Travis Tritt’s Label Head Investigated

The head of Category 5 Records, the record label of Travis Tritt, Sammy Kershaw and other stars, is being investigated by Connecticut state officials for allegedly misappropriating Medicaid money.

Raymond Termini, CEO of Haven Healthcare, is also the president and CEO of Category 5 Records, which is based in Nashville. State officials in Connecticut are investigating whether he used Medicaid money improperly. Termini has declared that money for the record label and a lakeside home in Middlefield, Conn., came from refinancing some of Haven Healthcare’s properties, transactions he maintains did not affect patient care. Haven Healthcare has been fined more than 45 times in three years by state and federal health agencies for poor patient care at its 25 nursing homes in New England. Travis’ manager Duke Cooper reports that Travis has had difficulties with the record label and is prepared to take legal action against Termini to protect his interests. Travis is especially concerned about reports of poor nursing home conditions. Cooper says, “Travis being a family man . . . certainly doesn’t condone any of that, if it turns out to be true. It’s a sad situation.”
