Country music star Travis Tritt slammed left-wing critics who attacked the Atlanta Braves for permitting him to sing the National Anthem.
Before game 6 in the playoffs at the MLB’s National League Championship Series, Tritt proudly sang the National Anthem.
Tritt wrote to Twitter, “So the wing nut cancel culture tried to pressure the Atlanta Braves into forcing me not to sing the National Anthem at Game 6 of the NLCS.”
“I’m so thankful that the Braves did not cave to this pressure and refused to be bullied,” he continued.
“Thanks for allowing me to pay tribute to America,” Tritt added.

In addition, Tritt recently dropped the hammer on venues with overly restrictive COVID-related policies. The multi-platinum selling artist announced that he’s canceling a number of shows.
He refuses to comply with venues that are forcing fans to either show proof of COVID vaccination, submit a negative COVID test, or mandate masks. “I’m putting my money where my mouth is,” Tritt explained.
“Any venue or promoter mandating masks, requiring vaccinations, or pushing COVID testing protocols on my fans will not be tolerated,” Tritt continued.
“Any show I have booked that discriminates against concert-goers by requiring proof of vaccination, a COVID test, or a mask is being canceled immediately,” he said.
This will result in canceled shows in Muncie, Indiana; Philadelphia, Mississippi; Peoria, Illinois; and Louisville, Kentucky. “Many people are taking a firm stand against these mandates around the country, and I wholeheartedly support that cause,” Tritt said.
“I have been extremely vocal against mandates since the beginning. This is a sacrifice that I’m willing to make to stand up for the freedoms that generations of Americans have enjoyed for their entire lifetimes,” he said.
“There are plenty of promoters and venues around the country that appreciate fans and the freedom of choice in this great country, and those are the promoters and venues that I will be supporting.”
Tritt apologized for causing any inconvenience, adding that he “will try to reschedule unrestricted shows in these areas as soon as we can.”

Other performers have similarly canceled shows over a requirement for proof of COVID vaccination — though it seems Tritt is one of the first performers to publicly put his foot down over even mask requirements for fans…
Last month, for example, “Saturday Night Live” alum Jim Breuer slammed vaccine “segregation” as he announced the cancelation of numerous shows at venues requiring proof of the jab.
“Two quick updates on shows that you may think you may be getting tickets to or you already have tickets to: The Wellmont Theater in New Jersey — not doing it,” Breuer said during a 22-minute Facebook Live video. “Also the Royal Oak Theater in Michigan, due to the segregation of them forcing people to show up with vaccinations … I am also not doing those shows.”
“I know I’m going to sacrifice a lot of money, but I’m not going to be enslaved to the system or money,” the 54-year-old added.
