2012 Rewind: No. 7 – Randy Travis Has Year of Highs and Lows
Posted By Sarah Wyland On December 20, 2012 @ 9:15 AM In Country Music News | Comments Disabled
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,  Carrie Underwood,  George Jones , Zac Brown Band , Lorrie Morgan,  Jamey Johnson  and more. He also saw his fair share of legal troubles.
Randy 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 the First Baptist Church in Sanger with an open bottle of wine, police said. Randy was taken to Denton where he was booked into the county jail and released a few hours later. Randy issued a public apology following the incident.
“I apologize for what resulted following an evening of celebrating the Super Bowl,” he said. “I’m committed to being responsible and accountable, and apologize for my actions.”
Randy’s legal woes didn’t end there. In August, he was arrested near his 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, Randy 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.
Randy’s lawyer Larry Friedman recently issued a statement to TMZ  saying Randy 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.
