SALEM, Va. (WFXR) — Country music fans, rejoice! Travis Tritt, a platinum-selling and award-winning artist, is bringing his classic country sound back to the Salem Civic Center in March 2022, with a duo from Franklin County serving as his opening act.

According to Salem officials, Tritt’s performance is scheduled for 7:30 p.m. on Friday, March 18, 2022.

Tickets for the show will go on sale at 10 a.m. on Friday, Dec. 17 both online and through the Salem Civic Center Box Office, which is open from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday.

Pre-sale tickets will also be available online from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. on Thursday, Dec. 16. using the code SCCTT.

The Georgia native has won four CMA awards, two Grammys and sold over 30 million records in his illustrious career. Since 1989, Tritt has put 39 of the 40 singles he’s released on the country charts. Five of those hits, including “Help Me Hold On” and “Can I Trust You with My Heart” landed at number one, while 15 others charted in the top ten.

In addition, in June of 1996, Tritt’s “Country Club” and “T-R-O-U-B-L-E” albums each went double-platinum, marking two million in sales for each album. His new album “Set in Stone” was released May 7 and it is his first original full-length studio album in over a decade.

The often-outspoken country star continues to sell-out shows and stays authentic and relevant to his fans across the globe. He is an original member of the “The Class of ‘89” – which also includes Country music superstars Garth Brooks, Clint Black, and Alan Jackson, all of whom are destined for the Country Music Hall of Fame in the future.

According to organizers, Tritt not only played at the Salem Civic Center in 2015, but he also performed in front of more than 11,000 fans at the 2014 Blue Ridge Music Festival at Salem Stadium.

The Franklin County duo “Crawford & Power” — featuring Jacob Crawford and Ethan Power — has already opened several shows for Tritt and will reportedly serve as his opening act on March 18, 2022.

According to organizers, the last time Crawford & Power graced the Salem Civic Center stage was for a sold-out show with Cody Johnson in September. The homegrown duo also has performed with Willie Nelson, The Marshall Tucker Band, Luke Combs, and 38 Special.
