Randy Travis is in a "critical condition" after suffering a stroke.
The 54-year-old country singer underwent surgery to relieve pressure on his brain last night (10.07.13) after suffering the attack as a "complication of his congestive heart failure", for which he was initially hospitalized on Sunday (07.07.13) at Baylor Medical Center at McKinney, Texas.
The 'My Greatest Fear' hitmaker's publicist Kirt Webster said: "He is in critical condition.
These comments came just hours after doctors said Randy had "stabilized and he has shown signs of improvement."
Randy, who was initially suffering from cardiomyopathy - which weakens and enlarges the heart and can lead to heart failure - and congestive heart failure when he was admitted on Sunday, was transferred to The Heart Hospital at Baylor Plano in Texas on Monday (08.07.13) to receive a "higher level of specialized care".
Dr. Michael Mack said: "We determined together in a joint decision that a higher level of specialized care was appropriate, and therefore we transferred him to The Heart Hospital."
Randy then had a device fitted in his heart to help his blood flow.
Randy appeared to be well in business meetings on Friday (05.07.13) and Saturday (06.07.13) but Kirt revealed "on Sunday it hit him".
