Music that will warm your heart…
and a message that could change your life!
Thank you for choosing to stop by the website of the Traveling Talleys.
At the age of two weeks old, Paul Talley began traveling to 83 countries and all 50 states with his evangelist/musician parents, Joe and Marion Talley. The “Talley Evangelistic Team” ministered in word and song not only in churches and on radio and TV around the world, but also to dignitaries such as Billy Graham. In addition to spreading the gospel, they recorded songs that we sing yet today. The senior Talleys, along with their children, Paul and Carolyn, were the original “Traveling Talleys.”
Paul grew up being schooled through correspondence courses and learned to play numerous instruments. His musical abilities allowed him to minister in music right alongside his parents. As a young adult entering college, however, Paul began to stray from the Christian foundation that had been the very essence of his upbringing. He used his musical talents in country and rock bands, embarked on a daily life of drugs and alcohol, and was literally on a path to destruction when he was offered music contracts from both Warner Brothers and MCA records. Such notoriety would surely make him what the world would call “successful,” but a godly mother had a different idea as to how her son should live his life, and every day for eighteen years she prayed that he would come to know the Lord.
In 1982 on Virginia Beach, Virginia, God asked Paul Talley to turn his life around and live for Him. Much to the disappointment of Paul’s fellow band members, Paul gave his life totally and completely to the Lord and began a new life in Him. Paul and his wife Cindy’s desire to live for Christ by sharing their music and spreading the salvation message of the Cross of Jesus is the basis of the ministry they take from coast to coast every year as “The Traveling Talleys.”
