Country music star Randy Travis is still struggling with his speech nearly a year after he suffered a stroke.

The “On the Other Hand” singer was struck down by a debilitating stroke in July last year and had psychical therapy to help restore his motor functions.

Although he has made progress and can now walk with a cane, it has emerged that he is still struggling to talk.

Editors at TMZ.com report Travis has not regained his speech, almost a year later.

The singer’s representative confirmed the news and added that a therapist hopes Travis will recover and make a return to the stage in the coming years.
