NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) – Randy Travis and his wife-manager, Elizabeth Travis, are splitting.
A statement from Elizabeth Travis on Friday says they have “agreed to part ways.” The statement did not indicate whether they had filed for divorce. Neither could be reached for comment.
The couple has had a 34-year business and personal relationship that began when a teenage Travis won a talent contest at his future wife’s North Carolina nightclub in the mid-1970s. They married in 1991.
Elizabeth Travis says she will remain Travis’ personal manager.
She guided Randy Travis’ career after he won the talent contest and he eventually became one of country music’s biggest stars, winning six Grammys.
