Dallas, Tx. (July 8, 2013) — Country singer Randy Travis has been admitted to a Texas hospital and is listed in critical condition. The Grammy winner is suffering from complications of recently acquired viral cardiomyopathy. Travis was admitted into the medical facility yesterday.
Wikipedia tells us that cardiomyopathy is defined as "the measurable deterioration of the function of the [heart muscle] for any reason, usually leading to heart failure." Scary stuff. We wish Travis a speedy recovery.
