Reno/Sparks, Nev.— One of the most enduring stars in the constellation of country music, Travis Tritt is a versatile performer who has secured major industry awards and sold millions of records to legions of fans. Catch Travis Tritt in a special acoustic show, one night only, Saturday, June 6, in the intimate Celebrity Showroom at John Ascuaga's Nugget. The show coincides with the third annual Street Vibrations Spring Rally motorcycle event taking place on Victorian Square, June 5-7.
Tritt led the charge of “new country” singers during the early 1990s, in the company of Garth Brooks, Clint Black, and Alan Jackson. He was the only one not to wear a hat, and the only one to dip into bluesy Southern rock. Consequently, he developed a gutsy, outlaw image that distinguished him from the pack. Throughout the early '90s, he had a string of platinum albums and Top Ten singles, including three number one hits.
The Storm (2007) is the latest in a seemingly unending album hit-parade in Tritt’s multi-decade career. This redefining release catapults Tritt to a whole new level. The Storm includes the current hit single "You Never Take Me Dancing." Songwriting credits on the album include Rob
Thomas, Richard Marx and Diane Warren. The Storm is a brand new album with a little bit of something for everyone. Tritt and Randy Jackson teamed up to create a radio friendly powerhouse collection of songs that emphasize the irresistible soul side of Tritt's singing.
Born and raised in Marietta, Georgia, Tritt was an early and eager student of music, picking up guitar at age eight, singing in his church youth choir and playing in bluegrass, rock and country bands through his teens. His honky tonk history started when he applied his blue-collar work ethic to the diverse sounds of Southern popular music. Tritt spent years playing small clubs where he was expected to be able to cover everything from Hank Williams to Otis Redding to Skynyrd. And that apprenticeship served him well when he first began making overtures to Nashville. Armed with a well-defined sense of artistic direction and that unmistakable voice, Tritt landed a major label deal and launched an impressive career.
Travis Tritt plays one night only, Saturday, June 6, in the Celebrity Showroom at 8 p.m. Tickets are $79, and are available by calling (800) 648-1177 or (775) 356-3300 or click here. Dinner and show packages are available. “Do The Nugget Tonight!”
