This is so sad to hear!
Country music singer Randy Travis was hospitalized in Dallas, Texas yesterday and is currently in critical condition.
The Grammy winning singer suffered some serious complications after he was diagnosed with viral cardiomyopathy, a disease that makes it difficult for the heart to pump blood and can lead to heart failure in some cases.
Things certainly don't sound very promising at the moment, but we're hoping he can find the strength to pull through and make a full recovery!
Get better soon, Randy!
