The younger brother of country singer Randy Travis is facing drug charges in Union County.

Sheriff’s deputies say David "Butter" Traywick was taken into custody last week during a raid at the family farm in Marshville.

Travis, who lives in Texas and changed his name early in his music career, has been arrested at least three times in the last year.

That includes an August arrest for driving while intoxicated, wrecking his car and then laying nude in the middle of a highway.

Authorities said the 49-year old is suspected of cooking meth in a makeshift lab near his home.
