Travis Tritt & Charlie Daniels Take Over The HEB Center In Cedar Park
Country music superstar Travis Tritt brought his “Outlaws & Renegades” concert tour to the HEB Center in Cedar Park, Tx on June 9th, 2019. Joining him on the trek was long-time country legend Charlie Daniels who took a Tritt under his wing when he first broke into the business. It was the classic combination of legends to sell out the HEB Center on the outskirts of the Austin capital area. With more than 60 years of music combined, the show pulled every era of fans alike, young and old. There was something special in the air this night, making it remarkable.
In support of this amazing tour lineup, was the addition of The Cadillac Three. The three-man setup had a more modern vibe, appealing to today’s generation of country fans. The guys had a good mix of a country western vibe mixed with a good twist of blues. They reminded me a lot of Lukas Nelson and the Promise of the Real combined with a Billy Gibbons sound. I thoroughly enjoyed their set and the stage presence they brought to the show was on point.
The Devil Went Down To Austin?
Next up on the agenda was the iconic Charlie Daniels Band. There weren’t any elaborate light shows, haze or onstage theatrics, and that was OK. For a legendary band like this, there’s absolutely isn’t any need for them. As Charlie switched between his legendary fiddle playing to ripping riffs on his six-string, the magic was in the air. At one point Charlie even gave away his fiddle bow to an adoring lady in the front row. The band went through a series of instrumentals solos and even graced the crowd with some gospel hymns.
Finally, pretty easy to imagine what the band closed with. Of course, the classic they are known for – “The Devil Went Down to Georgia.” The devil still falls out to Johnny in this one but put it down as a big victory, or even a country music fan’s bucket-list check off, to get to see that one performed live.
Time For The Country Club Founder
Up next was the one and only Travis Tritt to take the stage. Travis cames out with such vibrant energy, getting the crowd pumped right off the bat. This whole set was filled with all the number one classics such as “I’m Going To Be Somebody,” “Here’s A Quarter,” The Eagles cover of “Take It Easy,” and so many more. At one point, Tritt proceeded to tell the story about his time at the veterans hospital while filming the music video for “Anymore.” This was nothing short of an emotional buildup and a remarkable performance of the track.
The Outlaws & Renegades tour was a stacked evening and full of memories and performances that will stick out for years to come. If you have the opportunity to go see it you most definitely have to!
