Grand Casino Hinckley, Hinkley, MN on May 17, 2003
In the Minnesota Wild with Marty & Travis
This was my 2nd Marty show of the year. How great to have him in our state twice in four months! Grand Casino Hinckleys amphitheater was the location, as he opened for his brother Travis Tritt. The sun was about to set in central Minnesota, Johnny Cash was ringing out on the house speakers, and then he came out. He sang new songs from his forthcoming CD: Too Much Month at the End of the Money, Farmers Blues, and got down and dirty on the Rock Island Line. Travis came out, in street clothes, and sang This Ones Gonna Hurt You with him. Very Cool! The Fabulous Superlatives sang individually on a couple numbers, including Kenny Vaughan on Country Musics Got a Hold on Me. Marty played hits like Tempted, Burn Me Down, and encored with Hey Baby. Kinda wished he wouldve sang some songs from The Pilgrim. But the highlight of the night was when the guys sang I Walk the Line and Peace in the Valley in tribute to the late, great June Carter Cash. Then he asked everyone to pray for Johnny, to give him strength; that he needed it now more than ever. Amen.
Oh yeah, then Travis came out, rocked the house. But my travels were made that day to see brother Marty. And he didnt let the family down. None tall
