Self-Learnt Child Artist
During his childhood, Travis Tritt performed as part of the church choir. He taught himself to play the guitar when he was only eight years old. During his teens, he developed his talent further by involving himself in the composition of songs. After Tritt decided to take up music as a career, he started performing at local bars and clubs. Having made a name for himself within the Atlanta club music scene, Travis decided to relocate to Nashville where he was signed by the renowned label, Warner Bros. Records.
Birth of the Country Rocker
Travis Tritt’s first studio album, ‘Country Club’ was released in 1990. With its title track breaking into the list of the Country Top 10, Travis took no time in making an impression in the music industry. Other hit tracks from the record are ‘I’m Going to be Somebody’ and ‘Help Me Hold On.’ After a jump start, the musician’s career saw stability with the album ‘It’s All About to Change.’ With millions of copies sold in a short span of time, the record put Tritt in the spotlight among the likes of Alan Jackson and Garth Brooks. However, unlike these two renowned artists, Tritt defied the conventional cowboy country standards and treated his fans with modern rock style performances. Travis marked the end of the millennium with successful albums like ‘The Restless Kind’ and ‘No More Looking Over My Shoulder.’ Both the records made it into the Country Top 20.
Hits in the New Millennium
After leaving Warner Bros Records, Travis Tritt was soon signed by another famous label, Columbia Records with which his first album ‘Down the Road I Go’ was released in 2000. The record is his highest charting track (27th position) on the Billboard Hot 100. Two years later, the artist produced his second album with the label. The record ‘Strong Enough’ and its title track ‘Strong Enough to be Your Man’ reached number thirteen on the country music chart. Tritt completed his career’s tenth album with ‘My Honky Tonky History’ in 2004. The album’s most prominent singles are ‘I See Me,’ and ‘What Say You.’
Over the years, Travis Tritt has experimented with several music genres. His 2006 duet with soul legend Sam Moore grabbed a lot of attention. The following year, he teamed up with the American Idol judge Randy Jackson to produce the hit album ‘The Storm.’ The album’s most prominent singles include ‘You Never Take Me Dancing’ and ‘The Pressure Is On.’ In 2013, Tritt acquired the rights to re-release the album through his own label, Post Oak Records. This re-worked record by Travis Tritt is titled ‘The Clam After.’ It comprises of additional covers which include the Don Henley and Patty Smyth duet ‘Sometimes Love Just Ain’t Enough’ and ‘Stay With Me’ by Faces. With new covers and flavors of the country genre, the live act by the rocker will be a treat for the music fans. Like previous tours of the artist, Travis Tritt tickets for the latest one are also in great demand and are expected to sell out in a matter of days.
