EXCLUSIVE

0708_randy_travis_tmzCountry superstar Randy Travis is in CRITICAL CONDITION after suffering from complications stemming from recently acquired viral cardiomyopathy ... this according to the singer's rep.

We're told the 54-year-old Grammy winner was admitted to a hospital in Texas yesterday. 

According to the Mayo Clinic, cardiomyopathy is a "disease that weakens and enlarges your heart muscle." Cardiomyopathy can lead to heart failure.

It's unclear what caused Travis' condition.

Travis was scheduled to perform in Deadwood, South Dakota on Wednesday.

Randy Travis has made his share of bad choices. However Randy Travis is human and he is a good singer- my prayers are with God for Randy Travis!! Jesus said in the Bible- "he that is without sin let him cast the first stone"- I dont think any of us are without sin. Goodspeed with your recovery Randy Travis!!!

Maybe drinking himself into oblivion had something to do with it. Just throwing that out there - in other words....he's a stupid DRUNK.

The problem is Randy Travis chooses to suck on a liquor bottle instead of caring for his own health. It's a shame that all of these celebraties don't know how to face real life so they turn to all kinds of substance abuse and unfortunately death is the prize. They have all kinds of money but have nothing.

Shame - he'll probably need a heart transplant. Cardiomyopathies usually are progressive to complete heart failure. He looks bad - like a drinker/drugger which can also cause.

I have read some e-mails that have appeared; Randy has made wonderful contributions to the world of music and acting. It is a shame that when a person has sorrow and tragady in their life we forget the good and make tacky untasteful comments about bad choices they have made. Who of us haven't made tons of poor choices, we have just been lucky enough to get by. Best pray for ourselves as we all will have our day. Prayers and good wishes to Randy.
