A rare album recorded over 30 years ago by Travis Tritt, Proud of the Country, will be available on streaming services worldwide for the first time on April 28 via its original label, Copperhill Records. The first track from the collection, “Get A Little Rowdy,” is out now.
Proud of the Country is the record that reportedly landed Tritt his first-ever record deal and marked an integral turning point in Tritt’s career. A two-side album, Proud of the Country was originally released in 1987 on Copperhill Records, a label used by the Demo Listen Studio in Marietta, Georgia. Only 1000 physical copies were ever made, and the record has never been digitally released.
The album will be distributed by Reservoir imprint Painted Desert Music and features 11 songs that deliver the quintessential sound that drove Tritt to the top of the mainstream charts. The release of the project follows Reservoir’s acquisition of Tritt’s publishing and recorded music catalogs in 2022, a deal that included shares of the multi-Platinum artist’s entire body of work, excluding his most recent original full-length album, Set In Stone.
Tritt is currently gearing up for his 2023 tour, which will kick off March 30 in Troy, Ohio and visit select markets around the country. He is also set to join Eric Church on “The Outsiders Revival Tour” for two shows this summer in July.
