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.

Chris Richards is The Washington Post's pop music critic. He has recently written about the best recordings and lyrics of 2015.
