The bulk of Tritt’s catalog is devoted to love ballads, most of which are led by Tritt’s own acoustic guitar melodies and sparse additional production. This is a special evening with a CMA and Grammy award-winning country artist in an intimate setting, where the spotlight is on his powerful, R&B-inflected voice and his guitar. $54 PREMIUM | $47 ADULT | $45 SENIOR $37 YOUTH | $10 CHICO STATE STUDENT
