Tritt presents country hits July 26

Written by 

art trittCountry music megastar Travis Tritt will perform at 7:30 p.m. Saturday, July 26, at the Smoky Mountain Center for the Performing Arts in Franklin.

A country music artist whose style has been described as mainstream country with Southern rock influences, Tritt released his first album in 1989. He was one of the leading new country singers of the early ‘90s and held his own against other newcomers, including Garth Brooks, Clint Black and Alan Jackson. His bluesy, rock sound helped him to develop a gutsy, outlaw image that distinguished him from the pack. 

Throughout his career, Tritt has had seven albums certified platinum or higher.  His highest-certified album was “It’s All About to Change,” which was certified triple-platinum. He has landed on the Hot Country Songs charts more than 40 times, including five number one and fifteen additional top ten hits. His most popular hits include, “Help Me Hold On,” “Anymore,” “Can I Trust You with My Heart,” “Foolish Pride,” and “Best of Intentions.”

Tritt has received two Grammy Awards, both for Best Country Collaboration with Vocals. In 1992 he won for “The Whisky Ain’t Workin,” a duet with Marty Stuart. In 1998, he won for “Same Old Train,” a collaboration with Stuart and nine other artists. Tritt has also received four awards from the Country Music Association and has been a member of the Grand Old Opry since 1992.

Tickets are $35 per person.

This Must Be the Place

  • This must be the place

    art theplaceI did it again. It’s 9 a.m. last Saturday at the starting line of the Cashiers Trail Mix five-mile backwoods race. I knew I should have gotten more sleep the night before, should have at least had something to eat that morning. Shouldn’t have overindulged in the libations of Friday night, nor said the things I now regretted to my girlfriend.
