Rising country star Travis Denning is rarely seen without his trusty Bass Pro Shops hat. In fact, he wears it so much it’s become his signature on-stage look.

He began wearing the cap several years ago on accident.

“I think when I was about 18 or 19-years-old, a friend of mine actually left a Bass Pro Shops hat at my house,” the Georgia native recalls. “I wore it for a little bit. I just loved it. Mainly, it fit my head pretty well. I have a goofy-shaped head, thanks to my folks, but it fit well, and I thought it was just so timeless looking and very cool and nobody else was really wearing ‘em at the time. So, I just wore it all the time on stage.”

“2015 at CMA Fest, I had a kid come up and he had a Bass Pro Shops hat he bought and wanted me to sign,” he continues. “That was when I thought, ‘Oh, maybe this is like a thing.’ I haven’t stopped wearing ‘em since.”

Things will come full circle for Denning on August 17 when he headlines the Bass Pro Shops NRA Night Race pre-race concert at Bristol Motor Speedway.

Denning’s latest single, “After A Few,” is climbing the charts at country radio now. The singer co-wrote “After A Few” with Kelly Archer and Justin Weaver.
