Country music has long been associated with alcohol – it’s hard to express the essential sadness of the rural American worker without some whiskey in you. But for singing legend Randy Travis, 2012 was the year that the demon in the bottle took over his life. It started in February, when Travis was busted for being drunk in his car in the parking lot of a Baptist church.
Obviously, that was just the opener, because in August police found a totally wasted Travis lying nude in the middle of the road, next to his crashed car. Why he was naked has never been explained. He then got busted again for fighting some random dude outside of a church. Thankfully, he’s entered a treatment program for alcoholism and it’s supposedly working well.
