US country singer Randy Travis has been discharged from hospital in Texas, three weeks after he suffered a stroke.

Travis' publicist, Kirt Webster, said he had been moved to a physical therapy centre for further treatment.

The 54-year-old was initially admitted to Baylor Medical Centre on 7 July, suffering from a heart condition caused by a virus.

Three days later he suffered a stroke and underwent emergency surgery to relieve pressure on his brain.

Travis' fiancée Mary Davis thanked fans and friends for their "prayers and support as Randy continues on the road to recovery".

Travis is best known for his songs Forever and Ever, Amen, Diggin' Up Bones and I Told You So.

He began his career in the mid-1980s and has won several Grammys and Country Music Association awards.
