Country music star Travis Tritt will be the featured performer for this year’s Great Ogeechee Seafood Festival, an event of the RHBC Chamber. Tritt joins Tyler Reese Tritt, Chuck Courtenay, Luke Lander, The Brian Fuller Band, Liquid Ginger and Lyn Avenue as the entertainment slated for this year’s event, Oct. 19-21 at J.F. Gregory Park.

Tritt’s career began more than 27 years ago when the Marietta native incorporated Southern rock, blues and gospel with his country style during a honky-tonk apprenticeship that led him to Warner Brothers in 1989.

According to travistritt.com over the course of a decade Tritt released seven studio albums and a greatest hits package for the label including his 1990 debut Country Club.

 

The songs “Country Club,” “Help Me Hold On,” “I’m Gonna Be Somebody” and “Drift Off to Dream” peaked at numbers two and three on the Hot Country Singles and Tracks charts; all which led for Tritt to win Top New Male Artist award from Billboard and the CMA Horizon Award.

Tritt has performed at the 1996 Olympics, two Super Bowls, a World Series Game, the opening of the Georgia Dome, the final Braves game at Atlanta-Fulton County Stadium and, in 2013, the NCAA men’s basketball championship.
