Not much time has passed since we heard that singer Randy Travis was in the hospital, in critical condition, because of a heart ailment. We didn't have a lot of specific info to go on, just that it was happening!

Now, we're hearing from both a family member AND a rep about some of the details of what's going on!

Randy's brother's wife had the following to say about the singer's current situation:

"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. 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."

That's so scary! At least he was in a stable enough condition for them to operate, though!

Here's what Randy's rep had to say:

"[He is] suffering from complications of recently acquired viral cardiomyopathy."

Basically, this is a weakening of the heart due to infection — which we don't have to tell you guys is NOT a good thing!

Randy has seen his share of troubles, but he doesn't deserve this. Nobody does! We hope he recovers soon!
