Country music singer Randy Travis is awake and making progress after having surgery following a stroke, doctors said Monday.

Travis had remained under heavy sedation after he suffered congestive heart failure due to a viral illness.

Last Wednesday, Travis also suffered a stroke. Doctors had to perform surgery to relieve pressure on his brain.

His family and friends have been by his side all last week and say they continue to ask for support and prayers.
