    Contrary to reports, Randy Travis has not undergone heart surgery, according to his PR rep. The country singer is being treated for viral cardiomyopathy but did not undergo an operation. Travis was admitted into a Texas hospital on Sunday (July 7) and underwent placement of an IMPELLA peripheral left ventricular assist device for stabilization prior to transferring hospitals.

    That sounds serious.

    The Grammy-winning singer remains in critical condition.

    "We are very thankful to the fans for their love and support during this time," said Randy Travis.
