Singer Randy Travis in critical condition after medical procedure

Posted: Updated:

DALLAS (CBSDFW.COM) - Singer/songwriter Randy Travis has been hospitalized and is in critical condition following a medical procedure according to his Public Relations representative.

The 54-year-old country music star was suffering from complications of recently acquired viral cardiomyopathy, a heart condition caused by a viral infection, and was immediately admitted to an undisclosed hospital.

In February 2012, Travis was charged with public intoxication after being found in a vehicle parked in front of the First Baptist Church of Sanger.

Travis was also arrested in August 2012 after a Department of Public Safety trooper found him naked in the middle of the road after crashing his Trans Am near Tioga. In that case Travis agreed to a plea deal and was given two years of probation, sentenced to 100 hour of community service, fined $2,000, and ordered to spend 30 days in an inpatient alcohol treatment facility.
