Review for Travis Tritt: 

The highly abbreviated Tritt timeline has the young Georgian incorporating lifelong influences in Southern Rock, blues and gospel into his country during a honky-tonk apprenticeship that led him to Warner Bros. His 1990 debut Country Club and its succession of hits put him in the vanguard of the genre’s early ’90s boom. At the same time, his conspicuous lack of a cowboy hat and musical aggressiveness set him apart. The next eight albums and scores of hit singles 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. 

His performance slate is full with full-band productions and solo-acoustic shows.

“I feel so humbled and blessed to be where I am right now,” says Travis. “My voice has never been stronger, I’m constantly playing and working to become a better guitar player, banjo player, vocalist and songwriter. I am honestly as excited about the creative process and performing now as I was the day I signed my first record deal.” Music is still what gives him joy. “I have the same energy, the same amount of love for live performance and for working in the studio that I had when I was first getting started.”

“The odd thing is, and I can’t explain this, but I think I’m singing better than I did in my 20s and 30s. Plus, I’ve got a higher range now than I had when I was in my early 30s. And since we started doing the acoustic shows, people come up to me commenting on my singing or, more often, my guitar playing."
