Randy Travis

I'm Getting Treatment

For My Booze Problem

1/26/2013 6:00 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

1127_randy_travis_tmz_wmRandy Travis is so serious about giving the bottle the boot ... he's actively seeking out treatment for his alcohol problem -- all while recording two albums -- TMZ has learned.

If you recall ... Randy had a significant drinking issue back in 2012 -- when he was busted for that naked DWI -- and has since given up alcohol for good.

Now, Randy's lawyer, Larry Friedman, tells TMZ ... Randy's health is on the upswing, but he still wants to get professional help so he can maintain his booze-free path to sobriety.

According to Friedman, Randy will continue recording as he goes through treatment ... and plans on releasing two albums by the end of the year.

It's paying off too -- Friedman tells TMZ, Randy's record sales are up ... and bookings recently reached an all-time high.

Glad to hear this. Randy's voice is so pure. Nothing but pleasure listening to him sing. Don't know if drinking was the result of the divorce or the cause itself for the divorce. If the later maybe they can salvage at least their friendship after that ugly divorce. Not only had they been married over twenty years, she had been his manager for probably over thirty years. No more naked romps Randy. At least no more out of the privacy of your own home.

He won't get better if he continues to treat his alcoholism as something to work on "between albums" Get yourself fixed, then go back to work. This is NOT a joke.

When did he realize he had an alcohol problem ? Everyone blanks up now and then. Just because he was drunk and naked when he crashed his trans am doesn't mean he has a problem with alcohol. He might be a problems with being naked. I am sure the guy at the convenience store had a problem with it when he stopped in for a pack of smokes. Nothing wrong with being sober and who knows maybe he will crash his cars less and get laid more. Could be a win win situation.
