As part of a year-long celebration commemorating twenty-five years in the music business, Travis Tritt made an appearance at CMA Fest on Friday, June 6.
The Grammy-winning Georgia native kicked off his opening set with "Put Some Drive In Your Country" from his debut "Country Club" album. A crowd of over 70,000 danced and clapped as Travis name-dropped heroes such as the Roy Acuff, George Jones, and Waylon Jennings.
A hit that struck big at radio over a decade ago, "Modern Day Bonnie and Clyde" followed. Another monstrous single from his "Down the Road I Go" masterpiece, "It's A Great Day To Be Alive" had the crowd swaying in the aisles.
The fast-paced rollicking "T-R-O-U-B-L-E" from his 1992 album of the same name showed that the virtuous musician is not only as entertaining as he was when he rocked his long locks and was a regular face in music, movies, and television, but the fact that his voice is stronger than ever.
Travis Tritt made a surprise return to the stage when fellow Georgian Jason Aldean invited him to perform with him later that evening. The pair performed "Homesick" which has remained on Travis' set list constantly throughout his touring tenure.
Along with wowing the crowd at LP Field, Travis Tritt was also a featured guest at pal Marty Stuart's Late Night Jam at the Ryman Auditorium during CMA Fest. The two announced that they are recording an album of duets together. Travis Tritt's latest album, "The Calm After..." hit stores last July.
