Travis Tritt offered his longtime friends Blake Shelton and Gwen Stefani marriage advice and teased if he will be performing at the superstars upcoming wedding.
In an exclusive interview with Music Mayhem, we asked Tritt if he had any marriage advice for soon-to-be newlyweds Shelton and Stefani, as he has been married for over 20 years to his beautiful wife Theresa.
The “Smoke In A Bar” singer shared that while in fact he was lucky to have met his current wife Theresa as he was married twice before and “those marriages didn’t last very long,” but he admits it gave him an “opportunity to find out what [he] wanted out of a marriage and what [he] wanted out of a relationship.”
Tritt shared that he thinks the “fact that both Blake and Gwen have had similar experiences,” both being married before, he admitted that he think “they’ll probably benefit from those relationships by taking what they’ve learned and applying it to this new relationship.”
“And as long as the love is there, man, as long as you feel like you’ve found somebody that you really want to share the rest of your life with, that’s the key. And knowing what that looks like and knowing what that is, I think that’s over half of the battle right there,” Tritt told Music Mayhem. “So I wish them nothing but the best of luck in the future. I’ve been around them enough to know that it seems to me that they really just love the heck out of each other. And that’s the biggest key to having a successful relationship is really having that love and that mutual respect for the other and once you can have that, the rest of it comes pretty easy.”
When being asked if he will be invited or maybe even sing at the couple’s wedding, Tritt said “man, I have no idea. That would be completely up to them. I know that Blake has been probably one of my biggest fans over the years, so who knows? I mean, who knows, but regardless of whether I’m invited to be a part of it or not, I wish them the very, very best and many, many years of happiness.”
Additionally, Tritt is gearing up to release his brand new album, Set In Stone, in May 2021 via Big Noise Music Group, marking his first new music in over a decade. The 11-track project (8 of which were co-written by Tritt) was produced by Dave Cobb (Chris Stapleton) and will be his first new album since his 2007 record, The Storm, and will include his latest single “Smoke In A Bar.” Tritt explained the album as “getting back to a no-frills classic outlaw-country sound.”
