The Legendary Country Music Artist’s Background & History
Travis Tritt is a native of Marietta, GA and began his music career approximately 27 years ago. Tritt’s musical inspiration came from a combination of Southern rock, blues and gospel according to his official website.
His career really took off after becoming a part of Warner Bros. music in 1989. This marked the beginning of a decade-long streak of seven country album releases which included a greatest hits compilation. Tritt is a part of the vaunted country music “Class of ‘89” which includes fellow superstars Garth Brooks, Clint Black, and Alan Jackson.
Hits like “Country Club,” “Help Me Hold On,” “I’m Gonna Be Somebody,” and “Drift Off to Dream” peaked at numbers two and three on the Hot Country Singles and Tracks chart. Additionally, in 1991, the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA) certified Tritt’s debut album “Country Club” as platinum.
Tritt has also been a conspicuous figure in sporting events having performed in two Super Bowls, the 1996 Olympics, the World Series, the opening of the Georgia Dome, the final Atlanta Braves game at Fulton County Stadium, and the NCAA Men’s Basketball championship.
Today, Tritt’s artistry remains as relevant as it was when he first hit the big time. In 2015, he sat atop the SoundScan Top 200 Catalog Country Albums chart for over 60 consecutive weeks. He has always been a breed apart from his fellow country music performers with his lack of a cowboy hat and musical aggressiveness. His soulful voice and expert guitar work, however, continue to impress long-time fans and attract a whole new audience on an ongoing basis.
