Randy Travis hospitalized, in critical conditon

Randy Travis was airlifted to a Texas hospital on Sunday and is listed in critical condition.  According to a press release from his publicist, Randy is suffering complications of viral cardiomyopathy, a weakening of the heart muscles caused by a viral infection.  Randy’s sister-in-law, Teresa Traywick, says he underwent heart surgery yesterday. UPDATE:  A representative for Randy says he has NOT undergone heart surgery.  He did have a procedure done but it was not technically surgery.  He remains in critical condition.

Dierks Bentley has one day off the rest of the month and he’ll use it to raise money for the families of the 19 Arizona firefighters killed last week.  Dierks plans to invite other performers to join him for Country Cares Concert and the proceeds will be given to the United Phoenix Firefighters and distributed directly to the families of the fallen.

Craig Morgan will perform at the Jack Daniels/USO Toast to the Troops Care Package Stuffing Party in Jacksonville , Fl later this week.  During the event, 7,500 care packages will be filled for troops overseas.
