OFFSTAGE: Carrie Underwood, Keith Urban Tweet Love for Randy Travis

(CMT Offstage keeps a 24/7 watch on everything that’s happening with country music artists behind the scenes and out of the spotlight.)

The minute the news hit that Randy Travis was in the hospital , the tweets starting flooding in from fans, friends and country singers who are probably a little bit of both. Carrie Underwood wrote, “Thinking about my friend, @randytravis, tonight. Hope he gets better soon.” And Keith Urban said, “Sending healing strength and love to you this morning @randytravis.” And while I don’t know if this had anything to do with Travis specifically, Kix Brooks had a tweet that came from the heart this morning (July 9). “good morning world — let’s rock this day — hope for healing in a world cursed with tragedies — let’s go find the good stuff !”

Travis was still in critical condition Monday afternoon (July 8) at a Dallas-area hospital after undergoing a procedure to treat complications from viral cardiomyopathy. Other tweets from stars so far include:

Brad Paisley: “Sending prayers and well wishes to Randy Travis.”

Billy Ray Cyrus: “Thoughts and prayers for my buddy Randy Travis.”

Tracy Lawrence: “Sending a get well message out to my buddy @randytravis tonight. Thinking of you and wishing you a speedy recovery.”
