Country Music Feud: Brantley Gilbert vs Travis Tritt
Could this turn into the next country music feud? This past Saturday Night, Travis Tritt opened up a show for Brantley Gilbert in Salem, VA. However, he complained on his twitter page that his stage set up was a mess! He called Brantley Gilbert "Disrespectful"
Even though @BrantleyGilbert only gave us 8 feet of stage, we had a great time performing for everyone @BlueRidgeFest tonight. Great crowd! My word of advice to all up and coming performers: Don’t kick anymore asses on your way up than you are willing to kiss on your way down! I’ve always treated my heroes and peers with respect. I’ve respected everyone from George Jones, Waylon and Charlie Daniels who opened.
Tritt followed later with:
I doubt very seriously if @Brantley Gilbert knows how disrespectful his stage setup is to those who open for him. However, I’m just saying. Regardless of circumstances, I love performing for an appreciative audience. The folks make the show for me. Nobody appreciates y’all more! Make no mistake, @BrantleyGilbert is a fellow Georgia boy. He deserves whatever place he has carved for himself in the biz …. All I’m saying is that his handlers/management should be a little more aware of how he comes off to those he works with. No disrespect. Everyone in this biz knows we can’t please everyone, in spite of our best intentions. However, non of us can fix what we don’t know is wrong.
Sounds to me like Travis Tritt is not a big fan of Brantley. So far, no response from Brantley Gilbert or his management.
