The two physicians who are attending Randy Travis have shared an update on his condition. The singer has been transferred to another hospital to receive specialized care.
Dr. William Gray, the director of cardiovascular services at Baylor Medical Center in McKinney, Texas, shares that the 54-year-old star was suffering from presumptive cardiomyopathy and congestive heart failure when he was admitted to Baylor on Sunday (July 7).
