Count country music star Travis Tritt among the many people who are happy that “normal” seems to be returning to us.

Travis Tritt, like most musicians, was forced to sit out live shows during 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Ask any music artist that they love most and several, if not all, will tell you it is performing in front of a live audience. Several musicians note the great energy provided by a live audience is a real adrenaline rush that they crave. Now, some artists are beginning to slowly, but surely, start performing live shows again in an effort to return to normalcy. Travis Tritt is one of those artists and performed for a nice-sized crowd in West Virginia earlier this week. As he often does, the singer and songwriter provides a few snapshots of his latest performance for his fans and social media followers.

“Great time in Wheeling, West Virginia tonight!” he says in the post’s caption space. “Live free or die!”

Travis Tritt Fans Respond to Social Media Post

As is the case with many of his social media posts, fans chime in to thank Travis Tritt for the wonderful show. Other fans and social media users say they are looking for to seeing the country star in the near future. Others ask when they might get to see Tritt perform live in their hometown.

“It was so nice to go to an in-person concert,” a Travis Tritt fan says. “Travis, you put on an awesome acoustical show.” 

While the show drew a sizeable crowd, attendees were very mindful of the COVID-19 precautions still in place. Travis Tritt’s photos reveal that the audience practiced social distancing by sitting in arranged seat spread out through the auditorium. Audience members also wore protective face masks in an effort to limit the spread of the coronavirus.

While we aren’t there yet, it is clear to see that America is slowly beginning to recover from the pandemic. It may seem small, but the return of live music is a big step in the right direction. Though he isn’t exactly playing to sold-out arenas yet, Travis Tritt is contributing to the country’s recovery by providing an opportunity for recreation to people who have been cooped up indoors for a year.

To that we say, “Thank You Mr. Tritt” and keep up the good work. We are all in this together.
