Country star Randy Travis is recovering from his emergency brain surgery, while scores of fans and fellow country musicians banded together to urge on the prayers for him. It was a terrifying chain of events that led to the operation. Travis had been recovering from heart failure, brought on by a viral infection, when he had the stroke, which necessitated the surgery to relieve pressure on his brain, according to publicist Kirt Webster’s account. Webster urged Travis’s friends and fans to pray for the singer’s speedy recovery.
Travis suffered a string of complications, following a viral infection.
Some of the first people to join his call were Hillary Scott of Lady Antebellum and Martina McBride and the Grand Ole Opry, the AP reports. An army of Randy fans joined in, using the hashtag #PrayforRandy. Drs. William Gray and Michael Mack of the Baylor Health Care System in Texas described Travis’ condition and hospitalization in a video statement on Wednesday.
Scores of musicians banded together in support.
“His condition has stabilized, and he has shown signs of improvement,” Mack said in the video. “On behalf of Mr. Travis’ family, friends and associates, we would like to express our extreme gratitude for the overwhelming affection and support that Mr. Travis has received.”
This, however, was before the latest complication, which once again puts Travis’s full recovery at stake. So, no new announcements have been made, following his operation. “We’re all pulling for you Randy,” Brad Paisley said via Twitter.
Travis's current condition is unknown.
