A judge in Texas rejected country music singer Randy Travis' request to block the video showing his 2012 arrest from being released.

U.S. District Court Judge Sam Sparks has allowed the Texas Department of Public Safety (DPS) to make the arrest video showing an intoxicated Travis public on Thursday.?

The ruling comes about two months after the singer filed a lawsuit in federal court after repeated rulings from state judges that said the DPS could release the tape.??

The 58-year-old star's wife, Mary, was also denied a request by the federal court to sue on his behalf.?
