TRAVIS TRITT began his career when he incorporated his lifelong influences of Southern rock, blues and gospel into his country music during a honky-tonk apprenticeship that led him to Warner Bros. in 1989. Over the course of a decade, he released seven studio albums and a greatest hits package for the label. His 1990 debut Country Club and its succession of hits put him in the frontline of the genre's 1990 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 RIAA marked Tritt’s debut album Country Club as certified platinum.
More than 25 years after TRAVIS TRITT launched his music career, the southern-rock influenced artist continues to stay true and relevant to Country music fans. In 2015, Tritt topped the SoundScan Top 200 Catalog Country Albums chart for over 60 consecutive weeks with 15 weeks spent at No. 1 and 35+ weeks notched in a Top 5 position. Tritt’s compilation album, Very Best of Travis Tritt, which was release in 2007, saw a resurgence of sales that started in November 2014. The 20-track albums features some of his biggest hits, including “It’s A Great Day To Be Alive,” “Here’s A Quarter,” and “Anymore.”
