More than twenty-seven 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.
His conspicuous lack of a cowboy hat and musical aggressiveness sets him apart. He’s received several Grammys, and numerous CMA Awards to date. Recently, Tritt topped the SoundScan Top
200 Catalog Country Albums chart for over 60 consecutive weeks with 15 weeks spent at No. 1 and over 35 weeks notched at the Top 5 position. Tritt’s compilation album, Very Best of Travis Tritt, which was released in 2007, saw a resurgence of sales that started in November of 2014. The 20-track album features some of Tritt’s biggest hits, including “It’s a Great Day to Be Alive”, “Here’s A Quarter”, and “Anymore”. Tritt is already continuing his momentum into 2019 with the Outlaws & Renegades Tour.
From his award winning gospel albums to his genre-defining Southern rock anthems and his CMA Award-winning country hits, few artists have left a more indelible mark on America’s musical landscape than Charlie Daniels. Charlie began his career playing bluegrass music with the Misty Mountain Boys. After moving to Nashville in 1967, he began making a name for himself as a songwriter, session musician and producer. Elvis Presley recorded a tune Charlie co-wrote titled “It Hurts Me”, which was released on the flip side of “Kissin Cousins”.
His own unique voice as an artist emerged as Charlie recorded his self-titled solo album in 1970 for Capitol Records. Two years later he formed the Charlie Daniels Band and the group scored its first hit with the top ten “Uneasy Rider”. Since then the CDB has populated radio with such memorable hits, including his signature song, “The Devil Went Down to Georgia”.
“I love what I do”, says Charlie of his 60-plus years in the music business. “I look forward to entertaining people. When show time gets here, I’m ready to go, ready to go play for them. It’s a labor
of love. I just thank God I make a living at what I enjoy doing”.
