PLANO, Texas, July 31 (UPI) -- Country music star Randy Travis was moved Wednesday from a Texas hospital to a rehab facility where he will continue his recovery from a stroke, officials said.

Travis, 54, suffered congestive heart failure and was diagnosed with cardiomyopathy after being admitted to Baylor Heart hospital in Plano, Texas, July 7. He suffered a stroke while in the hospital and had surgery to reduce pressure on his brain.

The hospital said Wednesday Travis has been relocated to a physical therapy facility for further treatment, KTVT-TV, Dallas, reported.

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

Travis last month completed his court-ordered rehab stemming from a 2012 drunken driving arrest and was touring again when he was struck down by pneumonia, which led to complications of viral cardiomyopathy and congestive heart failure.
