About Travis Tritt
More than 27-years after Travis Tritt launched his music career, the Southern-rock influenced artist continues to display strong sales activity, sell-out shows, and stay true and relevant to Country music fans across the globe. Continuously performing shows and withholding a heavy appearance schedule, Tritt is proving to be unstoppable.
Between 1989 and 1999, Travis released seven studio albums and a greatest hits package. His 1990 debut Country Club and its succession of hits put him in the vanguard of the genre’s early ’90s boom, dubbing him as one of “The Class of ‘89,” which included Country music superstars Garth Brooks, Clint Black and Alan Jackson; all whom dominated the charts in the early ‘90s.
“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 & Tracks charts; all which led for Tritt to win Top New Male Artist award from Billboard and the CMA Horizon Award (now known as the New Artist Award). Additionally, in 1991, the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA) marked Travis’ debut album Country Club as certified platinum.
Two years after his Country Club debut, Travis’ second album, It’s All About to Change, was released. Literally speaking, this album changed everything when the album shipped three million copies and all four of it’s singles reached the top five on the country music charts. Along with his first album, this second album became triple-platinum certified by the RIAA.
At the same time, his conspicuous lack of a cowboy hat and musical aggressiveness set him apart. The next series of albums, seven of which are certified platinum or higher, scored him more hit singles and led him to amass more than 25 million in career album sales, two Grammys, three CMA Awards and a devoted fan base that filled venues coast-to-coast.
