Travis was admitted to a Texas hospital earlier this week. According to NY Daily News, the singer was well until he contracted a viral upper respiratory infection three weeks ago. His condition escalated and caused, what TMZ believe to be, presumptive cardiomyopathy and congestive heart failure.

A rep for the singer told TMZ that Travis is suffering from complications with his heart that have stemmed from his recently acquired viral cardiomyopathy - a heart condition caused by a viral infection. The rep did not specify exactly what was wrong with Travis, they only disclosed the information that he is in hospital and in a potentially life threatening condition. Prior to his admittance into hospital, Travis was scheduled to perform in Deadwood, South Dakota this coming Wednesday (July 10). Obviously, given his recent condition, he obviously won't be performing that gig anymore.

Randy Travis Seeking Treatment For Drink Problems


Randy Travis

After a year of hell, Randy Travis wants to make things right in 2013 and the first thing he wants to get sorted out in his newly leased life is his ongoing troubles with the bottle.

The Grammy-winning country star is currently in the throws of making two albums back-to-back and on top of this he want to put his drinking problems behind him too, something that he is currently working on. According to TMZ, the singer is searching high and low for treatment for his alcohol dependancy, despite swearing off drink, following his naked DUI last year.

According to his manager, Larry Friedman, though, Randy hasn't fallen off the wagon yet, he is simply looking for a little assistance as he makes his leap over the hump towards full-time sobriety. According to Friedman, Randy is noticing significant improvements in his health and has no plans on getting back on the bottle, but as he enters the stressful atmosphere of the studio he is looking for help to maintain his newfound sobriety.

Not Guilty? Randy Travis Insists On Jury Trial To Clear Assault Charge


Randy Travis

Randy Travis reckons he’s not guilty of assaulting a man in a church parking lot back in August and he’s requested a jury trial. On Friday (December 21, 2012), country singer Travis appeared in a Plano Texas courtroom, LA Times reports, to answer charges of assault. The incident occurred at the end of summer, when Randy allegedly got himself embroiled in an argument with his girlfriend and her estranged husband.

Travis’ attorney, Larry Friedman, insists that Travis was merely acting as a good Samaritan, when two men started harassing his girlfriend, and her 17 year-old daughter. According to Friedman’s version of events, one of the men attacked Travis before the police arrived and the singer had merely been defending himself. However, Travis’s public behaviour record has been far from clean, of late. In February, he was arrested on suspicion of public intoxication and he also got himself arrested in the summer for DUI. Oh and he was also charged with retaliation / obstruction, after he allegedly threatened an officer during the arrest process.

A court date has been set for March 11 and Friedman’s doing his best to clean up Randy Travis’ image in the meantime, insisting that he’s off the strong stuff, for a start. “Randy is no longer drinking any alcohol,” Friedman has told Dallas Morning News. “He’s committed to a new fitness regime that includes a strict three-hour workout every day and a new high-protein diet.” We’re not sure that anyone ever got off an assault charge by promising to eat more protein, but we’ll watch to see how this one pans out.

Randy Travis Pleads Not Guilty To Simple Assault Charge

Singer Randy Travis has pleaded not guilty to the charge of simple assault at a Plano courtroom yesterday (Dec 21).

The Grammy-winning country star is accused of getting caught up in a dispute between his girlfriend Mary Beougher and her estranged husband, whilst outside Prestonwood Baptist Church in Texas this August. All three were arrested on the scene, with Travis taken in on class C assault charges, a misdemeanour.

Travis, who received an increasing amount of bad press in the build up to this particular case, had only one comment to give outside the courtroom yesterday, addressed to his fans. He said: "Don't believe everything you see and hear. Merry Christmas, have a happy and healthy New Year. God bless."
