Travis Tritt and his glorious mullet are ready for the Super Bowl. So, the legendary country music artist took to Twitter to show just how ready he really is for the game.

During Super Bowl 34, Travis Tritt was down in front of the cameras, posing gloriously with a football. The singer posted a picture of him with his arm cocked back, hand out, and hair flowing ready to throw a long bomb. You just have to admit that he would have been an awesome looking quarterback in the NFL.

But, for Super Bowl 28, he was chosen as one of the performing artists for halftime. This is certainly a memory that the country singer hasn’t forgotten about.

On January 30, 1994, the Super Bowl was in Atlanta. The Dallas Cowboys were playing the Buffalo Bills for the Vince Lombardi trophy. Ultimately, the Cowboys were able to defeat the Bills 30-13. O.J. Simpson was even one of the announcers for the game.

But the real story of the game came at the halftime performance. Some of country music’s biggest stars took the stage to share the short concert. Clint Black, Tanya Tucker, Travis Tritt, Wynona Judd, and Naomi Judd all were on stage. For the finale, the group really sealed the show with, “Love Can Build A Bridge.”

But Travis Tritt’s performance is still remembered as a Super Bowl favorite. Alongside Black, Tucker, and the Judds, he sang “Tuckered Out,” “It’s a Little Too Late,” “T-R-O-U-B-L-E,” “No One Else on Earth” all before the finale.

During his illustrious career, he has done really well for himself. His first album, Country Club spent 26 weeks, half of the year, on the Hot Country Single and Tracks chart. Additionally, the album peaked at number nine.

Travis Tritt’s second single, “Help Me Hold On” was his first number-one hit. That was only four years before accepting the Super Bowl 28 gig. But he quickly began churning out more hits. “I’m Gonna Be Somebody” and “Drift Off to Dream” did well, peaking at number two and number three, respectively.

It has been 26 years since Travis Tritt’s performance, but it is one that won’t be forgotten anytime soon. Neither his fans nor he will let anyone ignore that show.
