Randy Travis uses AI to release new songs after a stroke.  

Randy Travis released new songs using AI for the first time after his stroke.  

According to the Associated Press, Travis and his wife, Mary Travis, allowed his record company to use AI to recreate his soulful voice for his current single, “Where That Came From,” released Friday.  

Randy Travis released nothing new in nearly a decade until last week.  

After being hospitalized with viral cardiomyopathy in July 2013, the “Forever and Ever, Amen” and “Deeper Than the Holler” singer had a stroke and developed aphasia, a brain illness that limits his speech.  

When Warner Music Nashville Co-President Cris Lacy suggested using AI to mimic the singer's voice, the Travises jumped at the chance.  

“Well, we were all over that,” Mary Travis told AP, “we were so excited.” 

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

The AI technology performed “Where That Came From,” a romantic ballad by Scotty Emerick and John Scott, using Randy Travis' 28-year catalog.
