Randy Travis Sedated, Remains Critical

Hospital officials say country music star Randy Travis remains in critical condition and has been under heavy sedation since surgery following a stroke.

The 54-year-old singer has been hospitalized since Sunday after suffering congestive heart failure due to a viral illness.
 
Travis suffered the stroke Wednesday night at The Heart Hospital Baylor Plano and doctors performed surgery to relieve pressure on his brain. 
 
A hospital statement says the "Three Wooden Crosses" singer is resting comfortably and that his family continues to ask for prayers and support.
 
The Grammy Award-winning singer has been surrounded by family and friends while in the hospital and received a visit Thursday from George Jones' widow, Nancy, who played music for her late husband's longtime friend.
