~~Randy Travis pleaded guilty to a misdemeanor charge of driving while intoxicated in connection with a one-car accident near his home in Tioga, Texas. Randy was sentenced to 24 months of probation, a $2,000 fine and a 180-day suspended jail sentence. He avoided a maximum sentence of up to two years in jail and a $4,000 fine.
A state trooper arrested Travis after law officers received a call about a naked man lying in the road. Leaving the courthouse Thursday, Travis told reporters, "I'm glad to have this behind me, and I'm looking forward to going out and making some music."
His next concert is scheduled on March 1 in Biloxi, Miss.
~~Steve Earle will release his new album, "The Low Highway", on April 16. It features his live band, The Dukes, and is Steve's 15th studio album since his 1986 debut project, "Guitar Town".
The project is Steve's ‘road record' as he explains in the album liner notes.
ALSO: On February 19, Steve will release a limited edition 7-inch of the album tracks "Burnin' It Down" and "That All You Got?" in support of Independent Music Stores. The record is available on red vinyl and is a limited edition pressing of 1,000. Each cover has been hand-signed by Steve and is hand-numbered.
Steve has also signed a two-book deal with Twelve, an imprint of Grand Central Publishing/Hachette Book Group.
