Tritt, CMT Make Wish Come True

Billy Bob Thornton isn’t the only one making a guest appearance in Travis Tritt’s upcoming video, “Modern Day Bonnie and Clyde.” Tritt also has cast Melanie Wright as an extra. “Her high spirits and enthusiasm are inspiring,” he says of the 18-year-old former dancer currently suffering from ovarian cancer. Wright’s appearance in the clip comes as the result of cooperation between CMT, the Make-A-Wish Foundation, the Pollack Music Group, Sony Music Nashville and Tritt himself. “It was truly my pleasure to make this dream come true for her,” Tritt says. “She and her family stayed most of the day, and we loved having them.” Shooting was to take place Tuesday and Thursday (Dec. 11 and 13) on the edge of the Mojave Desert in California. 12/12/01
