In the early ’90s, Travis Tritt and Marty Stuart were two country originals who did things just a little different from everybody else. That’s why the two of them became fast friends and launched the No Hats Tour, since neither of them wore cowboy hats like their contemporaries such as Garth Brooks, Clint Black and Alan Jackson.
Their friendship produced the hit song, “The Whiskey Ain’t Workin’,” and now the two of them have reunited to perform that song on Travis’ new live project, “A Man and His Guitar — Live from the Franklin Theatre.” The DVD and two-disc CD release features 24 songs Travis performed during his solo acoustic concert at the Franklin Theatre just south of Nashville.
In addition to two collaborations with Marty, Travis also welcomed James Otto to join him for a duet on “Lord Have Mercy on the Working Man.” The set list also includes Travis’ signature hits like “Where Corn Don’t Grow,” “I’m Gonna Be Somebody,” “Here’s a Quarter,” “Anymore” and “T-R-O-U-B-L-E.”
As a nod to his honky-tonk heroes, Travis covers classics from Waylon Jennings, Willie Nelson, Johnny Cash and Hank Williams Jr., too.
Travis’ “A Man and His Guitar — Live from The Franklin Theatre” is available now.
