Being one of the biggest televised events in the world, the Super Bowl halftime show is a major draw on a yearly basis. For the past 25 years, major artists from all genres have been invited to perform. From Michael Jackson, to Prince and Shania Twain to the Rolling Stones have all put on fantastic showcases of their music.
Though country music seems to very seldom be included, fans were treated to a truly incredible halftime show in 1994. Clint Black, Tanya Tucker, Travis Tritt, Wynonna & Naomi Judd, along with appearances by Charlie Daniels, Ashley Judd, Elijah Wood, The Georgia Satellites and other all took to stage in Atlanta at the Georgia Dome. The performances included “Tuckered Out,” “It’s A Little Too Late,” “T-R-O-U-B-L-E,” “No One Else On Earth” and “Love Can Build A Bridge.”
On his experience at Super Bowl XXVIII, Travis Tritt tells iwasBORNcountry.com: “Playing the 1994 Super Bowl Halftime Show was a huge thrill and a great honor for me! Performing in front of that huge live and television audience is an unforgettable experience of a lifetime!”

With Super Bowl 51 heading to Houston, TX in 2017, perhaps it’s time to get some country acts back onto that Halftime stage? I don’t know… Maybe some George Strait? Who would you like to see perform at next year’s big game? Tell us in the comments below!
