Honoring One Of Country Music’s Most Loved Outlaws
Sometimes just sticking to your guns can get you branded an “outlaw.” That’s how Travis Tritt earned the title: by going against the “conventions” of the music industry to forge a sound and style all his own.
For Travis, being an outlaw means one thing – “doing my music my way.”
As a youngster in Marietta, Georgia, Travis Tritt grew up with a love for music. He began playing guitar at the age of eight and began writing songs at fourteen. Success did not come quickly, but Travis continued to play music while working various jobs. Eventually, Travis decided to concentrate full-time on his music. He quit his job and worked the honky tonk circuit, while recording demos for the studios. In 1989, Travis landed a recording contract, and in 1990, his debut album “Country Club” was released. It was very successful, producing four #1 singles, and Travis was on his way to the career of his dreams. In 1991, the Country Music Association presented him with the coveted Horizon Award.
In addition to his very successful recording career, Travis has expanded his talents to include films. Travis particularly enjoys the opportunity to perform in film and television episodes, and you have probably seen him in one or more of his roles. To date, he’s appeared in the Western film “Rio Diablo,” “The Cowboy Way,” the action-packed thriller “Fire Down Below” and “Outlaw Justice.” On television, he starred in “Tales From the Crypt,” “Arli$$” and the television dramas “Dr. Quinn, Medicine Woman,” “Diagnosis Murder,” and “Touched By An Angel.”
Even with his tremendous popularity and success, Travis maintains his down-to-earth qualities. He enjoys life and strives to always please his fans. With his ability to capture the emotions we experience and express them in ways that touch us on a very personal level, we can relate to his songs, and this partly explains his tremendous success.
The frame is color cased hardened for a dynamic effect, and the grips are hand carved from genuine stag. Along the barrel, frame, and cylinder, decorations in nickel and gold make this revolver as ornate as those special-ordered by some of the legendary figures of the Old West. From the double “T” on the frame to the dramatic banner on the barrel inscribed, “Entertainer, Singer, Songwriter,” each .45 is a masterpiece. The cylinder features electric guitars along with the titles of three of Travis’ biggest hits: “Anymore,” “Here’s a Quarter,” and “T-R-O-U-B-L-E.” The backstrap has the familiar logo of Travis’ Country Club.
Handsome Display Case
A display case accompanies each Tribute, luxuriously lined and contoured to fit the revolver. A brass plaque is included and bears the official inscription of this first-ever issue. The leather inlaid lid features the gold-embossed signature of Travis Tritt.
