    Default Randy Travis in DEEP trouble this time...

    The country legend suffered a heart attack brought on by a viral infection, and was admitted to the hospital in critical condition. He was recovering a bit, but today suffered a stroke while in the ICU... As I type this he is still in surgery.

    I've been following this story very closely, as I am a big fan of Randy and his music. I am deeply concerned, and I am praying that he'll pull through this and make a full recovery.

    Randy will go down in history as one of the all-time great voices in country music, and he had a big part in bringing back the traditional country sound in the eighties.

    Said a few prayers for him and spun the three LP's I have today. What a trip down memory lane that was. His talents opened my eyes to an entirely new path of music appreciation. I saw him perform at the Minnesota State Fair more than 15 years ago. He
    's not the most energetic of performers, but then again, he didn't need to be. He had a kind of swagger to him that immediately made you think of Hank Williams and some of the other legends.

    I hop he pulls through and I am able to see him perform once again.

    Are you saying you hope he dies??? That's what it looks like to me, but I don't want to jump to conclusions. Please clarify.

    nope not at all... My comment was more to that fact that all the GREATS seem to have died between 27-29y.o.
    So that is why i said he has lived too long to be known for that all time great voice.

    lol... I did not get all that from the rather short length of your post. I guess reading between the lines is not my strong suit.

    His voice always reminds me of Charley Pride, and that's a good thing.

    Randy has left the hospital, and is now in a physical therapy facility. Continued prayers for a full recovery...

    Continued recovery would be a good thing for country music.
