Travis Tritt with Lindsey Highlander
Travis Tritt developed a gutsy, outlaw image that distinguishes him from the pack of male country singers. Throughout the early '90s, he had a string of platinum albums and Top Ten singles, including three number one hits.
Tritt comes to the Clayton Center as part of his acoustic tour and gives audiences an intimate experience playing his songs, and telling stories in a rare and intimate concert.
"Growing up just outside Atlanta, to the north of us you've got the Grand Ol' Opry in Nashville," Tritt explains. "A little bit South you've got Macon, Georgia - home of the Allman Brothers, the Marshall Tucker Band and Capricorn Records. And off to west you've got Delta blues. Sprinkle Southern gospel over the top of that, and you're talking about where I came from. I loved all of that music."
Lindsey Highlander - Lyndsey Highlander has a style all her own, powered by massive vocal chops, soothing falsettos, and intimate story telling. As a live performer, Lyndsey has been known to mingle with the audience, firing up the crowd and melting their hearts with verses as impressive as her colossal bridges. Lyndsey comments, "Performing is indescribable, it's God's natural high... I love the music, I love the fans, I love absolutely everything about it!"
It didn't take long to realize she had some real talent. Lyndsey credits her sound to a passion for soulful sounds such as Bonnie Raitt, Pat Benetar and Aretha Franklin. However, if you ask Lyndsey who became the biggest inspiration to her music, without even a pause she will tell you how much Patsy Cline has influenced her spirit and her sound. With a supportive family in tow, Lyndsey went to chase out her dream in Nashville 7 years ago. After lots of hard work she finally has her biggest career move after being discovered by Jeff Howard an agent at APA. Together Jeff and Lyndsey work tirelessly to pursue Lyndsey's career. Lyndsey's massive sound and intimate story telling is coupled with her energetic stage presence and constant desire to engage the crowd. With the new team behind her, only great things are on her future. Lyndsey is working on recording her first EP, writing daily and tours the country regularly stealing hearts every where she goes.
