FAVORITE COUNTRY SINGER MEETS RESIDENT TRAVIS, RANDY 2

Muriel Edwards, a patient at Life Care Center of Jefferson City, had an unforgettable experience when she met her favorite country musician, Randy Travis.

While Muriel was in rehabilitation at the facility, her counselors discovered that she was easily Randy Travis’s “number-one fan.” So, occupational therapy assistant Zoe Moonwood gave Muriel Randy’s book, “Forever and Ever, Amen,” which quickly became a prized possession that Muriel would never give up, despite her eyesight problems.

Later, Karoline Van Horn, an occupational therapy assistant, gave Muriel a smart speaker for Christmas and showed her how to use it to play Randy Travis whenever she wanted. However, her speaker did not always play Randy Travis when she desired it to. On various instances, the device played tunes similar to Randy Travis’s, but for Muriel, they lacked the charm of his sound.



RANDY

It didn’t take long for the therapists and therapy aides to realize Muriel couldn’t get enough of Randy Travis — and that only one thing could completely satisfy her passion of his music: a trip to see and hear him live!

Karoline surprised Muriel with Randy Travis concert tickets, and she, her husband, and Muriel’s son all went to the show in Pigeon Forge, Tennessee.

However, Karoline did not believe that hearing Randy and seeing him live would be enough for Muriel, a dedicated fan. So, she and the others whisked Muriel backstage to see the country legend in person! Karoline had contacted Randy’s agent, who had connected her with Randy’s wife, Mary Travis.

Mary asked Muriel to wait a few minutes until the other backstage attendees had had their turn to meet and photograph Randy, so that Muriel could spend quality time with the troubadour.



Randy and Muriel struck up an instant connection and spoke for an extended period of time. Muriel told him she knew he’d be a success after seeing him as Randy Traywick on The Ralph Emery Show in 1984. Before they left ways, Randy took Muriel’s hand and expressed his gratitude for her visit.

Randy, like Muriel, has encountered numerous health issues in recent years. He had a major stroke in 2013, aged 54, that nearly killed him and left him unable to speak or walk.

RANDY

Randy is not only speaking and walking, but also singing and touring, thanks to physical, occupational, and speech treatments, as well as an unwavering determination! And his songs continue to inspire individuals like Muriel who are facing and conquering their own health challenges.



Muriel described seeing and meeting Randy as a “once-in-a-lifetime” experience, and she thanked everyone who helped her have this unique occasion. Muriel has images, tales, and experiences to share from that wonderful day.
