Billboard Magazine reports:
Country singer Travis Tritt is ready to take a hard stance against COVID-19 vaccine and testing mandates at concerts, and announced Monday (Oct. 18) he’s even going so far as to cancel four shows making those requirements.
Tritt says the negative comments he received after performing shows with COVID-19 safety protocols on the Brooks & Dunn Reboot Tour convinced him to do things differently for his solo dates.
The cancellations follow an August statement Tritt released that declared promoters or venues who require COVID-19 safety protocols are “discriminating” against concertgoers and said that he stood with those standing up against “the squelching of any specific freedoms and basic human rights around the world.”
Read the full article. Tritt has landed dozens of singles on the country chart, including five that reached #1. He has expressed the usual right wing political views and has condemned Black Lives Matter.
