Travis Tritt Thanks Atlanta Braves For Not “Caving To Wing Nut Cancel Culture” After National Anthem Performance

Travis Tritt Atlanta braves country music

THE ATLANTA BRAVES ARE GOING TO THE WORLD SERIES.

As a die-hard Braves fan, I can genuinely say I’m ecstatic to see the Braves back in the World Series.

Since the Braves’ last World Series appearance in 1999, I’ve been through years of shitty seasons, several post-season heartbreaks to the San Francisco Giants and Los Angeles Dodgers, and witnessed the franchise trade away every single good player we had in 2014.

Needless to say, the future wasn’t looking too bright six years ago.

However, they’ve finally caught lightning in the bottle, defeating the Dodgers in Game Six last night 4-2, and they’ll be facing the Houston Astros in the Series.

However, prior to the game, there was a bit of controversy surrounding who the Atlanta Braves chose to perform the National Anthem.

Georgia native and ’90s country legend… Travis Tritt

In light of the recent headlines Travis Tritt has made regarding his decision to cancel shows at any venue requiring a Covid vaccine or negative test, some folks weren’t exactly pleased with the move.

But despite the pressure to find somebody else, the Atlanta Braves opted to stick with Tritt as the Game 6 performer.

He took to Twitter to thank the Braves organization for not “caving to the pressure” and allowing him to perform:

So the wing nut cancel culture tried to pressure the Atlanta Braves into forcing me not to sing the National Anthem at Game 6 of the NLCS.

I’m so thankful that the Braves did not cave to this pressure and refused to be bullied. Thanks for allowing me to pay tribute to America.”

And after the All-Star game debacle in Atlanta earlier in the season, Tritt was more than fired up to have the World Series in Atlanta.

“Atlanta lost the MLB All Star Game because of left wing morons.

More than fitting that half of the World Series games will be played in Atlanta. Karma is a cruel bitch!”

Tritt is a Georgia native, growing up just outside of Atlanta in Marietta, so you already know he’s been an avid Braves fan his whole life.

You can watch the performance below.

Go Braves!
