Music icon and Country Music Hall of Famer Randy Travis has signed with Zach Farnum‘s entertainment firm, 117 Publicity. With multiple high-profile projects on the horizon, including an autobiography and a full-length documentary, the 117 team will represent Travis exclusively throughout the media landscape.

With lifetime sales in excess of 25 million, Travis’ honors extend to seven Grammy Awards, 10 Academy of Country Music statuettes, 10 American Music Awards, two People’s Choice awards, seven Music City News awards, eight Dove Awards from the Gospel Music Association and five Country Music Association honors.

“Randy Travis is easily one of the most accomplished and renowned superstars in the history of the music industry,” said Zach Farnum, President & CEO of 117 Entertainment Group. “He is an influencer of nearly every artist that has come onto the country scene since he first topped the chart in the mid ‘80s, pivoted an entire movement for the genre and has garnered innumerable major awards and iconic hits. We are thrilled to work with him, celebrate his monumental success and build on future opportunities,” said

Since his near fatal stroke in 2013, with the help of his wife Mary and rigorous physical therapy, Travis continues to make improvements in his speaking, walking, and yes, singing.

117 Entertainment Group specializes in management and publicity and marketing campaigns for musicians, events and brands representing the likes of Jerry Lee Lewis, Chuck Negron, Lee Roy Parnell, Bobby Bare, Logan Mize, Lewis Brice, Paul Bogart and Scooter Brown Band, just to name a few.
