Travis Tritt Brings Church To The Honky Tonk With New Gospel Album ‘Country Chapel’

A Holy union of honky tonk and gospel.

Travis Tritt has done it again, but this time in a new light, releasing his first gospel album, Country Chapel

Back in July, Tritt had announced the upcoming project, thrilled to be partnering with Gaither Music for its release. Tritt took to social media after Gaither’s announcement that he had had the idea for Country Chapel for over thirty years, finally making it come to life.

“I’ve wanted to make this album for over thirty years, and I hope and pray that everyone who hears it will be inspired and encouraged through Jesus Christ.”

Tritt, who grew up in a very religious household, was shaped at a young age by the music sung throughout church services. Through the gospel songs in the choir, Tritt claims that is when he was bit by the music bug.

“I just realized that was something that I wanted to continue to be doing. Even though I didn’t pursue it as a career till many, many years later, I knew right then that was something that I wanted to do.”

Country Chapel flawlessly combines the ’90s honky tonk sound that Tritt is loved for with heartfelt messaging through each lyric and verse.

The Marietta, Georgia native highlights his Grammy Award-winning vocals throughout each track on the album while putting his honky tonk flare on some gospel classics.

Not to mention the breathtaking harmonies that will take you to church… maybe in more ways than one.

The album features “The Baptism of Jesse Taylor” by Johnny Russell, famously covered by The Oak Ridge Boys, as well as an incredible cover of Kris Kristofferson’s “Why Me.”

Give it a listen.
