Randy Travis mugshot
Country singer Randy Travis was arrested in Sanger, Texas this morning for public intoxication ... after cops say he was boozing in front of a Baptist church.

According to the Sanger Police Department, someone called the cops to report a suspicious vehicle near the church ... and when officers arrived to the scene, they discovered the 52-year-old singer with an open bottle of wine.  

The "Forever and Ever, Amen" singer was hauled to a nearby jail around 1:30 AM -- he was booked, cited and released a short time later.

I'm not surprised, he did a benefit show September 25, 2011 for a Fort Worth hospital in Fort Worth where he was singing Three wooden crosses and passed out during the song. He was stuttering the words on all of the songs, I even have the video of him passing out.

He must be drinking because he's having flash backs of sleeping with his ex, that white haired old hag he was married too.Sorry but she wasn't even close to good looking. That's enough to drive a man to drink, sleeping with someone thats old enough to be your mother and dresses and looks it. YUCKY

@Chris. Country music people drink a lot because it must be difficult to live a hypocritical life - living one way and preaching "Christianity" to everyone else.
