Travis Denning recently turned heads with the release of a fiery cover of Miranda Lambert’s “Kerosene” and now he’s paying homage to even more female country artists during his live show with a medley of songs by some of country music’s leading ladies.
While on tour with Riley Green, the Georgia native has been performing a medley of Shania Twain’s “Any Man Of Mine,” Taylor Swift’s “Picture To Burn,” Reba McEntire’s “Fancy” and Lambert’s “Kerosene.”
A fan captured footage of the medley from Denning’s recent show in Athens, Georgia and it’s clear fans are loving his tribute to the women of country music as they can be heard belting out the lyrics from the crowd.
“I feel like y’all probably haven’t heard a guy sing Shania Twain before,” Denning says in the clip. “We’re gonna make this sh** happen right now, okay. So if it’s okay with the ladies out there, we’re gonna sing some girl songs…”
Watch his performance in the clip below.
Travis Denning’s latest single, “After A Few,” is gaining major traction at country radio. This week, the song made its way into the Top 30 and it’s showing no sign of slowing down anytime soon.
“‘After a Few’ was one of those songs that I wrote before I had a record deal. When you’re writing songs and making rent and beer money on writing songs, you want to pitch a song like this to Luke Bryan or Blake Shelton or whoever,” Denning previously shared with Country Now. “That was one of those songs where I wrote it and wanted to pitch it, but I was on the cusp of getting a record deal and I loved ‘After a Few’ so much that we eventually made the decision to hold on to it. That was one of the first songs that we did that with.”
Fans can catch Denning on tour with country hitmaker Dustin Lynch in 2020.
