    10 Feet Tall And Bulletproof
    by Travis Tritt and Michael Bane

    Travis Tritt. He's the king of Nashvill's new generation of outlaws. The youngest member ever inducted into the Grand Ole Opry. And one of country music's hottest new superstars.

    Now you can meet the real Travis Tritt, in the very words born of the same mind and soul that gave the world the packed-dirt honesty, no-chaser humor, and full-span lyricism of megahits like "Here's A Quarter (Call Someone Who Cares)," "I'm Gonna Be Somebody," "T.R.O.U.B.L.E.," "The Whiskey Ain't Workin'," and "Put Some Drive In Your Country." Here is Travis Tritt telling you about his decidedly unglamorous years during which he went through two failed marriages, kept a job loading trucks, and began an unrewarding career in inside sales. Here is Tritt struggling to find his true vocation, fighting his way out of the narrow little box of prejudice that comes with the territory using the best weapon he has...his music.

    You'll witness Travis Tritt pay richtteous dues to the godfathers of his distinctive brand of country and rock, crystal - clear bluegrass, and down-and-dirty blues - men like Waylon Jennings, Willie Nelson, and Hank Williams, both senior and junior. You'll be with him on his encounters - mostly friendly, sometimes feuding - with contemporary stars like Merle Haggard, Dolly Parton, Charlie Daniels, and Billy Ray Cyrus.

    Finally, you'll hear Travis Tritt on concerts and the road ("Your microphone stand serve two functions- making music and de facto weapons"), on his public and his women ("All of a sudden, women are throwing themselves at me"), and on the unending love-hate relationship with the country music circuit and the self-appointed keepers of the flame in Nashville ("I pretty much had a reputation for being...the type of sleazeball who would actually type yp his own contract"). This is Travis Tritt, the stink of bars with chicken wire stages still on his dusty boots, the superstar singing of the loss and suffering and love that only a one-hundred-proof, New South good ole boy can know up close.

    Printed in 1994, this hard cover book is sold used, with original dust cover, in great condition.
