Randy Travis Is Fit As A Fiddle

Posted by Lisa Ann Schleipfer on 07/18/2008

Country Music superstar Randy Travis is busy promoting the release of his new country album, Around the Bend, but he's not too busy to fit in fitness.  At least, that's what he told GAC for the new episode of CMA Celebrity Close Up.

The 49 year-old goes to the gym for an hour or more six days a week, a schedule he has stuck to for 30 years.

There have been a few variations in his choice of workouts. For example, Travis gave up running to save his knees. The gospel/country singer also told GAC he used to engage in vigorous karate workouts with band mate Gary Carter, but injuries caused him to rethink the plan.  "My nose has been rebuilt three times," he said. "You get tired of that."

To catch the full interview, tune into GAC at 9:00 p.m. EST on Saturday, July 19.
