More than 25 years after Travis Tritt launched his music career, he continues to sell out shows, top sales charts, and stay true and relevant to country music fans across the globe. On the heels of sold-out shows throughout his solo acoustic tour and amid a heavy tour schedule that takes Tritt and his band across the country to play for packed-out crowds, the Southern rock-influenced artist topped the SoundScan Top 200 Catalog Country Albums chart for multiple weeks.

A Marietta, Georgia native, Tritt is dubbed one of “The Class of ‘89,” which included country music superstars Garth Brooks, Clint Black, and Alan Jackson, all of whom dominated the charts in the early 1990s. Among his 11 studio albums and numerous charted singles are 19 Top 10 hits, including “Modern Day Bonnie and Clyde,” “Love of a Woman,” and “T-R-O-U-B-L-E.” His long career has produced millions in album sales and multiple No. 1 singles on the country radio charts.

He has received two Grammy Awards, both for Best Country Collaboration with Vocals – in 1992 for “The Whiskey Ain’t Workin’,” a duet with Marty Stuart, and again in 1998 for “Same Old Train,” a collaboration with Stuart and nine other artists. He has received four awards from the Country Music Association and has been a member of the Grand Ole Opry since 1992.
