After battling health issues, Randy Travis was feted for his illustrious career: "the essence of country music."  

The country music community is prepared to honor Randy Travis, one of the most iconic country music artists of all time,   

while also raising awareness about a health crisis that had a profound impact on his life.  

At an event titled "A Heroes and Friends Tribute to Randy Travis," Travis will be recognized for his popular songs such as "Hard Rock Bottom of Your Heart,"  

The singer, accompanied by his wife Mary, chatted with Fox News Digital about his legendary career in the lead-up to the October show.  

Many country singers are uniting to pay tribute to Randy, which means "a lot" to him because of his restricted speech caused by aphasia, which he sustained from a severe stroke in 2013.  

She went on to explain, "It means a lot to him," as Mary often does when speaking on behalf of her husband.  

For the simple reason that it's reassuring to know that his music has endured.  

As a tribute artist, you'll have people sing your songs when you're unable to do so, and when they do, you might hear some of the best musicians in the business say things like,
