Country star Travis Tritt will be lending his distinct voice to a new project this year, acting as narrator on a new Walt Disney biopic. The film, titled As Dreamers Do, is set to be released independently this spring.
“When I first read through the script in my head, it was in the voice of Travis Tritt,” said director Logan Sekulow. “I grew up listening to him and I’m a big fan. This role needed someone who could be warm and that the audience could trust. I was thrilled when I heard that he wanted to do it. As a director, it is great to see the vision you have play out on film exactly how it did in your head.”
In addition to narrating, Tritt has written a song for the movie, entitled “That’s What Dreamers Do.” View the trailer for As Dreamers Do, which includes a clip of Tritt’s narration, on www.WaltMovie.com.
The lineup for George Jones‘ Tribute Concert at Nashville’s Bridgestone Arena just got even bigger. In addition to an already packed lineup, it was announced today that George Strait, Blake Shelton, Miranda Lambert, Eric Church, Reba McEntire and Alabama will also be performing at the November 22nd show.
“I am thrilled and honored that so many of George’s friends are coming to what would have been his last concert, but is not a fitting tribute,” says Nancy Jones. “George loved these artists and before passing had actually wrote letters to almost all of them.”
The new list of performers will join an already star-studded lineup that includes Alan Jackson, Dierks Bentley, Travis Tritt, Tanya Tucker, Josh Turner, The Oak Ridge Boys, Charlie Daniels, Jamey Johnson, Montgomery Gentry, Sam Moore, and others. All previously announced artists are currently being reconfirmed.

There’s just something about Lucas Hoge that makes him instantly likable. Maybe it’s his small-town roots (He’s from tiny Hubbell, Nebraska with a population of around 50). Or maybe it’s his farm-bred work ethic. Or maybe it’s how you can sense those things in both the man and his music.
He’s currently promoting his single, “Give A Damn,” and is putting the finishing touches on his self-titled album, which is due out near the end of March. You may already have heard some of his music — not necessarily on the radio but on TV. His “If I Only Could,” was featured on an episode of Smallville on the WB. Plus, he has written and performed the theme songs for two shows: The already mentioned “Give A Damn,” which is the theme song for Tom’s Wild Life on GAC and the title theme song for Last Chance Highway on Animal Planet. If that’s not enough, he also wrote and performed a jingle for Lipton Tea.
The interview is the first time that I had spoken with Lucas. Yes, he’s out to promote his music, but clearly there’s so much more to him than that. It may have only been one conversation, but from it I could tell that he is truly compassionate and caring about people, pets, and, naturally, making music. You’ll probably get the same sense about him after reading it.
