Travis Tritt, Marty Stuart Reunite For Tour

This appeared on - June 24, 2008

Travis Tritt and Marty Stuart banded together on one of the best-remembered country jaunts of the 1990s, the No Hats Tour, and the duo is back at it this year with a multi-city acoustic tour.

The two have a long friendship that’s provided dividends both professionally and personally. They won the Country Music Association’s Vocal Event of the Year honor in 1992 with "This One’s Gonna Hurt You (For A Long, Long Time)" and took a Grammy for "The Whiskey Ain’t Workin’" in 1993. They also nabbed a hit with "Honky Tonkin’s What I Do Best"; were both contributors — along with Johnny Cash and Charlie Daniels — to the Grammy-nominated "The Devil Comes Back To Georgia"; and were among 13 artists on the Grammy-winning "Same Old Train." In addition, Marty served as best man when Travis got married in 1997. Travis met his wife, Theresa, when Marty threw a birthday party for him; Theresa had actually appeared in one of Marty’s videos.

The first dates lined up for the duo’s tour this fall include:

• Nov. 1 Temecula, California
• Nov. 2 Phoenix, Arizona
• Nov. 13 Wheeling, West Virginia
• Nov. 14 Charlottesville, Virginia
• Nov. 15 Harrisburg, Pennsylvania
• Nov. 19 Easton, Pennsylvania
• Nov. 20 Indiana, Pennsylvania
• Nov. 21 Wilmington, Delaware
