Five weeks later, Bachmann has found a musician to take her side. Country star Randy Travis will perform at an Aug. 13 straw poll event Bachmann is hosting in Iowa.

“I am a huge Randy Travis fan and I am honored he will be with us on August 13 to help make this day fun and meaningful for our supporters and their families,” Bachmann said in a statement.

Country singers Richie McDonald and Tim Rushlow, and Christian artist Charles Billingsley are also scheduled to perform.
