Travis Tritt brings his distinctive country and Southern rock sound to The Orleans Showroom December 14 and 15, part of Boyd Gaming’s Wrangler National Finals Rodeo entertainment line-up.
In 1990, Tritt released his debut album, “Country Club,” that included his first No. 1 hit, “Help Me Hold On.” His second album, “It’s All About to Change,” featured four top five singles: “Here’s a Quarter (Call Someone Who Cares),” “Anymore,” “Nothing Short of Dying” and a duet with fellow country singer Marty Stuart, “The Whiskey Ain’t Workin’.”
“T-R-O-U-B-L-E,” Tritt’s third album, was released in 1992, and in 1994 he released “Ten Feet Tall & Bulletproof.” The release produced the No. 1 country single, “Foolish Pride,” that also crossed over to the pop charts, reaching number 20.
Tritt earned Grammy Awards in 1992 for “The Whiskey Ain’t Workin’,” and in 1998 for “Same Old Train,” a collaboration with Stuart and nine other artists. Additionally, he has received four Country Music Association awards, and has been a member of the Grand Ole Opry since 1992.
Tritt has guest starred on numerous television shows including “Tales from the Crypt,” “Diagnosis Murder,” “Touched by an Angel” and “Yes Dear.” He recently wrapped production on the upcoming film “Brother’s Keeper” in which he portrays character Eddie Waters. The film is scheduled for release in early 2013.
