Randy Travis

Locals RUSHED to Jail

to Give Him $$$, Clothes

EXCLUSIVE

0809_gary_randy_travis_APRandy Travis was NOT wearing a Texas Longhorns hat at the time of his naked arrest ... it was a gift from a local attorney who rushed to the jail the second he heard the country star was in trouble. 

TMZ has learned ... moments after word got out about Travis' arrest, several locals raced over to the jail to help out -- one man posted Randy's cash bond and another man offered legal services right away.

The lawyer was Gary Corley ... who tells TMZ the area around Sherman, TX is a close-knit community where the people take care of each other ... and he wanted to "do the humanitarian thing" and help Travis.

0809_randy_travis_mug_subassetWhen Corley arrived to the jail, he briefly met with Randy, offered his services, and told him about the legion of photographers waiting outside the jail to shoot the singer.

Corley tells us he was wearing his Texas hat at the time, but decided Randy probably needed it more ... and literally gave him the cap right off of his head so the singer could shield his face from shutterbugs on his way out.

We're told Corley had a car waiting for Travis in case he wanted a ride ... but the man who posted  Randy's cash bond had already arranged for transportation ... so Randy went with his money man.

So far, we're told Randy has not officially hired an attorney ... but Corley says he'll be there if he needs him.

Travis obviously needs rehab. Whatever personal demons he's battling must be dealt with and the process must begin quickly. He's literally making a mockery of himself and has lost a great deal of credibility. So sad. Not because he's a musician, but because he's a human being in pain. Best wishes, Randy.

Concerned attorney, or ambulance-chasing, or in this case, buck-naked drunk-ass fool chasing?

The guys in the picture look sort of like the guys that were driving when Randy wiped out while doing his drunken naked car surfing stunt. Like any good old boys would do, they left the scene. Poor old Randy laying naked in the road singing "I'm on the Highway to Jail"

I hope Randy can get his life straightened out. He is, and always has been one of my favorite Country singers. He is so very talented. I find it very sad.
