Country Superstar Randy Travis was arrested last night in Tioga, Texas for driving while intoxicated. He also threatened to shoot and kill the troopers who arrested him last night, all while buck-naked.
Travis was driving a 1998 Trans-Am (REALLY?) and his car smashed into barricades. Randy himself was lying in the middle of the street. When Travis was put into the back of the trooper car, he was naked and rode bareback. That is when he started with the threats.
The above shot is Travis's official mug shot. The bruises and black eye are from the car accident.
Travis has posted bail at $21,500 and has been released.
Who would thought back in the day that Travis would be racking up these kind of records? This is Travis's 2nd DWI arrest this year.-DocFB
Skyelor Anderson performed "Nobody Knows" on X Factor and did well enough in my opinion to make it to the next round.
The song "Nobody Knows", originally performed and written by Tony Rich, was covered a few years later by country singer Kevin Sharp. What Skyelor did was Sharp's version of the song.
Rihanna and L.A. Reid seemed pleased with the performance but seemed worried he is only doing the country drawl which leads me to believe they may not have known of the pre-existing country version of the song.
I hope that L.A. picks an R & B only song next time. Skyelor's voice is powerful and does not need to be pigeonholed as a country singer.
What do you think?-DocFB

We showed you the debut video for American Idol runner-up Lauren Alaina's new video yesterday. Today, we give you the debut video from the winner of American Idol, Scotty McCreery. "I Love You This Big" is his newest and first video.
The video was shot by Shane Drake while Scotty was in rehearsals for the American Idol tour. It was shot in Angels point, with Dodger stadium on one side and downtown L.A. on the other side.
“We found this park that had a little country feel to it and it all worked out,” he says. “If I hadn’t told you that, you would think we would have shot that in North Carolina. The music video has a summertime barbecue feel, like a July Fourth party with fireworks and hot dogs and families.”
North Carolina in L.A.? Hmm. Scotty wants to drop the news first on his own site www.scottymccreery-official.com before other places like us so the fans who supported him on Idol can get the news first.
Scotty is currently on tour with the AI tour through September and will be on Good Morning America this Friday. We hope he doesn't have a nip slip like Nicki Minaj had last Friday on Good Morning America. What?
Check out "I Love You This Big" which is the fastest rising country song in the past 7 weeks. It is the highest debut for a country artist since 1984.-Dr.FB
Diagnosis: How Big? That's What She Said
Here is Lauren Alaina, the runner-up on American Idol this year, debuting "Like My Mother Does", her first video.
This years American Idol was dominated by country music with both the first 2 acts having a country background. It didn't hurt Carrie Underwood, did it? We have a feeling it won't hurt the winner of AI, Scotty McCreery either.
We are not the biggest country fans anymore. We went through a Shania Twain and Faith Hill phase like most of America is all.
Check out the debut video of Lauren Alaina and let us know what you think.-Dr.FB
Diagnosis: I Do It Like My Doggy Does
Kid Rock has a new CD coming out with the same title "Born Free" tomorrow and if you are expecting some of his rap n rock, think again.
We are hearign the CD is closer to country rock if anything. Rock has did this before. We are not sure how his hardcore fans will respond to it.
Check out "Born Free" by Kid Rock and let me know what you think.-Dr.FB
