Randy Travis

I Didn't Pick a Fight

... at That Church

Randy Travis didn't kick the holy crap out of anyone outside of a Texas church back in August ... at least that's what the country singer is telling the judge.

Travis just appeared in court in Plano, Texas ... where he plead not guilty to simple assault for allegedly attacking another man in the church parking lot around 1 AM on August 24.

TMZ broke the story ... cops say Randy was the primary aggressor after getting involved in a "family argument" between a woman and another man.

Randy's lawyer, Larry Friedman, had told us the woman is Randy's fiancee ... who was arguing with her estranged husband ... when Randy entered the situation.

Friedman claimed Randy had simply "come to the rescue" and did nothing wrong.

The case is now slated to head to trial -- which is set to begin in March.

Boy, Randy is looking a little rough around the edges. He's only 53 and It looks like alcohol is working it's magic on him.

Hang in there Randy. We all learn from our mistakes. Plus, these people commenting here have never had a taste of the BIG TIME. It's easy for them to sit behind a computer and judge others who are trying to hang in an extremely compettive industry. That's all they've ever done and all theyt will ever do!

Where I come from. If someone is going to have a drink on a Sunday at the bar or pub is usually called by its code name: Church. Lol. Could be why the fight happened at such an hour. Haha!

He made the mistake of leaving his wife, she kept him pretty much grounded. Now he's just a babbling mess.. I hope he can get it together for his own sake...
