Travis Tritt Is Given His Own Georgia Highway

Bookmark and Share
NASHVILLE, TENN (June 5, 2001) – When Country music superstar Travis Tritt sings "Down The Road I Go," the title track from his current CD, he could be referring to his very own road. Tritt's home state of Georgia is honoring him on June 12 by renaming a three mile section of Highway 92 "Travis Tritt Highway." In addition, Paulding County signs will read "Home of Country Music Star Travis Tritt". State Representative Glenn Richardson led the initiative to honor the Georgia native.

"We are very proud of Travis and his successful music career," said Richardson. "We value even more Travis' involvement in the community and wanted to recognize his efforts. Whenever he's asked to help he always jumps in. Travis has helped raise money for several local organizations."

Travis, a proud native Georgian, consistently lends his hand and his talents to help the state even donating proceeds from concerts to the local Red Cross chapters in Georgia after tornados ravaged many of his neighbors there.

"I love my home in Paulding County and I am truly honored that my community and its leaders have chosen to honor me in this way," says Tritt. "I always look forward to returning home from the road but now I get to see my name on the ‘Welcome to Paulding County' signs and have the bus drive down ‘Travis Tritt Highway.' That's cool."

The ceremony will be held June 12 in Hiram, GA (just outside of Atlanta). Various state, city and county officials will be in attendance including Richardson and Senator Nathan Dean. The section of highway to be renamed is near Travis' home from the 120 connector to Ridge Road.
