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.

He's a great singer,but it's no real secret that he was a drunk for decades. I'm guessing he has tooted a little coke in his time,too.

Drug/alcohol abuse are often the result of sudden success,wealth,and fame.

Plus,a life spent touring and eating fast food,not getting enough sleep,etc,etc,etc,it all contributes. Lots of people seek fame and fortune in the entertainment industry,but it's a very destructive lifestyle if you don't pay attention to what you are doing.

It was only a matter of time. He has been spiraling into the loo for the past year, at least. It's very sad. I love his voice.
