Travis Tritt fans know that his 2-disc CD set and DVD, “A man and His Guitar-Live From the Franklin Theatre,” has been available for a while now. A lot of fans have their copy. And, a lot of very fortunate fans have had the opportunity to see Travis on stage where he has been performing that show throughout the country. On Feb. 4, he was at the Paramount Theater in Bristol, Tenn. His tour schedule through the beginning of June is listed on his website. With hotels, casinos, theaters and other venues, in a host of cities across the country, listed – there is probably one close to you!
Norma McCoy, one of our Country’s Chatter friends, was at the show on Saturday night. “Travis did an acoustic show, and was on stage between 2-1/2 and 3 hours,” Norma told us “It was one of the best shows I’ve ever seen”. She told us that he talked to his audience throughout the show, sharing many stories with them.
“He did a tribute to Waylon Jennings, and one to Merle haggard,” Norma said. “He told us all how much he loved Johnny Cash”. Johnny and Travis were very close friends. “After Johnny died,” Norma continued, ”Travis went to the office in his house and got out a stack of letters that Johnny had written him over the years. Some were just short notes congratulating Travis on awards he had received over the years (Travis shared with his audience). “Others,” Travis said, “were five pages long, pouring our feelings.”
Travis told the sold-out crowd about when he first went to Nashville. “They considered me an outlaw,” Travis said. They never accepted him for who he was, and tried to change him. He rebelled. “Waylon Jennings told me not to worry about it, in the end, your fans are all that matters”, was the advice he gave Travis.. “As long as your fans show up at your shows and love hearing you, that’s what matters,” was what Waylon told me,” Travis said to his audience.
We have to give a huge thank you to Norma, for sharing her Travis Tritt concert experience with all of us. And, we invite others who attend concerts, take photos, and have stories to share to please let us know! We would be happy to share those with our readers.
