The Associated Press reports that Randy Travis and his wife-manager, Elizabeth Travis, are splitting.
According to the AP, a statement from Elizabeth Travis says they have “agreed to part ways.” The statement did not indicate whether they had filed for divorce. Neither could be reached for comment.
Randy and Elizabeth were together for 34 years, starting when a teenage Randy won a talent contest in the mid-‘70s at a nightclub Elizabeth owned in North Carolina. Elizabeth took Randy to Nashville and determinedly pursued a record deal for the traditional country singer at a time when pop country was king. They married in 1991.
Elizabeth says she will remain Randy’s personal manager, the AP reports.
