I know that when this Texas native has been quiet for awhile, he’s brewing something good…and I was right! After going a few months without any new content, Travis Garland and his #tgtuesdays are here to change the game!

You may know Travis Garland from the boy band NLT that disbanded in 2009. You’ve probably also heard him sing during Dancing With The Stars and the MISS USA Pageant, or through his associations with Hoodie Allen, Tori Kelly, JoJo, Brian Puspos and more! It’s possible you’ve even heard of him from the third season of WEtv’s “Marriage Boot Camp: Reality Stars” (which we NEVER talk about), or because I bring him up whenever I get a chance to! Whether or not those things ring true, you’ve heard of him now!

What we can talk about is how Travis is constantly trying to give great content to his fans!

In September, he released his EP titled Uppers + Downers, Volume 1 for free on his Soundcloud, which is loaded with additional covers, original music and his self-titled debut album.

In early February, Travis surprised his fans by announcing that they could expect a new video from him every Tuesday.

And it all started with this:

My favorite female vocalist + my favorite male vocalist. Like…excuse me?


Then he had to go and do this:

The first time I heard “Pillow Talk” by ZAYN, I knew it had Travis written all over it. Hearing this the first time was pretty exciting.

My favorite thing about his covers is that he puts his own spin on it EVERY. TIME. Anyone can sing a song, but with his vocals I am feeling all of the feels

If you like what you hear so far, be sure to subscribe so you don’t miss new uploads every Tuesday!


Hopefully his teeth remain in tact for awhile because

  1. I’m looking forward to Travis reviving the songs that we already know and love.
  2. I need to hear a rendition of “Fill Me In” by Craig David because that needs to happen.

Check out last Tuesday’s upload where he gives you all of the Adele feels.

If you’re digging his music, you can check out his soundcloud that he blessed with other covers and original tracks! Also, if you’re heading to SXSW later this month, he’ll be there!
