Randy Travis Sober: Country Singer Has Quit Drinking, Says Lawyer

Posted: Updated:

After a string of alcohol-related incidents, country legend Randy Travis is sober. TMZ reports that Travis' lawyer, Larry Friedman, confirms that the 53-year-old crooner has quit alcohol for good.

"[Randy] works out 3 hours every day and is in the best shape of his life," Friedman told the website. "He has a high protein diet and takes a lot of vitamins."

The website also reports that Travis is at work on a new album, an optimistic turn in what has proven to be a rough year for the singer. In August, Travis was arrested naked and charged with a DWI after he crashed his car into a construction site 60 miles north of Dallas. In February, Travis was arrested once again by Texas police for public intoxication. The singer has also weathered a difficult courtroom battle with ex-wife and former manager of 30 years, Elizabeth Travis, who sued him for breach of contract in April.
