    I remember my jaw dropped when I read that Randy Travis re-signed with Lib Hatcher’s management company at the same time that they got divorced. Either he got some really derelict advice–or he ignored the good advice that he got. The likelihood of a conflict of interest was glaring. I hope for Travis’s sake, he can get himself out of it. The guy is a true hall-of-famer.
