CMA Vocal Event Of The Year Nominees

Marty Stuart and Travis Tritt: "Honky Tonkin's What I Do Best"

This appeared in Country Weekly - October 1, 1996

The Bad Boys of Country put on their party boots again to come up with another smoking single, "Honky Tonkin's What I Do Best."

The single is also the title cut from Marty's latest album, which peaked at No. 27 on the country charts. But Travis and Marty aren't just back together on records. They're touring the country as well in a rocking concert package similar to their previous "No Hats" tour of the early '90s.

Besides being a close friend, Marty also says of Tritt's raw, country-rock sound: "I'm a fan of Travis and I respect his work. I think he's one of the more important singers there are in country music. Plus I love him like a brother."

In turn, fans seem to love the music that these two firebrands consistently deliver. A victory here would give Marty, one of country's most knowledgeable historian, his first CMA Award. Travis won the Horizon Award from the CMA in 1991.

[Note from Sherry: Marty and Travis won the CMA Award for "Vocal Event Of The Year" in 1992 for "The Whiskey Ain't Workin' "]
