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.

How sad. One of the best songs of all time - 'Forever and Ever, Amen'. It seems like when it's your time to go, it's your time to go. Thoughts are with him and his family.

I just turned 30. Must be a sign of getting older that people I grew up listening to and watching are beginning to die. So sad.

Other websites are saying it's SARS related as there's another large SARS outbreak in Asia and people close to Randy just came back from affected areas yet TMZ will not rule out SARS.
