Randy Travis Out Of Hospital — Country Singer Released, Off To Physical Therapy
It’s unclear how long Randy will have to undergo physical therapy, according to TMZ, but this is a great step forward for the singer, whose fans will no doubt be happy to hear some good news for a change.
Randy, 54, was first admitted to the hospital on July 7, after suffering from complications stemming from viral cardiomyopathy.
Viral cardiomyopathy is a weakening of the heart muscles that interferes with the heart’s ability to pump blood with sufficient force, according to Johns Hopkins.

We will have updates as they become available. His family and friends here with him at the hospital request your prayers and support.”
