Lib Hatcher was married to Frank Hatcher when she met Randy Travis in 1977. Travis, 17 years old at the time, had come to her nightclub for an audition. Soon Travis moved in with Libby and her husband in their home. In 1980, she left her husband of 10 years and moved out with Travis.
In 1982, they moved to Nashville. In 1986, with Libby as his manager, Travis released his first album, "Storms of Life," a big hit with five number-one singles. Although 16 years apart, their love grew, and Libby acted as the guiding hand for Travis' career. They tied the knot in a private ceremony in 1991. She was 48 years old, and he was 32.Learn more about Art & Literature
