Travis Tritt performing “Great Day to Be Alive”
In the early ‘90s, country fans would have had no problem picking Travis Tritt out of a lineup or finding him in _Where's Waldo: Country Edition_. He didn’t wear a hat, unlike Garth Brooks, Clint Black, or Alan Jackson, and he looked more like a long-lost Allman Brother than a member of the Grand Ole Opry. But when his first single, “Country Club,” hit radio waves in 1989, everybody knew where he was coming from—the chorus exclaimed, “I’m a member of a country club / country music is what I love.” Now, with more than 40 hits on Billboard's Hot Country Charts, five number-one singles, and two Grammy Awards—one for 1992’s “The Whiskey Ain’t Workin’” and another for 1998's “Same Old Train”—Travis keeps the ghosts of Hank Williams and George Jones grinning, even while expanding his sound. Sometimes that means he gets a little funky. On his acclaimed 2007 album, The Storm, Travis collaborated with Randy Jackson, finding ways to weave country with R&B that inspired Randy to say, “Dude, I knew you could sing, but I had no idea you could do that blue-eyed soul thing!” according to Tritt's [website](http://www.travistritt.com/bio). On tour in support of his upcoming sequel to the storm, The Calm After…, Travis pulls out the stops in a set of classic hits such as “Put Some Drive in Your Country” and “Where Corn Don’t Grow,” alongside new sultry and southern-fried nuggets.
Count Basie Theatre
Upon entering the Count Basie Theatre, guests may feel as though they’ve slipped through a crack in time and ended up in the early 1900s. Opulent marble staircases and gold details grab the eyes of visitors, recalling the decadence of Hollywood’s history and gently pulling them to the auditorium. There, the acoustically pleasing construction wins out as sound spreads and funnels through a sunburst dome embellished with a dangling chandelier. Since opening in 1926, the Count Basie has earned numerous accolades, including a nod from Pollstar magazine, which listed it as one of the Top 100 Worldwide Theatre Venues.
