  • Randy Travis is facing the music.

    After a string of booze-fueled arrests in 2012, the 53-year-old country singer has "eliminated alcohol from his daily life," Travis' attorney, Larry Friedman, tells TMZ.

    With an increased interest in his health, Travis "works out three hours every day and is in the best shape of his life," according to Friedman. "He has a high-protein diet and takes a lot of vitamins."

    The "Look Heart, No Hands" singer was arrested Feb. 6 for public intoxication while sitting in his car at a Baptist church in Sanger, Texas. Travis paid a fine and was put on probation for 90 days.

    Five months later, the musician was arrested for driving while intoxicated. When cops arrived on the scene, he was completely nude, with his Pontiac Trans Am crashed into several barricades off the side of the road. TMZ reported that he threatened to shoot and kill the troopers working the case.

    Seventeen days later, on Aug. 24, Travis was cited for simple assault after getting into an argument with another man outside a church in Plano, Texas. He was said to be "extremely intoxicated" when he arrived at the local hospital.

    According to Friedman, Travis is currently working on new music.
