Unhappy Update: Randy Travis Suffers Stroke, Still in Critical Condition

(CNN) -- Country singer Randy Travis is hospitalized in critical condition with a viral heart infection, his publicist said Monday.

Travis, 54, was admitted to an unidentified Texas hospital on Sunday because of complications related to his "recently acquired viral cardiomyopathy," Travis spokesman Kirt Webster said in a written statement.

Travis had recently been on the road, performing in Detroit on June 28 and Chicago on June 29. He was set to do a show in Deadwood, South Dakota, on Wednesday.

He appeared well during business meetings on Friday and Saturday, Webster said. "Then on Sunday, it hit him."

Viral cardiomyopathy is a disorder where a virus attacks the muscles of the heart, causing the heart to beat slower, according to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention's website. In some cases, the heart can stop, it said.

"Viral cardiomyopathy can be caused by 30-plus different viruses, but it's almost impossible to pinpoint which virus it is," said Dr. Ramin Oskoui, a cardiologist and internal medicine specialist in Washington. "Hospitals use viral cardiomyopathy as a 'catch all' diagnosis."

Travis had a tough year in 2012 with arrests for assault and public intoxication, which earned him probation.

"To say that Mr. Travis' alcohol use exacerbated his problems would be pure speculation, but if someone told me alcohol played a role in his cardiac problems, I wouldn't be surprised," Oskoui said.

Travis was at the forefront of the "New Traditionalist" movement in the 1980s and 1990s, but he faded as the '90s wore on. He made a comeback after turning to gospel music in 1999. His song "Three Wooden Crosses" won song of the year in 2003 from both the Country Music Association and the Academy of Country Music.

As one of country music's top-selling artists, Travis has won seven Grammys, 10 Academy of Country Music awards and 10 American Music Award statuettes.

His best-known songs also include "Forever and Ever, Amen," "Diggin' Up Bones" and "Deeper Than the Holler."

My most favorite song from Randy is his song named "Too Much" from his duets album two years ago because my most favorite singer James Otto got to sing it with him! Go here to check it out!

God bless you and James and Randy always!!!

Randy Travis Gets Heart Device, Thanks Fans for Support
Jul 9, 2013
by Natalie Abrams



Country singer Randy Travis is reaching out to his fan after being hospitalized Sunday due to heart problems.

The Grammy winner, 54, was admitted to a Texas hospital Sunday after suffering complications from a recently acquired viral cardiomyopathy, a condition caused by a viral infection in the heart.



Travis' rep, Kirk Webster, denied reports that Travis had undergone heart surgery, but Webster did confirm that the singer had received an Impella peripheral left ventricular assist device, which the Mayo Clinic describes as a mechanical pump that helps send blood from a person's heart to the rest of the body.

Travis remained in critical condition as of Tuesday.



"We are very thankful to the fans for their love and support during this time," Travis said in a statement.

That's awful! I hope he gets well soon! He is supposed to do a concert on August 18th in Tacoma so it would be a shame if they have to cancel it. Sorry if that sounds insincere. I really do hope he gets better. I was kind of surprised when I heard he was coming here b/c I remember him doing concerts in Dallas when I lived there. I've never been to a country music concert but I bet they are fun!

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — Country music star Randy Travis suffered a stroke while at a Texas hospital and was in surgery late Wednesday, the singer's publicist said.

Publicist Kirt Webster said Wednesday night that the 54-year-old Travis suffered the stroke while he was being treated for congestive heart failure because of a viral illness.

Webster said Travis was undergoing surgery to relieve pressure on his brain. He remains in critical condition.

"His family and friends here with him at the hospital request your prayers and support," Webster said in a news release.

Earlier Wednesday, doctors said that Travis was showing signs of improvement but remained in critical condition with congestive heart failure because of a viral illness.

Drs. William Gray and Michael Mack of the Baylor Health Care System in Texas described Travis' condition and hospitalization in a video statement.

"His condition has stabilized, and he has shown signs of improvement," Mack said in the video. "On behalf of Mr. Travis' family, friends and associates, we would like to express our extreme gratitude for the overwhelming affection and support that Mr. Travis has received."

The Grammy Award-winning singer was in good health until three weeks before he was hospitalized, when he contracted a viral upper respiratory infection, Gray said.

The viral illness led to a weakened heart muscle that eventually worsened into heart failure.

Travis was admitted to Baylor Medical Center McKinney near his home in Tioga, about 60 miles north of Dallas, through the emergency room on Sunday. The singer underwent a procedure to have a pump inserted by catheter that helps increase blood flow before being transferred to The Heart Hospital Baylor Plano.

The North Carolina-born Travis is a traditional country purist who is a pivotal figure in the genre best known for his hits "Forever and Ever, Amen" and "Three Wooden Crosses." His Warner Bros. debut album "Storms of Life" sold 3 million copies and helped return country music to its roots.

The illness comes as Travis has been trying to put his life back together after a series of embarrassing public incidents involving alcohol. Travis pleaded guilty to driving while intoxicated in January following an arrest last year and received two years of probation and a $2,000 fine. He was required to spend at least 30 days at an alcohol treatment facility and complete 100 hours of community service.

He recently made several public appearances, including a spot on the Country Music Association Festival's nightly concert lineup and a poignant performance at George Jones' funeral.

His peers and fans have been watching Travis' progress closely.

"I always feel like he's part of our family, he's in our family," Keith Urban said Wednesday morning. "And I was one of those guys in Australia that bought 'Storms of Life' and became a Randy fan very quickly in late '80s, and I really feel for him right now."

Randy Travis Discharged from Hospital
July 31, 2013
by Robyn Ross



Randy Travis has been discharged from the hospital after suffering a stroke earlier this month. "Thanks to all the fans and friends for your continued prayers and support as Randy continues on the road to recovery," Travis' fiancée, Mary Davis, said in a statement.

Travis, 54, was admitted to the hospital on July 7 for idiopathic cardiomyopathy and was put on life support for 48 hours. During that time, Travis suffered a stroke and had to undergo emergency neurosurgery.

Now that he's been discharged, the country musician has been relocated to a physical therapy facility.
