GOOD NEWS Cop Whose House Burned Down Gets Christmas Surprise From Randy Travis
Though he is still recovering from a life-threatening stroke he suffered three years ago, country singer Randy Travis mustered up the strength to spread some joy this holiday season.
Travis surprised a Gainesville, Texas, police officer with a new guitar after the officer lost most of his possessions in a house fire two weeks ago.
Officer Keith Bartlett, an avid guitar player, received a call of a suspicious vehicle on Christmas Day, and after finding no car, he returned to police headquarters.
Little did he know that the call was a setup. When he returned, his family and Travis' family had surprised him with the new guitar, signed by Travis.
Bartlett and Travis met a few years ago after Bartlett responded to a robbery on Travis' ranch.
"Surprised isn't even the word for it," Bartlett told NBCDFW. "These are amazing people."
