EDITORS PLEASE NOTE: THIS EDIT CONTAINS MATERIAL WHICH WAS ORIGINALLY 4:3 U.S. country music legend Randy Travis is in critical condition in a Texas hospital because of complications from a virus, the "Forever and Ever, Amen" singer's publicist said on Monday (July 8). Travis, 54, one of country music's best-selling artists, is suffering from viral cardiomyopathy, which weakens the heart and can lead to heart failure. Travis grabbed 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 probation and ordered to serve at least 30 days at an in-patient alcohol treatment facility.
