and gave an emotional performance of “Amazing Grace” at his 2016 induction into the Country Music Hall of Fame. In 2019, he released a memoir called “Forever and Ever, Amen” with the help of author Ken Abraham.
