Kentucky Derby, George Jones Event, The Storm Re-Release On Deck


(ATLANTA) Multi-platinum country performer and APA Nashville artist Travis Tritt will sing the National Anthem prior to the NCAA men's basketball National Championship game April 8 in Atlanta. The high profile appearance is a milestone for Tritt, a native Georgian who has performed at some of athletics' biggest moments.

Completing the sports equivalent of Hollywood's EGOT, Tritt's April performance adds to a resumé that includes two Super Bowl performances, a World Series game, the 1996 Atlanta Olympics, the opening of Atlanta's Georgia Dome and the final Braves game at Atlanta-Fulton County Stadium. May 3 he'll play the Barnstable Brown Gala at the Kentucky Derby, his 15th consecutive appearance at the benefit for diabetes research.

In addition to a full performance slate, Travis is readying a re-release of his 10th studio album The Storm featuring several new tracks. Among them is a duet with his 15-year-old daughter Tyler Reese on the Patty Smyth-Don Henley song "Sometimes Love Just Ain't Enough." A single and video will be released soon.

Travis is also among the country luminaries performing at George Jones' final Nashville concert Nov. 22 at the city's Bridgestone Arena.
