It has been announced that country star Randy Travis has been released from hospital three weeks after being treated for severe health problems.

The singer was suffering from congestive heart failure and later had a stroke.

A statement said he was discharged from hospital near Dallas yesterday, reports Entertainment Weekly.

His publicist, Kirt Webster, also added that he has moved to a physical therapy centre for further treatment.

The 54-year-old went into heart failure due to a viral illness and later had an operation to relieve the pressure on his brain.
