Country music legend Randy Travis has been inducted into the Louisiana Music Hall of Fame (LMHOF), adding yet another accolade to his extraordinary list of career achievements.

Travis was officially inducted by LMHOF President Mike Shepard during a special ceremony on May 27, 2023 as part of the Cajun Country Jam’s Memorial Day Festival in Denham Springs, Louisiana. The country icon recorded his first studio recordings under the name “Randy Ray” at Paula Records in Shreveport, La. Travis joins a “sacred group” of LMHOF inductees that includes Elvis Presley, Jerry Lee Lewis, Louis Armstrong, Lucinda Wiliams, Buddy Guy, Little Richard, Fats Domino, Tim McGraw and countless others.

“Over the years Randy Travis has made many stops and new fans along the way in the great state of Louisiana," said Cajun Country Jam promoter Scott Innes, adding, “we are delighted and honored to have had Randy on our stage!”

With lifetime sales in excess of 25 million, Randy Travis is one of the biggest multi-genre record sellers of all time and a recent inductee into the Country Music Hall of Fame class of 2016. His honors include seven Grammy Awards, 11 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.

In addition, three of his performances earned CMA Song of the Year honors: “On the Other Hand” (1986), “Forever and Ever Amen” (1987) and “Three Wooden Crosses” (2002). To date, he has 23 No. 1 singles, 31 Top-10 smashes and more than 40 appearances in feature films and television shows to his credit.
