LOS ANGELES: US country music legend Randy Travis is in critical condition in a Texas hospital because of complications from a virus, the singer’s publicist said on Monday. 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.– Reuters
