About The Event
Enjoy a special evening with CMA and Grammy award winning country artist, Travis Tritt, on Thursday, October 14 at Johnny Mercer Theatre in Savannah. This show, which will include Tritt’s band, will give attendees an opportunity to hear some of the performer’s biggest hits, including “T-R-O-U-B-L-E,” “It’s A Great Day to Be Alive” and “Best of Intentions.” Plan to sing along with Tritt’s vast catalog of crowd favorites like “Modern Day Bonnie and Clyde” and “Here’s a Quarter — songs that have created a devoted fan base that continues to sell-out shows across the globe. Tritt will also perform favorites off his new album, Set In Stone, that was just released this year. Bringing his award-winning songs to life, the Grand Ole Opry member will leave the audience with a truly memorable experience.
From helping reunite the legendary Eagles to being mentored by such icons as Waylon Jennings, Kenny Rogers, and Charlie Daniels to becoming a member of the Grand Ole Opry, music has opened many doors that the talented Georgia native has boldly walked through and left his own indelible mark. With the release of Set in Stone, Tritt embarks on the next chapter of his stellar career armed with the distinctive voice, insightful songwriting, guitar prowess, and outlaw edge that have served him well for more than three decades.
Tritt’s albums, seven of which are certified platinum or higher, led him to amass more than 30 million in career album sales, two GRAMMY® Awards, four CMA Awards and a devoted fan base that has filled venues coast-to-coast. His 1990 debut Country Club and its succession of hits put him in the vanguard of the genre's early '90s boom, dubbing him as one of “The Class of ‘89,” which included country music superstars Garth Brooks, Clint Black and Alan Jackson; all
whom dominated the charts in the early ‘90s.
Opening support for this show will be Texas Hill, a gritty amalgam of overlapping tastes and distinct voices that meet in the middle as a bold harmonic trio. Craig Wayne Boyd offers a voice full of gospel-tinged country smoke, Adam Wakefield blends a rootsy bluegrass-and-Americana rasp, and Casey James wraps it with a blue-eyed soul quality and deft blues guitar chops. The result is a band that’s both rock solid and highly adaptive. Texas Hill is instantly identifiable, thanks to its well-developed signature sound: a proud, in-your-face harmonic wall. But each of the three singers can, and does, take over the lead, inevitably pushing the group in his own unique direction while those harmonies allow the whole ensemble to hang on to its sonic center.
Reserved seat tickets range in price from $39 to $89. Tickets go on sale Friday, July 30 at 10 a.m. at ticketmaster.com and savannahcivic.com.
