Tough Year For Randy Travis

Posted on December 21, 2012

Country music stars are known for their affinity to booze. They are free to drink whenever they want, but they should never get behind the wheel if they’ve had too much to drink.

The year 2012 was a challenging year for Randy Travis. The legendary artist celebrated 25 years in the music business by launching The 25th Anniversary Celebration Tour and releasing his Anniversary Celebration duets album which featured Brad Paisley, Kenny Chesney, Kris Kristofferson, Carri Underwood, George Jones, Zac Brown Band, Lorrie Morgan, Jamey Johnson and more. He also saw his fair share of legal troubles.

Travis was arrested in Sanger, Texas in the early morning hours of February 6 on a charge of suspicion of public intoxication. He was spotted in front of the First Baptist Church in Sanger with an open bottle of wine. Travis was taken to Denton where he was booked into the county jail and released a few hours later. Travis issued a public apology following the incident.

Travis’ legal woes didn’t end there. In August, he was arrested near his in home Tioga, Texas and charged with driving while intoxicated. He was found naked and lying in the road having crashed his 1998 Pontiac Trans Am off the side of the road and into several barricades in a construction zone. He also faced a charge of retaliation or obstruction after threatening a state trooper.

Less than two weeks later, Travis was cited for a Class C simple assault after he allegedly got into a fight with his girlfriend’s estranged husband, who was also cited, according to USA Today. The altercation took place in a church parking lot and alcohol did not appear to be a factor.

Travis’ lawyer Larry Friedman recently issued a statement to TMZ saying that the singer has given up alcohol and is focused on living a healthier lifestyle. He has reportedly returned to the studio to start working on a new album.
