Randy Travis Hospitalized and in Critical Condition
Randy Travis has been hospitalized and is in critical condition after complications from a heart ailment. The singer was admitted to a Texas hospital on Sunday (July 7).
According to his publicist, Travis was recently diagnosed with a viral cardiomyopathy and the hospitalization is a result of complications. According to WiseGeek.org, a viral cardiomyopathy is a virus that weakens the heart. The severity can vary, and further details about Travis' case were not made available.
The health scare comes at a time when the 'Three Wooden Crosses' singer seemed poised to be bouncing back after a number of legal and personal struggles. He'd pledged to give up drinking late last year, and he looked revitalized at the 2013 CMT Music Awards in June.
