Tritt will sing NLCS anthem after blaming COVID-19 regulations

Tritt announced the news via his Twitter account.

He wrote, adding an American flag to the post.

Tritt, a 58-year old native of suburban Marietta is not far from the Braves stadium. He is a strong supporter of Atlanta's sporting teams and even wrote a forgettable 2004 tribute to the NFL team, "Falcons Fever".

Tritt, along with other well-known entertainers Eric Clapton, Van Morrison, announced this week that he would cancel shows in Indiana and Mississippi over COVID-19 mandates.

Tritt stated to Billboard that he is not against vaccines but that he was against forcing people into taking medicine they don't need or want.

He released a statement in August claiming that COVID-19 safety protocols discriminated against concertgoers. He also stated that he supported those who oppose "the suppression of specific freedoms or basic human rights around world."

Truist Park, the Braves' 41,000-seat stadium has been open to full capacity for most of the season. There are no restrictions on vaccinations, negative testing, or mask-wearing by fans.

Tritt, a two-time Grammy nominee, has five songs reach No. #1 on the country music charts, with the most recent being "Best of Intentions", in 2000.
