Country music fans were in for a rare treat on Sunday night in Bel Air. Grammy®-Award-winning country music megastar Travis Tritt and the Country Club Band performed at the APG Federal Credit Union Arena at Harford Community College on November 3 in front of more than 2,300 fans from several states. Up-and-comer country music singer Lyndsey Highlander opened the show.
Travis rocked the house for a full two hours telling fans that they were "gonna get their money’s worth" and performed such classic/signature songs as “The Whiskey Ain't Workin” and songs from his newly released album titled “The Calm After . . . " Travis also performed a solo acoustic set.
According to Greg Pizzuto, General Manager for the APGFCU Arena, this was the largest HCC-sponsored concert to date – Tritt played to a nearly sold-out crowd. Fans from Pennsylvania, Delaware, Maryland, D.C., and Virginia joined together to enjoy hearing the country music superstar in the Arena, the largest indoor venue in Northeastern Maryland. There were lots of people wearing cowboy hats and boots, and a fun time was had by all.
Singer/songwriter Tritt has been in the limelight since his first album debuted in 1990. It was followed by several more albums and scores of hit singles. Over the years, he has amassed more than 25 million in career album sales. In addition, Tritt has won two Grammys® and three CMA Awards and performed at such renowned venues as the 1996 Olympics in Atlanta, Georgia, two Super Bowls, a World Series game, the opening of the Georgia Dome, and the 2013 NCAA Men’s Basketball Championship.
In his recently-released single “Sometimes Love Just Ain’t Enough,” a song originally performed by Patty Smyth and Don Hensley, Tritt performs a duet with his 15-year-old daughter Tyler Reese.
The concert was sponsored by country music station WXCY103.7 FM.
