Randy Travis and his wife-manager Elizabeth Travis’ divorce became final Friday (Oct. 29), the couple’s longtime publicist confirmed to CMT.com. According to a written statement, “Elizabeth and Randy Travis have agreed to part ways. Elizabeth will remain Mr. Travis’ personal manager. They do not intend to comment any further and ask for your respect for their privacy during this time.”
The couple met in 1976 when Randy Travis, whose real name is Randy Traywick, was a 17-year-old performing in a Charlotte, N.C., nightclub she owned. After they moved to Nashville in 1981, he was discovered singing at the Nashville Palace, a nightclub she managed at the time. They married in 1991 and have no children.
