Country music star Travis Tritt is thanking the Atlanta Braves for defying the left by allowing him to perform the national anthem during game six of Game 6 of the NL Championship Series. Tritt recently announced that he will not be performing at any venues that have COVID-19-related mandates.

You can hear him singing the end of national anthem in this tweet:

Tritt Thanks Braves

Tritt, 58, is originally from Marietta, GA, not far from the Braves stadium. He wore a Braves jersey and sang the anthem from the Truist Club seating area behind the backstop.

“So the wing nut cancel culture tried to pressure the Atlanta Braves into forcing me not to sing the National Anthem at Game 6 of the NLCS,” he tweeted. “I’m so thankful that the Braves did not cave to this pressure and refused to be bullied. Thanks for allowing me to pay tribute to America.”

Tritt also called out the media for their false portrayal of the reaction to his performance. 

“Exposing more media lies,” he tweeted alongside a video of him being cheered on by the crowd. “Sure sounds like more than a ‘smattering of applause’ when I was introduced Saturday night. No booing either.”

Liberals Slam Tritt

Liberals slammed the Braves for allowing Tritt to perform after he bashed vaccine mandates.

“Absolutely unacceptable for the Braves to endorse this conspiracy-nut anti-health abuser of social media Travis Tritt sing at a League Championship Series game,” said leftwing media personality Keith Olbermann. “This isn’t free speech: this is an idiot who is personally helping to send Americans to the hospital.”

This came after Tritt revealed that he will no longer be performing at any venues with COVID-19 restrictions. Tritt told Billboard that he’s “not against the vaccine” but is “against forcing people to take medicine that they may not need and may not want.”

“I’m putting my money where my mouth is and announcing that any venue or promoter mandating masks, requiring vaccinations, or pushing COVID testing protocols on my fans will not be tolerated,” he said in a statement. “Any show I have booked that discriminates against concert-goers by requiring proof of vaccination, a COVID test, or a mask is being canceled immediately.”

Tritt Doubles Down – Stands By His Stance 

“We have done about 75 shows so far this year, all over the country, and in spite of the fact that some people would try to label these as being ‘super-spreaders,’ the actual numbers don’t reflect that at all,” he later added to Fox News.

“As a matter of fact, quite the opposite,” Tritt continued. “In most of these areas, we have seen the COVID numbers actually drop dramatically over the last few weeks and months, and so it came as quite a shock to me and a lot of my fans when during the first week of October, a lot of these shows had restrictions placed on them, not by the state, not by the local city government, not by the local health department and municipalities, but by the actual promoters and venue owners.”

We would like to also thank the Braves for defying the left by allowing Tritt to perform!
