Randy Travis is in a Texas hospital listed in critical condition due to a diagnosis of cardiomyopathy. After at least three alcohol related incidences in 2012 leading to arrests, last November Travis’s spokesperson at the country music awards said that Randy was completely off alcohol with plans to stay sober. The above picture was taken last November at the country music award and Travis appeared to be very ill.
Travis’s PR firm says, “The Grammy winner is suffering from complications of recently acquired viral cardiomyopathy. Travis was admitted into the medical facility yesterday.”
Viral cardiomyopathy is a viral infection of the heart that causes enlargement of the heart and increases risk of heart attacks.
Randy has had a very difficult life the past few years. I hope his demons have not gotten the best of him. Everyone say a little prayer for Randy…… Forever and Ever, Amen.
UPDATE: 7/10/13 Randy Travis’ PR person says that Randy’s condition is improving. Hopefully he will make a full recovery from this current situation.
