Tritt announces first single in more than a decade

Monday, September 14, 2020 – Travis Tritt, is set to release a new single "Ghost Town Nation" on Sept. 25.

The song is the first release off his forthcoming album, produced by Dave Cobb (Chris Stapleton, The Highwoman, Brandi Carlile). This is Tritt's first single in more than 10 years.

Written by Aaron Raitiere and JB Strauss, "Ghost Town Nation" is a song about making the best out of a bad situation. Filled with guitar-riffs and Tritt"s rich vocals, the song rallies for when times are tough, and the pressures run high, to head to the country and focus on the simple gratifications of living life outdoors. Tritt sings, "Well, I tell ya one thing that we all got in common; we ain"t gotta worry when the sky starts fallin', No need to panic when the lord comes callin', cause it"s all just a part of the show." The song continues, "We"ll load on up, take it out to the woods, where the fish are still biting, and the eating"s still good."

Tritt said, "I loved the overall groove of the song when I first heard the demo, but what really hooked me was the lyrics. At a time when so much of the country was on pandemic lockdown, I think the idea of escaping to a secluded spot in the woods was very appealing for a lot of folks. It reminded me of a 'country folks can survive' theme. I personally know a lot of folks that still do this regularly."

Tritt signed a record deal with Los Angeles-based label, Big Noise Music Group. Tritt is finishing up his an original full-length album, which is due out next year.

CD review - The Calm After... If you ever wonder what exactly happened to Travis Tritt, it's entirely possible he's asking the same thing himself. To review, there once was a time when grunge and hip hop were ascending, and millions of displaced popular music fans turned to its country cousin. Singers like Tritt welcomed the legion of new fans and never once insisted they wear a cowboy hat - he didn't either. From a debut album in 1990 to a (chock full) greatest hits in 1995, Tritt's star shone bright. ...
CD review - The Storm In an attempt to once again crack the Top 20, which he hasn't seen since 2002, Travis Tritt is trying to reinvent himself as a soulful country singer a la Tony Joe White and T.
