Randy Travis has undergone heart surgery after being admitted to a Texas hospital Sunday in critical condition, according to news from his family.
"We have been told he has had surgery. Our prayers are going out to him because my husband just had a heart attack last year, so it is in their family," Theresa Traywick, who is married to Travis's brother, told People. "Their mother passed away at an early age with her heart, so it is like these boys are following right in their footsteps. My prayers are with them. That's all I can say right now."Read More »from Randy Travis’s Family Speaks: Says He Had Heart Surgery
