Travis Tritt Readies Dave Cobb-Produced Comeback Album

A new original studio album is on the way from Travis Tritt, finally. Announced Wednesday morning (3/11), the 90’s country legend who’s sold more than 30 million records worldwide has signed with the Los Angeles-based record label Big Loud Noise, and will be releasing a Dave Cobb produced record in 2020.

“I’m very excited about recording the new album with Dave Cobb,” Travis Tritt says. “I’m also glad to be partnering with the Big Noise team and I’m looking forward to promoting this album with them in my corner.”

It’s been since 2007 and Travis Tritt’s album The Storm that he’s released new studio music, not including multiple live records in recent years, a compilation, and a few contributions to the works of others. That put Tritt at or near the top of active country artists racking up time between studio projects, and made Tritt fans voracious for new music.

“We get to work with a lot of great artists at Big Noise, but truthfully I never thought we’d have the honor of working with someone of Travis’ stature,” says Jon Cohen, President of Big Noise Music Group. “Travis is a legend, plain and simple. He’s an innovator and an outlaw, perfect for our roster at Big Noise.”

Travis Tritt put fans on alert in early February that new music might be coming. In a missive posted by Tritt on Instagram, he revealed he’d been co-writing with country music dynamic duo Brent Cobb and Adam Hood—the combination behind some great country songs over the last few years. “This writing session today with Brent Cobb and Adam Hood was next level!” Tritt said. “You’ll be hearing some or all of this stuff on my new album.”

We don’t have a track list or any further details yet, but with the hot name of Dave Cobb behind him in the studio, it could be a good comeback record for the Georgia native, and it’s coming at a good time.

The catalog of Travis Tritt is receiving renewed attention due to Dierks Bentley’s Hot Country Knights featuring Tritt on their current radio single, “Pick Her Up,” which saw Tritt return to the charts for the first time in 13 years. The singer also just made his first appearance on the rock charts as a guest of rocker Cory Marks on the song “Outlaws & Outsiders,” which came in at #38 on the Billboard Mainstream Rock Songs chart last week. Travis Tritt also received renewed attention last year after he appeared as a judge on the USA Network singing competition Real Country.

More information on the new album when it’s made available.
