Randy Travis, the country singer who suffered a stroke a month ago while undergoing treatment for a viral infection, was discharged from the Baylor Heart hospital in Plano, Texas, on Wednesday.

Travis, 54, has been moved to a physical therapy facility where he will receive treatment following the stroke, a message on his website read.

“Thanks to all the fans and friends for your continued prayers and support as Randy continues on the road to recovery,” Travis’ fiancée Mary Davis wrote on the website.

Travis was admitted to the hospital on July 7 for a viral infection, following which he was diagnosed with cardiomyopathy, a disease that can weaken the heart muscles, and congestive heart failure. But, the singer suffered a stroke on July 10 while undergoing a surgery to relieve pressure on the brain.

According to, doctors had kept Travis’ fans updated on his recovery through video conferences, and had told them it would take months before he made a full recovery.

"He is awake and alert and interacting with his family and friends and beginning to start doing some early physical therapy," Dr. Gary Erwin, a pulmonologist at the hospital, said soon after the surgery, on the video conference. "We anticipate it will take months to recover from the stroke."

Travis, who is best known for songs such as “Three Wooden Crosses”, “Forever and Ever, Amen”, “Diggin’ Up Bones” and “Deeper Than The Holler” was in the process of putting his life back together after various run-ins with the law when he was hospitalized.
