Travis Tritt Teams With Marty Stuart Again, And They're At Grand

This appeared in the Wilmington News Journal - November 21, 2008

Remember when it only cost a quarter to call someone who cares?

Well, it was all the way back in 1991 when country star Travis Tritt sang "Here's a Quarter (Call Someone Who Cares)" on his first platinum album.

At that same time, he and Marty Stuart began collaborating on monster hits like "This One's Gonna Hurt You (For a Long, Long Time)" and "The Whiskey Ain't Workin'."

Seventeen years later, Tritt and Stuart are back together on tour, stopping at The Grand, 818 North Market Street, Wilmington (Delaware) at 8 tonight.

Expect the two alone on stage sitting on barstools with their guitars. Stuart will be sure to have his trusty mandolin with him as they trade off songs and sing plenty of duets.

A highlight of this tour seems to be their slow version of Johnny Cash's "I Walk the Line," which the two sang at Cash's memorial service at the Ryman Auditorium in Nashville in 2003.
