Now that he’s out of the immediate danger posed by a severe case of cardiomyopathy, country singer Randy Travis is beginning what is likely to be a long and difficult recovery process. Fortunately, the American Idol guest has the support of friends and family — including his good buddy Billy Ray Cyrus!
We’re glad to report that Randy Travis is showing signs of improvement. An emergency surgery was successful in reducing swelling in the musician’s brain, allowing him to awaken from a stroke that took hold last week. Although he remains in critical condition, Randy is awake and communicating with both family members and medical professionals.
Randy Travis’ health scare has prompted a huge outpouring of support from family members, friends and fans all over the world. Included in this group of well-wishers is Billy Ray Cyrus, longtime friend and fellow musician. Upon hearing the news of Randy’s heart problems, Billy Ray took to Twitter to share, “Thoughts and prayers for my buddy Randy Travis.” A few days later, as word of Randy’s worsening condition spread, his friend again shared his thoughts via social media, tweeting, “Thoughts and prayers continue for Randy Travis. Not only my good friend …I’m a fan of the man and his undeniable distinct voice. Legend!”
Billy Ray Cyrus now knows that Randy Travis’ condition has improved greatly, but that doesn’t mean he’s about to let up on the prayers. Yesterday, he advised Twitter followers to “continue to pray for my buddy Randy Travis…and all of your hopes and dreams.” And it appears they are taking his advice, for Randy Travis get well tweets continue to dominate the Twitterverse.
Randy Travis is fortunate to have such a supportive friend. We also hope he is able to make a speedy recovery!
