NASHVILLE, Tenn. • The publicist for Randy Travis says the country music singer has suffered a stroke in a Texas hospital.
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 Wednesday night to relieve pressure on his brain. He has been in critical condition.
Doctors said earlier Wednesday that Travis was in good health until three weeks before he was hospitalized, when he contracted a viral upper respiratory infection.
The viral illness led to a weakened heart muscle that eventually worsened into heart failure.
