Travis Denning returned to his home state this past weekend and performed for a sold out crowd at The Warehouse, a live music joint in Athens, Georgia.
Riding the momentum from his new music video “ABBY,” the event marked the rising stars’ first sold-out show in Athens. It was the 6th sold-out show in as many weeks for The Warehouse, signifying a strong return for live shows in the music-rich Peach State.
The Bass Pro Shops hat often seen atop Denning’s head isn’t just a prop though. Few folks in the music industry are handier with a fishing pole.
Prior to the weekend’s musical festivities, Denning hit the water on Lake Sinclair with a few fellow Georgia Bulldogs. From the looks of it, it was a bad day to be a catfish (and probably a beer).
One of Denning’s notable fishing buddies for the weekend was Ben Cleveland, an All-American offensive lineman who is expected to hear his name called in the first few rounds of the NFL draft at the end of the month.
Earlier this year Cleveland used his platform at the NFL combine to raise money for a worthy cause, pledging donations to the Outdoor Dream Foundation for each of the 30 reps he pumped out on the 225 lb. bench press. The goal of the ODF is to give sick and terminally ill children the opportunities to go on some of their dream hunting and fishing trips.
I would assume a 6’6 335 lb man can eat a lot of catfish, so the big dawg is fortunate to have friends like Denning to help him stack some fresh fish on ice before sending them off to the deep fryer.
