Randy Travis
suffered a stroke ... and is currently in emergency surgery to relieve pressure from his brain.

According to the country star's publicist he was in a Texas hospital this evening getting treatment for his ongoing heart issues when the stroke hit.

As we previously reported ... Travis was airlifted to a hospital on Sunday when a viral illness led to congestive heart failure -- and doctors had inserted a tiny pump to assist in stabilizing his heart.

Just a few hours ago, one of Randy's doctors said he was stable and "showing signs of improvement."

The rep says Randy's family and friends are the hospital now ... waiting for him to come out of surgery.

He is listed in critical condition.

I made several comments yesterday on another Randy Travis article & I was called "crazy person" because I tried to explain to people the risks of having both viral cardiomyopathy & left side heart failure. I wasn't trying to scare anyone in thinking he was "already dead" but just let people know that even without complications such as stroke, that recovery is a long process & can take months. So much for trying to help people understand what Mr. Travis is dealing with. Now that he has had a stroke & is in surgery, do you believe me now doubters?

Funny how things happen. When he was drunk driving, smashing into things and nothing happened to him. And now, he went in for heart surgery & has a stroke. Just an observation. Hope he get well.

God protect him tonight. Send your Angels to comfort him and inspire him to conquer the world with renewed faith upon his recovery. He is both blessed with fame and cursed by it too. But he is a good soul who deserves a miracle. Pull through Randy! Prayer is powerful. And God is merciful. In His Holy name, Amen.

Sugar, Dear Randy: I love your music and acting so much, and I know in your life you're so much more than that!

Everyone has their own trials and tribulations and I'm praying for your swift recovery. YOU HAVE SO MUCH LEFT TO LIVE FOR and so much more to give. Forget everyone else; JUST CONCENTRATE ON YOUR HEALTH. Nothing else matters right now except for your health and your God. God WILL PULL YOU THROUGH THIS!

You've now been through the worst, and you are receiving excellent medical care and the love and prayers of all of your true fans and loved ones all around the world.

COWBOY UP Dear Randy, and my prayers are with you!

God Bless You, Randy! No one else matters except for you, your God, your family and true friends.

HATERS: BUG OFF! If you don't have something nice to say, then post something nasty about YOURSELF online WITH YOUR PHOTOS! Poopheads!

Sheesh! What's wrong with this country! Everyone hiding behind their little laptops like COWARDS!

Real love from L.A.

@GOLDENBWOY RE: "WHO THE **** IS THIS OLD ASS WHITE MAN?!

*******************************

Let's see, he's someone who is:

* Classy enough not to let his a$$ hang out of his pants
* Honorable enough not to blame race every time there is a problem in his life
* Responsible enough to raise the children that he fathered
* Motivated enough to find a good job
* Smart enough not to become a crack attic
and
* White enough to earn an undeserved insult from a racist while he sits on his death bed

Any other questions?
