Ever since Randy Travis was admitted to the hospital, country music stars and fans have united to show an outpouring of support for the iconic singer. Now that the singer is in stable condition, his fiancee believes that the prayers from so many people helped heal his heart.
Darius Rucker and Sheryl Crow were among the big names at Countryfest 2013 in New York on Saturday (July 13), but the super-sized tribute to the ailing Randy Travis might have provided the day's most memorable moment. Over 20,000 fans cheered and shouted the singer's name to show their undying support.
Randy Travis' heart troubles began with a viral infection, but at the root of his troubles is something more chronic. The singer has been hospitalized for eight days, much of which he's spent on life support.
Randy Travis -- who recently suffered a stroke after a complication due to a complication of congestive heart failure -- underwent surgery on Wednesday (July 10), and fans have been very concerned about his progress since. Finally, there has been an update -- and, most importantly, it's good news.

The country music community has been grieving since George Jones died in April.

Joe Nichols was handpicked by Randy Travis to record the new George Jones tribute 'Tonight I'm Playing Possum.'
