Nineties country hit maker Travis Tritt is prepping for the next chapter of his career, signing a new record deal and revealing plans for a full album.

Signing with the Los Angeles-based independent, Big Noise Music Group, the celebrated vocalist and twang-rock hit maker will release his first album in more than 12 years in 2020, joining forces with Grammy winning producer Dave Cobb (Chris Stapleton, the Oak Ridge Boys). Tritt last cracked the Top 10 with 2002’s “Modern Day Bonnie and Clyde,” and his last studio album was 2007’s The Storm.

“I’m very excited about recording the new album with Dave Cobb,” Tritt says in a statement. “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.”

“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,” adds 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.”

The “T-R-O-U-B-L-E” singer is currently featured on the debut single of ’90s inspired band, Hot Country Knights (“Pick Her Up” featuring Travis Tritt), and is touring this month with rock legends Lynyrd Skynyrd. He’ll join Brooks & Dunn as part of the duo’s reunion tour starting in May.
