On July 7, 2013, country singer Randy Travis was admitted to a Texas hospital in critical condition, according to WSMV.
His public relations representative announced the hospitalization.
WSMV reports Travis entered the medical facility on Sunday for viral cardiomyopathy, described as a heart condition which is caused by a viral infection.
TMZ reports Travis, 54, is at the Mayo Clinic and noted that cardiomyopathy weakens and enlarges the heart and “can lead to heart failure.”
According to the website, cardiomyopathy can be caused by “many factors” including high blood pressure and “excessive use of alcohol over many years.”
It is unclear what caused the country singer to have the condition, however, ShowBiz 411 reports that Travis has a long history of substance and alcohol abuse. The website indicates in 2012, he was sentenced to 180 days in jail after pleading guilty to drunk driving. Authorities reportedly found the singer lying nude on a Texas road after crashing his car.
