New York-based Reservoir Media has acquired the publishing and recorded music catalogs of two-time Grammy award-winning Country singer-songwriter Travis Tritt.
The news follows Reservoir’s recent acquisition of the publishing catalog of late Grammy-winning DJ, songwriter, and producer Fred Rister.
According to a media release announcing the news, the deal with Travis Tritt includes shares of Tritt’s entire body of work, up to his most recent album, Set In Stone.
Seven of Tritt’s albums are certified Platinum or higher and he has achieved more than 30 million in career album sales.
He also charted more than 40 times on the Hot Country Songs Chart, including earning five No.1s and 20 Top 10 hits.
In addition, Tritt has won two Grammy Awards, four Country Music Association Awards, was named Top New Artist at the Billboard Music Awards and is a member of the Grand Ole Opry.
Tritt released his debut LP, Country Club, in 1990, which included his first No.1 single, Help Me Hold On, and went on to be certified Platinum.
Tritt’s sophomore album, It’s All About to Change, achieved massive success, earning triple Platinum certification with all four singles, Here’s a Quarter (Call Someone Who Cares), The Whiskey Ain’t Workin’, Anymore, and Nothing Short of Dying, breaking the Top 5 on Billboard’s Hot Country Songs.
The Whiskey Ain’t Workin’ earned Tritt his first Grammy Award in 1992 for Best Country Collaboration with Vocals.
Tritt took home his second Grammy Award in 1999 in the same category for Same Old Train with Marty Stuart and others.
“Travis is a pillar of the ‘90s country movement, and his influence continues to impact the genre and its chart resurgence today.”
