trayertrash Posted November 7, 2016 Share Posted November 7, 2016 Travis Tritt, a washed up and forgotten country singer known of his songs... hmm... come to think of it he's not really known for anything remotely relevant, has anyone even spoken his name since the 80s??... took to twitter to share his disapproval of Beyonce performing her country inspired song Daddy Lessons with the legendary country band Dixie Chicks at the Country Music Association Awards. Though several tweets have been removed, the general message still remains. In past few years years, hard rock legend Steven Tyler, pop artists Kelly Clarkson, pop/r&b artist Justin Timberlake and soulful pop rocker Jason Mraz have performed at the CMAs... as well as the iconic 1998 rock-rapper Kid Rock and several alternate-pop-country artists who do no fit into the traditional sound of country music... (most notably Taylor Swift and Shania Twain - who are often deemed 'not country enough' by traditional country fans) Travis Tritt was able to able accept hard rock, pop, r&b, rock and rap artists in the past, so what's makes Beyonce different from the rest of them? Why joke about Single Ladies not being traditional country music while not calling out Behind These Hazel Eyes, Dude Looks Like A Lady, Bawitdaba or Cry Me A River for not being tradition country songs? Where was this need to protect country music when those artists performed? Why does he feel so threatened by the presence of a strong black woman at an award show dominated by Trump supporting country fans with a history of unacceptance towards people of color? I reached out to Travis Tritt on Twitter and Facebook, but he failed to respond. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
