We were just involved in a fatal accident with a driver going the wrong way on Veteran’s Highway as we were leaving Myrtle Beach. Thank God we are all okay. I feel so bad for those who died needlessly tonight. I’m really shaken up by what I witnessed. God bless those who died. pic.twitter.com/zcfRK7XxFc— Travis Tritt (@Travistritt) May 18, 2019
“I beg everyone to please, please, please drive sober,” Tritt tweeted. “Know when to admit that your are too impaired to drive.”
Tritt and The Cadillac Three are scheduled to perform tonight at Anderson Music Hall in Hiawassee.
Tritt tweeted Saturday that the show "must and will go on."
Lots of folks have been asking if our shows will still play tonight and tomorrow nite in spite of the accident we were involved early this morning. The answer is “yes.” The show must and will go on. Very grateful to all who have expressed concern.— Travis Tritt (@Travistritt) May 18, 2019
