At Grand Ole Opry, Randy Travis celebrates his 60th birthday.

Randy Travis, who turned 60 on Saturday (May 4), made a rare public appearance that evening at Nashville's Grand Ole Opry, where he smiled broadly and performed the final "Amen" of his signature song "Forever and Ever, Amen."

The poignant scene was reminiscent of one from the 2016 CMA Awards, when an all-star ensemble of performers handed him the mike during the show's opening medley, allowing him to sing the last notes.

Travis was admitted into the Grand Ole Opry in 1986.

 Six years ago, the multi-Grammy Award-winning singer suffered a devastating stroke that hampered his speech, mobility, and singing ability. 

He's doing lot better today, although his performances are still few and far between.

He does, however, make regular appearances out and about to support other performers, sometimes even joining them on stage to say hi.

 The country legend has written a new book titled "Forever and Ever, Amen: 

A Memoir of Music, Faith, and Braving the Storms of Life," which will be released on May 14. The book looks back at the significant highs and lows of his life, including his rise to fame and the downward spiral that eventually led to his stroke and long recovery.
