Country music star Travis Tritt recently revealed great news for his fans. If you avidly watch baseball, look forward to him singing the National Anthem tonight. That’s right, he’ll lead off Game 6 of the NCLS between the Braves and the Dodgers.
Announcing the exciting news on Twitter, Tritt nonchalantly mentions performing one of the most prestigious honors a musician in the US can.
Overall, people are excited. “That’s awesome!!! Maybe you will bring some good mojo to the Braves!!” one user wrote. Another hopes this isn’t a one-time deal and wants even more. “They could just have you do the Anthem every home game like they have Timothy Miller do God Bless America. I’m for it.”
Additionally, the best part is Game 6 happens tonight around 8 p.m. Eastern Time, so you won’t have to wait long.
Travis Tritt Cancels Concerts at Places Requiring Negative Covid Tests, Masks, or Vaccinations
In addition to the Twitter hype fans are showing Travis Tritt, many are also pointing out his recent concert cancellations. For reference, the country music star announced he canceled shows at venues requiring Covid vaccinations, masks, or negative tests.
These days, musicians and performers often cancel shows due to Covid and attendees not receiving vaccinations. However, Tritt announced he’s doing the opposite. He is canceling concerts at venues telling attendees to wear masks, be vaccinated, or show a negative Covid test. Via a press release on his website, Tritt gave his reasoning for the decision.
“I’m putting my money where my mouth is and announcing that any venue or promoter mandating masks, requiring vaccinations, or pushing COVID testing protocols on my fans will not be tolerated,” he commented. “Any show I have booked that discriminates against concert-goers by requiring proof of vaccination, a COVID test, or a mask is being canceled immediately. Many people are taking a firm stand against these mandates around the country, and I wholeheartedly support that cause.”
Furthermore, he states he’s been against such mandates since they began. He continues, saying “This is a sacrifice that I’m willing to make to stand up for the freedoms that generations of Americans have enjoyed for their entire lifetimes. There are plenty of promoters and venues around the country that appreciate fans and the freedom of choice in this great country, and those are the promoters and venues that I will be supporting.”
As of now, Tritt still plans to play at 13 concerts this year, though that may change. If you’re curious, check out his website for this year’s remaining locations, playtimes, and dates.
