Travis Tritt is one proud papa.
The country music star took to Twitter on Friday night to share a photo of himself performing live in Southaven, Mississippi with his daughter, Tyler Reese Tritt. Tyler seems to have inherited her dad’s musical talent, performing multiple duets with him over the years.
“What a fabulous night we had in Southaven, Mississippi tonight!” Travis Tritt tweeted. “I also got to perform with my daughter on Father’s Day weekend! I’m so very blessed! Happy Father’s Day to all the Dads everywhere!”
Travis Tritt and Daughter Tyler Have Performed Together Before
Tyler has performed duets with her father before. In fact, in 2013, the two recorded their take on the classic “Sometimes Love Just Ain’t Enough” by Don Henley and Patty Smyth.
In a press release, Travis Tritt explained that Tyler discovered the song on a drive home from Florida while they were listening to music on an iPod.
“She started singing along in the backseat,” Tritt said. “When it ended she made me play it again five or six more times. When we got home, I told my wife that I thought Tyler Reese could really do a great job on this song. We agreed and I took her in the studio to sing her parts. She really nailed it.”

Tyler Released Her Debut Single in 2017
Tyler launched her music career with the single “Perfect,” released on Nov. 3, 2017. Jesse Owen Astin produced and co-wrote the song with Adam Folsom and Dionne Osborne. It’s about a first love that grows out of a friendship.
“Music means everything to me,” Tyler said in a statement upon the single’s release. “It’s all I’ve ever known. I’ve chosen to pursue it because I loved the way I felt when I was on stage singing, even at such a young age.”
She added that she hoped the song was relatable. Her goal, she said, was to take listeners back to their senior year of high school so they could relive all the angst and excitement of that time.
Tyler released the single after going on tour with her dad for a year. She was the opening act at Travis Tritt concerts and festivals across the country. And the experience doesn’t seem to have dimmed her enthusiasm for a career in the music industry.
In fact, as her Father’s Day weekend performance shows, Tyler still seems to love singing in public. And what better compliment could she pay her dad than to follow in his footsteps?
