Travis Tritt posted a video of an impressively loud and colorful fireworks show and pronounced his Fourth of July to be a good one.
He introduced the video on Instagram, writing “Had a wonderful day celebrating America’s birthday. Great food, fun, friends and fireworks capped off a day of freedom! God bless America! US”
The Travis Tritt post, Monday, was a follow-up to a photo he shared from earlier in the holiday weekend. He took a photo of his backyard pool to show how parts of his house were decorated in patriotic red, white and blue.
Travis Tritt Announced He’s Boycotting Olympics
Travis Tritt was very active on social media in the lead-up to the Fourth of July. He also announced he won’t be watching the Olympics, which are scheduled to start later this month in Tokyo. He tweeted:
“I’ve always been a huge supporter of our USA Olympic teams. I was actually onstage at the Olympics in Atlanta the night before the bombing in 1996. I won’t be watching this year. #GowokeGobroke”
Although Tritt didn’t mention anyone by name in his “#gowokegobroke” post, he likely was talking about Gwen Berry, the hammer thrower, who turned her back while the national anthem played at the U.S. Track and Field Trials. Berry finished third at the trials in an event the United States never has medaled in since it was first included at the 2000 Olympics. And Berry continues to draw heavy criticism from Republicans for her anthem protest. She’ll be one of almost 600 American athletes headed to Tokyo.
Fans Can See Country Star On Tour with Brooks & Dunn
Travis Tritt is staying political with one of his upcoming gigs. He’s scheduled to give a concert at a benefit for Vernon Jones, a candidate in the Republican primary for Georgia governor. The fundraiser is a boat parade, July 14.
Travis Tritt also will be part of the Brooks & Dunn “Reboot” Tour. The series of concerts kicks off on Sept. 2 in Indianapolis with stops in Chicago, Cincinnati and Dallas. The concert is significant because it’ll be the first time Kix Brooks and Ronnie Dunn will be on tour together in 10 years.
Fans of Travis Tritt also can look forward to July 16. That’s the day of the release of Charlie Daniel’s Duets album. Daniels died last summer. The 19-song album honors his collaborations with numerous country stars including Travis Tritt, Dolly Parton, Brooks & Dunn, Darius Rucker and Marty Stuart.
