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 released yesterday confirmed Travis has been discharged from The Heart Hospital Baylor Plano near Dallas, where he'd been admitted on 7 July.

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

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.
