Tritt Assists in Hurricane Relief Efforts

Travis Tritt is using his Friday (Oct. 1) concert in Mobile, Ala., to promote disaster assistant efforts in nearby Gulf Shores. The Gulf Coast tourist destination was hit hard when Hurricane Ivan recently pummeled homes and businesses. Tritt will be working with the Salvation Army, the American Red Cross and Mobile radio station WKSJ in urging fans to donate non-perishable items during his show at Mobile Bayfest. “The first song I ever wrote, ’Spend a Little Time,’ was written in Gulf Shores,” Tritt says. “Like the rest of the country, I followed the news about the hurricane and saw the pictures of devastation coming out of Gulf Shores. It struck a chord with me because that place is dear to my heart. I felt I had to do something.”
