North Texas is a long way away from Giants country, but that didn’t stop country singer Randy Travis from celebrating too much.
During the wee hours of Monday morning, the Denton County Sheriff’s Department said an officer found Travis sitting in his car next to an open bottle of wine, and smelling like alcohol in the parking lot at the First Baptist Church.
At first Travis used the oldest country singer excuse in the book for public intoxication—a fight with this girlfriend. But after a short stay in the Denton County jail, the performer released an apology for “what resulted following an evening of celebrating the Super Bowl.” At least he didn’t try and say his dog died and his truck broke down.
