Randy Travis

CRITICAL CONDITION

with Heart Issues

7/8/2013 2:06 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
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.

Praying for you Travis. If George Jones (one of the biggest partiers in country music) made it to his 80s, you can do it to.

Those of you who don't have a clue what you're saying here, should study up. I was not a drinker, smoker or drug user & was perfectly healthy until felled about the same age as Randy with an idiopathic viral infection which killed my heart muscle & necessitated 2 heart transplants. Why would any of you make such stupid remarks about what happened to him before you truly know? What is the point of putting someone who is critically ill down? Does it really make YOU feel better? Shameful!

Well the rep for Randy says Viral, however it is a common occurence for Alcoholics to get Cardiomyopathy. Perhaps the REP is LYING, And the Drunk bastard is to much of a coward for saying its for being a drunk.

I pray for a speedy recovery for you Randy and please stay away from the booze and drugs. God has been so gracious to you. Accept his love now. Please don't end up like some other entertainers who aren't around anymore.

Um, it's a "Viral cardiomyopathy" -- so the cause is a virus ... and bad luck.
