Randy Travis Gives Up Booze
After two spectacular arrests, the country superstar says he's quit drinking to focus on fitness, vitamins and his music.
Country star Randy Travis is officially done with alcohol, says his lawyer. Some would say it's about time, as the six-time Grammy winner has been arrested twice for alcohol-related incidents this year: first in February for public drunkenness outside of a baptist church after celebrating the Super Bowl, then again in August for crashing his car while driving drunk (and nude). But now Larry Friedman, Travis’s lawyer, says the 53-year-old singer has “eliminated alcohol from his daily life” and is focused on getting healthy. “[Randy] works out three hours every day and is in the best shape of his life,” Friedman says. “He has a high protein diet and takes a lot of vitamins.” In addition to getting fit, Travis is also working on new music—he reportedly started recording tracks in the studio in Texas last week. His previous bouts of drunkenness could give him plenty of material for some classic country songs.
