    Randy Travis

    Randy Travis isn't entirely out of the woods, but he is out of the hospital.

    The country singer's rep announced today that Travis has been transferred from The Heart Hospital Baylor Plano to a facility where he'll continue to undergo physical therapy following the stroke he suffered while battling heart trouble over the past month.

    "Thanks to all the fans and friends for your continued prayers and support as Randy continues on the road to recovery," Travis' fiancée, Mary Davis, said in a statement.

    Travis, 54, was admitted to Baylor McKinney hospital on July 7 with heart trouble after visiting the ER.

    He was eventually transferred to Heart Hospital and specialists ultimately diagnosed idiopathic cardiomyopathy. While being treated, however, he suffered a stroke and required surgery to relieve pressure on his brain.

    On July 15, doctors announced that Travis was "awake and alert interacting with his family and friends and beginning to start doing some early physical therapy."

    Dr. Gary Erwin, an intensivist at The Heart Hospital, predicted that the Storms of LIfe artist faced "months of recovery" ahead—but at least the recovery period is underway.
