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."
