Country star Randy Travis was rushed into surgery overnight after having a stroke.
The hospital in Plano, Texas says he is out of surgery to relieve pressure on his brain and is in critical condition.
The stroke was apparently a complication of his congestive heart failure.
He was hospitalized Sunday with a virus that attacks the heart muscles.
Travis' publicist says his family is asking for prayers and support.
