Though he’s been very quiet during his period of recovery, Randy Travis was actually in attendance at Dolly Parton’s Thackerville, Okla., show on Saturday, May 31, and seemed to be in good spirits.

Dolly discovered the country star was in the crowd and promptly acknowledged him with a shout-out.

“There are some people you just love and admire for their talents,” she said from the stage. “Tonight, one of those people are here. I actually think he is hiding somewhere way back there or dressed up like Kenny Rogers. But anyway, Randy Travis is here. So wherever you are, I hope you are enjoying the show.”

Randy hung around after the show and spent time with Dolly and fellow singer Janie Fricke.

“Randy was in such great spirits and looked great,” said Janie. “To see how happy he was to be at Dolly’s show, and up and walking was just wonderful!”

It’s an encouraging sign of progress for the “Forever and Ever, Amen” singer, who endured a scary series of health troubles last summer, including a stroke and a viral infection that led to heart failure.

In late 2013, Randy’s longtime label released Influence Vol. 1: The Man I Am, a collection Randy recorded with his touring band of songs by artists who influenced him.
