Travis Tritt, Charlie Daniels and the Outlaws Come To
Myrtle Beach Speedway Amphitheater
The Concert will be May 15th 2015 right in the heart of the upcoming Spring Bike Rally.
Myrtle Beach SC, November 3, 2014: Coming May 15th 2015 to Myrtle Beach Speedway Amphitheater will be Travis Tritt, Charlie Daniels Band and The Outlaws. This concert will be held during the upcoming spring bike rally here in the Myrtle Beach area. On the heels of a successful start to the new concert venue owner Robert Lutz has decided to take it to the next level.
Travis Tritt started singing as a child, performing in a children’s choir at his church. He got his first guitar when he was eight years old and taught himself how to play this instrument. As a teenager, Tritt started writing songs. He aspired to be like one of country music’s outlaws, such as Waylon Jennings, Willie Nelson and Hank Williams Jr. Travis Tritt released his first album, Country Club, in 1990. The title track became his first hit, breaking into the country Top 10. Some industry experts didn’t know what to make of his rock-influenced sound, but listeners definitely liked what they heard. Tritt had two more successful singles off the album—”Help Me Hold On” and “I’m Going to Be Somebody.” His career received another boost with he signed Ken Kragen up to his manager. With such clients as Kenny Rogers and Trisha Yearwood, Kragen was well-connected in the Nashville scene. Myrtle Beach Speedway is proud to be associated with such a great artist in Travis Tritt.
With the next artist it is hard to decide who would be the headliner as he has accomplished so much throughout his career. Charlie Daniels best known for his legendary hit “Devil Went down To Georgia”, will be bringing his high energy show to the Myrtle Beach Speedway Amphitheater. He will be” wowing” the crowd with his incredible talents with the fiddle. Over the course of his career, Charlie has received numerous accolades, including induction into the Grand Ole Opry and Musicians Hall of Fame. He’s been presented the Pioneer Award by the Academy of Country Music and was honored as a BMI Icon in recognition of his songwriting. He’s received a star on the Music City Walk of Fame. “I am so excited for the 2015 concert season in Myrtle Beach, this show is the first of many that will be announce and each one will be at this magnitude”, said Robert Lutz.
With great artist like Travis Tritt and Charlie Daniels you could only have an equally successful band as the opening act. That is why Robert has brought in the critically acclaimed group “The Outlaws”. Formed in Tampa in 1972, The Outlaws – known for their triple-guitar rock attack and three-part country harmonies – became one of the first acts signed by Clive Davis (at the urging of Ronnie Van Zant) to his then-fledgling Arista Records. The band’s first three albums The Outlaws, Lady In Waiting and Hurry Sundown – featuring such rock radio favorites as “There Goes Another Love Song”, “Green Grass & High Tides”, “Knoxville Girl” and “Freeborn Man” – would become worldwide gold and platinum landmarks of the Southern Rock era. Known as ‘The Florida Guitar Army’ by their fans, The Outlaws earned a formidable reputation as an incendiary live act touring with friends The Allman Brothers, Lynyrd Skynyrd, The Marshall Tucker Band and The Charlie Daniels Band as well as The Doobie Brothers, The Who, Eagles and The Rolling Stones.
