NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- 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.

Asking for God's healing hand on Mr. Travis and a word of advice. Randy, get back in line and let Lib Hatcher manage you and your career again. You've been on a wrong path since you split with her and now it's getting serious. Might be time for a life evaluation.
