  • Randy Travis' Family Substance Abuse Saga. Remember all of Travis' alcohol-fueled problems of 2012? It gets worse. As Travis was recovering from his stroke, his brother and sister-in-law were busted for running a meth lab inside their North Carolina home.
  • Jason Aldean's Night With an Idol contestant. Jason Aldean was caught getting all hot and friendly at an L.A. bar with former Idol contestant Brittany Kerr. He blamed the booze. Six months later, Aldean and his wife Jessica filed for divorce.

  • LeAnn Rimes' Daddy Drama. In 2000, at the age of 17, Rimes sued her own father, accusing him and her co-manager of cheating her out of $7 million. Rimes and her father patched things up just in time for her wedding to backup dancer Dean Sheremet, which lead to another great country scandal.

  • Kenny Chesney and Renee Zellwegger's Quickie Marriage. After a whirlwind romance, Kenny married the Oscar-winning actress. They split after four months. Zellwegger filed for an annulment, citing "fraud." The two later blamed “the miscommunication of the objective of their marriage at the start.” Kenny also was forced to deny rumors he is gay.
  • Mrs. Ted Nugent's Packed Purse. Just last week, Ted Nugent's wife Shemane was busted trying to bring a handgun through security at Dallas/Forth Worth International.
