Country star Randy Travis discharged from hospital

PLANO, Texas - Country music star Randy Travis is out of the hospital three weeks after he was admitted with congestive heart failure and later suffered a stroke.

A statement Wednesday said Travis had been discharged from The Heart Hospital Baylor Plano near Dallas, where he was admitted July 7.

The statement from publicist Kirt Webster went on to say Travis had been moved to a physical therapy center for further treatment for a stroke he suffered July 10.

The 54-year-old singer developed the heart failure due to a viral illness. The stroke prompted surgeons to operate to relieve pressure on his brain.

Travis' fiancee Mary Davis gave thanks for the prayers and support the singer received from fans and friends for his recovery.
