Although he is suffering from congestive heart failure, the Randy Travis dead rumor going around on Twitter and Facebook is not true. The singer is still in critical condition at this time but hospital doctors say the country music star is showing signs of improvement. So no, Randy Travis is not dead but he’s a very lucky man that he received medical help before his illness may have taken a fatal turn.
Randy Travis was admitted to the Baylor Medical Center on Sunday suffering from viral cardiomyopathy — a viral infection that had invaded his heart muscle. He underwent surgery to install a heart pump to assist in blood flow and was transferred to Baylor’s Heart Hospital in Plano. Since the procedure, Travis’ condition has been improving, according to staff at Baylor.
