Country legend's first new music since stroke uses AI to restore voice.  

Randy Travis released his first new music in almost a decade after a stroke.  

Travis, 65, released “What That Came From From” Friday.   

According to Travis' wife Mary Travis, the acoustic ballad showcases his soulful voice supplemented by AI.  

“‘What if we could take Randy’s voice and recreate it using AI?’” Mary said the Associated Press, recalling Warner Music Nashville co-president Cris Lacy's proposal to Randy, who grinned.   

“All I wanted since the stroke was to hear that voice again.”  

Mary helps the Country Music Hall of Famer in interviews today because aphasia inhibits his speech and singing, according to the AP.   

Randy was hospitalized with viral cardiomyopathy and had a stroke in 2013. He had to retrain his walking, speaking, and spelling.  

Randy Travis' vocal stems were utilized to reproduce his voice on “Where That Came From,” a song composed by Scotty Emerick and John Scott Sherrill that Kyle Lehning co-produced and kept for years.
