Here’s a Quarter, We Care: Travis Tritt Set to Release Double-Disc Live Album on Nov. 18

Double-Grammy winner Travis Tritt is slated to release a new double-disc live album and DVD, A Man and His Guitar: Live From the Franklin Theatre, on Nov. 18. The new 24-song offering was recorded and shot at the historic Franklin Theatre in Franklin, Tenn., in 2013 and features Travis performing an unplugged concert that gives fans the opportunity to hear fresh takes on No. 1 hits “Help Me Hold One,” “Best of Intentions” and “Anymore,” as well as crowd-pleasers like “Here’s a Quarter” and “T-R-O-U-B-L-E.”

In addition to performing a number of cover songs, including Johnny Cash’s “I Walk the Line” and Waylon Jennings’ “Are You Sure Hank Done It This Way,” Travis is joined onstage by both Marty Stuart and James Otto for performances of “Whiskey Ain’t Working” and “Lord Have Mercy on the Working Man,” respectively.

A Man and His Guitar: Live From the Franklin Theatre will be available for purchase through major digital retailers, Travis’ website and at various stops throughout his tour. The DVD will only be available on Travis’ website and tour.

Miranda Lambert is Settling Down and Setting Up Shop

Miranda Lambert is Settling Down and Setting Up Shop

If you’ve been to lower Broadway in Nashville over the last several years, you know country music artist owned honkytonks having been sprouting up all along Music City’s famous strip.

Jason Aldean, John Rich, Blake Shelton, Dierks Bentley, Luke Bryan, Florida Georgia Line and Alan Jackson all already have venues…but now there’s another name being thrown in the mix, and it’s a first!

Miranda Lambert will be the first female country artist to have a downtown venue. Miranda’s place will be located at 308 Broadway, and looks to be named “Miranda Lambert’s Casa Rosa.”

Miranda was perhaps encouraged to move into this new venture by a 2018 Nashville Business Journal poll. When music industry pros were asked, “Which female country star should open a downtown bar?” — Miranda garnered the most votes.

Miranda is partnering with TC Restaurant Group on the new place, and it looks like even more details will be revealed in the coming weeks.
