Country singer Randy Travis has been hospitalized in Texas for complications from a recently contracted viral cardiomyopathy – a rep for the singer tells ABC News in a statement.
The Grammy winner was admitted Sunday, and has been listed in critical condition.
Travis (54) who is best known for the songs “Three Wooden Crosses,” “Forever and Ever, Amen,” “Diggin’ Up Bones,” and “Deeper Than the Holler,” has been rebounding from a very tough 2012.

Randy Travis’ sister-in-law Teresa Traywick released a statement about the singer’s condition:
“We have been told he has had surgery. Our prayers are going out to him because my husband just had a heart attack last year, so it is in their family. Their mother passed away at an early age with her heart, so it is like these boys are following right in their footsteps. My prayers are with them. That’s all I can say right now.”

Travis (54) – one of country music’s best-selling artists who had a string of hits in the 1980s, is suffering from viral cardiomyopathy, which he recently acquired, Travis’ publicist said in a statement.
Cardiomyopathy weakens and enlarges the heart, making it more difficult for the muscle to pump blood and can lead to heart failure.
The “Forever and Ever, Amen” singer was admitted to hospital on Sunday.
Travis (best known for hits “Three Wooden Crosses” and “Diggin’ Up Bones”) made headlines last year after Texas State Troopers found the singer lying naked near his crashed car and his booking photo showed his face covered in cuts and bruises.
He pleaded guilty to driving while intoxicated and was sentenced to two years of probation and ordered to serve at least 30 days at an in-patient alcohol treatment facility.
