Travis' publicist says the 54-year-old was in a Texas hospital Wednesday evening getting treatment for his ongoing heart issues when the stroke hit.

God bless him...I've been a fan of his since Forever And Ever Amen. And Randy will certainly be in my prayers.


hoping he gets well


He has done this to HIMSELF. The last time he was in an altercation it was because of alcohol. He hasn't learned from that, so the HOLE he is digging for himself is almost DUG.

What an awful thing to say when someone is so seriously ill. This is not the time for such talk. You and that jackass Terry both deserve a miserable payback. You have both shown what low life dirtbags you really are.


Must be that "rot-gut" caught up to him


Many prayers for Randy, one of my fav singers. Love his songs.
