Travis Tritt ‘Really Excited’ About Live DVD Taping
Travis Tritt released ‘The Calm After …’ in 2013, which was his first set of new tunes in six years. Now, the country music hitmaker is working on a live DVD to share with his fans in the new year as well.
Tritt will perform two shows at the Franklin Theatre, just outside of Nashville, on Jan. 13-14, which will mark his first live shows in the Music City area since 2002. The singer will be joined for the shows by several of his famous friends, including Marty Stuart, Kid Rock and James Otto.
“I get to leave the audience with not only the music but the influences that I grew up with and it’s really, really a lot of fun for me,” Tritt tells Nashville’s Tennessean of the acoustic shows. “It’s been a long time since I’ve performed here. I’m excited. Really excited.”
The 50-year-old released his latest album on his own label, Post Oak Records, which he says was one of the wisest decisions he has made in his lengthy career.
“I’ve got to tell you, I’m more energized — I’ve never lost the love for performing, for going out on stage and making music for fans,” he explains to The Boot. “I’ve never lost the love for creating new music, for writing, producing, being in the studio. But I’m more energized by having this opportunity now than I can remember being at any point in my career. It’s so exciting to have this opportunity at this point in time.”
In addition to spending much of 2014 on the road, performing songs from ‘The Calm After…,’ Tritt will also return to the studio, this time to narrate an upcoming film about Walt Disney, ‘As Dreamers Do.’
Tickets for the live DVD taping start at $100 and are available for purchase here.
