Country music star Travis Tritt took a quick trip back to 1991, posting a glorious concert poster that he said they “don’t make ’em like that no more.”

Those were the days. Right around the time Billboard Magazine named Tritt country music’s Top New Male Artist in 1990.

Fans Love The Travis Tritt Poster

Twitter fans reveled in the 58-year-old’s post.

Interestingly enough, the singer’s “Here’s a Quarter (Call Someone Who Cares)” hit came out around that time. It was a simpler time when the pay telephones were out. Remember those? See kids, there were these phones, and you put quarters in the slot to call people. And they went up from 25 cents in price over the years. 

One comedian had a little fun with it, saying, “The 3rd best selling poster at Spencer Gifts in 1991 behind David Hasselhoff and MC Hammer. Shoppers would buy a Travis Tritt poster, snake in a peanut jar and fake dog poop. Then they’d go home and get an update on Baby Jessica trapped in a well.”

Others tried to make Tritt feel old, saying that it was their first birthday or 23rd birthday.

Seriously, this black-and-white photo poster is so old you have to be amazed at Tritt’s fine locks of hair.

Thankfully, one bandmate talked him out of working two jobs when he started out. Reportedly, Tritt started his music career while working at an air conditioning company. Getting away from all those air conditioning chemicals probably helped keep his hair in top condition over the years.

Tritt Back On Tour .. With Tritt

On Thursday, Tritt his the tour road with his daughter, Tyler Reese Tritt. The father-daughter duo play in Troy, Ohio. She’ll make two more appearances on his upcoming tour.

Travis Tritt is touring to support his new album, “Set In Stone.” He co-wrote eight of the album’s 11 tracks.

The singer gave a classic response when he returned to the studio after 13 years for his upcoming album.

“The only answer I could come up with is, ‘It’s going to be a Travis Tritt album,’ and a Travis Tritt album to me represents everything I’ve ever done,” Tritt said.

Tritt Skipped Indiana Tour Stop

The singer announced on Oct. 7 that he wouldn’t play in Muncie, Indiana, because of the Ball State University mask mandate policy.

Fans shared their mixed feelings with Tritt on his Twitter post. Some cheered, some scratched their heads. Both Tritt and Emens Auditorium websites quickly scrubbed any concert date. 

Travis Tritt wraps up the American-Canadian leg of his tour on July 8. He’ll head to Telemark Fylke, Norway for a July 29 concert.
