Travis Tritt, Marty Stuart + Chris Cagle Rocked East Texas This Past Weekend [VIDEO]
This past Saturday, KNUE welcomed Travis Tritt, Marty Stuart and Chris Cagle in concert at The Oil Palace. For those of you who attended the show, I don't have to tell you how great it was. The show was full of memories for me. I have always been a huge fan of Marty Stuart, and Travis, and now I'm a huge fan of Chris Cagle and Corb Lund, who blew the crowd away!
Corb Lund had a little "Western Swing" thing going on, with steel guitar, upright Bass and all. He really got the crowd pumped for more.

Chris Cagle sang his hits, including his number #1 hit, "I Breathe In, I Breathe Out". Chris has been in the studio cutting another album and he sang a few songs from the LP. Get ready, the record has a lot of southern rock elements. Chris was also very humble and appreciative of his fans. He was proud that his mother and wife were at the show, and it showed in his performance.

Next was legend Marty Stuart and his phenomenal band -- Fabulous Superlatives! I mean it, these guys are true musicians with more talent in their little pinkies than a lot of the artists out there today. Marty was in rare form and gave us a show that nobody could forget. When I interviewed him a few weeks ago, I asked if he was going to bring along his mandolin, and he let me down. He did a solo on that thing that brought the house down. The best part about Marty was when he was backstage and how humble and kind he was to everyone.

In 1989, I went from being a Top 40 jock to country and never looked back. That year was when Travis Tritt released his first album, "Country Club," which was followed by several platinum albums and chart-topping singles throughout the '90s. Back then Nashville was a little "put off" with his southern rock sound, but he continued to succeed with hits such as "Anymore," "Help Me Hold On," Can I Trust You With My Heart” and "Here's a Quarter."

But the most awesome part of the entire night was when Marty Stuart and his band sang a tribute to legend Ray Price. The song was penned by another legend, Bill Monroe. There was not a dry eye in the building.

May God hold you tight Ray Price! Our thoughts are prayers are with Ray and his sweet family.
