After slamming COVID-19 rules, Tritt to sing anthem at NLCS

ATLANTA, - Travis Tritt was scheduled to perform the national anthem on Saturday before Game 6 in the NL Championship Series.

Tritt announced the announcement on his Twitter account.

He wrote, adding an American flag to the post.

Tritt, a 58-year old native of suburban Marietta is not far from the Braves stadium. He was a vocal supporter for Atlanta's sporting teams and even wrote , a forgettable 2004 tribute to Atlanta's NFL team, "Falcons Fever."

Tritt, along with other well-known entertainers Eric Clapton, Van Morrison, announced this week that he would cancel shows in Indiana and Mississippi over COVID-19 mandates.

Tritt stated to Billboard he isn't against vaccines but opposes forcing people into taking medicine they don't need or want.

He released a statement in August claiming that COVID-19 safety protocols discriminated against concertgoers. He also stated that he supported those who oppose "the suppression of specific freedoms or basic human rights around world."

Truist Park, the Braves' 41,000-seat stadium has been open to full capacity for most of the season. There are no restrictions on vaccinations, negative testing, or mask-wearing by fans.

Tritt, a two-time Grammy nominee, has five songs reach No. #1 on the country music charts, with the most recent being "Best of Intentions", in 2000.
