Talk about a blast from the past…
Travis Tritt’s 1987 album, Proud of the Country, is set to be released on streaming platform worldwide on April 28th.
It’s the album that’s often credited as the one that landed him his first record deal, and was recorded over three decades ago at Demo Listen Studio in Marietta, Georgia.
At the time, it was a 2-side album and released by Copperhill Records, which was a one-off label used by the aforementioned recording studio.
Only 1000 physical copies were ever made, and the record has never been digitally released, so most fans have never even heard it before. He released his official debut studio album Country Club a few years later in 1990 with major label Warner Records, and the rest, as they say, is history in terms of his legendary career in country music.
The Proud of the Country tracklist features 11 songs in total, with nine of them being solo writes by Travis, and the other two being co-writes by him with Joey and Danny Davenport and Eddie Queen.
It was produced by Danny Davenport, Billy Suit, and Tritt himself.
He released the first track “Get A Little Rowdy” today, and it’s safe to say, I think we’re in for quite a few more honky tonk heaters like this one…
