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 a heavy appearance schedule, Travis is proving to be unstoppable.

The highly abbreviated Travis Tritt timeline started when the young Marietta, Georgia, native incorporated his lifelong influences of Southern rock, blues and gospel into his country during a honky-tonk apprenticeship that led him to Warner Bros. in 1989. Over the course of a decade, Travis 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 vanguard of the genre's early '90s boom, dubbing him as one of "The Class of '89," which included Garth Brooks, Clint Black, and Alan Jackson, all who 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, which led Travis 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 his debut album Country Club as certified Platinum.

Two years after his debut, Travis' sophomore 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 its singles reached the top five on the country music charts. Along with his first album, this release became triple-Platinum certified by the RIAA.

At the same time, his conspicuous lack of a cowboy hat and musical assertiveness set him apart. The next series of albums, seven of which are certified Platinum or higher, scored Travis more hit singles and led him to amass more than 25 million in career album sales, two Grammy Awards, three CMA Awards, and a devoted fan base that filled venues coast-to-coast.

Travis has been a force in sports appearances, having performed at the 1996 Olympics, two Super Bowls, a World Series Game, the opening of the Georgia Dome, the final Braves game at Atlanta-Fulton County Stadium and, in 2013, the NCAA men's basketball championship.

In 2012, Travis formed his own label, Post Oak Recordings, and shortly after released his album The Calm After. Most recently, he released a new project, a special live 2-disc CD and DVD, titled A Man and His Guitar - Live From The Franklin Theatre. The much-anticipated release shot and recorded at the historic Franklin Theatre in Franklin, Tennessee, spotlights Travis' distinctively soulful voice and his exceptional guitar prowess in an intimate theater setting.

The Southern-rock influenced artist continues to stay true and relevant to country music fans across the globe. In 2015, Travis topped the SoundScan Top 200 Catalog Country Albums chart for over 60 consecutive weeks with 15 weeks spent at #1 and 35+ weeks notched in a Top 5 position. His compilation album, Very Best of Travis Tritt (2007), saw a resurgence of sales that started in November 2014. The 20-track album features some of Travis' biggest hits, including "It's a Great Day to be Alive," "Here's a Quarter" and "Anymore."


Tickets for this performance are priced at $88, $68, $58 and $38. Tickets are available at the Theatre's website at www.mccallumtheatre.com or by calling the McCallum Theatre Box Office at (760) 340-ARTS.
