‘Travis Tritt: A Man And His Guitar’ set for PBS

Multi-award winning artist and country music hit-maker Travis Tritt continues to check off boxes in his illustrious career. Following the release of his live two disc CD and DVD, titled A Man and His Guitar – Live From the Franklin Theatre, the concert event is scheduled to air as special programming on PBS stations across the country (check local listings).

Filmed and recorded in an intimate setting at the historic Franklin Theatre in Franklin, Tennessee, Travis Tritt: A Man and His Guitar spotlights Tritt’s distinctively soulful voice, his exceptional guitar prowess, and features Tritt at his best, performing a fresh take on some of his biggest hits, including “Help Me Hold On,” “Anymore,” and “Best of Intentions,” in a stripped down, pure form. Previously unreleased renditions of “Come and Go Blues” and “Pickin’ At It” are also included in the program. This presentation of Tritt’s performance features television hosts Nan Kelley and Brian Mansfield along with special in-concert guests Marty Stuart and James Otto.

The southern-rock influenced artist is also coming off a 32-city sold out solo acoustic tour, with a second leg of shows already in full swing. Forthcoming show dates and markets are listed below, with new dates continuously being added.

The Georgia native hit another milestone in his career when he recently celebrated his 25th anniversary of becoming an Opry member. Tritt performed and received a commemorative plaque presented by John Conlee celebrating his long-lived relationship with the Opry. While standing inside the famous six-foot circle on stage, Tritt expressed his gratitude by telling the crowd that this was the “biggest honor of my life.”
