Travis Tritt Announces Release Date, Details for New Album ‘The Calm After…’

Travis Tritt has announced the release date for his upcoming album ‘The Calm After…,’ his first studio effort since 2007.
The new project is actually an updated version of Tritt’s last album, ‘The Storm,’ which got mired in litigation between Tritt and his former label, Category 5. He’s been in a holding pattern for five years, recently re-acquiring the right to those masters and starting his own record label, Post Oak Recordings. He will release the new collection via Post Oak on July 9.
An iTunes pre-sale begins on June 25, but Tritt’s most dedicated fans will have the opportunity to hear the new music even before that, as he is currently offering it for sale at his live shows. “As a thank-you to those folks who come out to see us and have always been there to support me, we wanted to give them the album a little early,” Tritt explains in a press release. “I can’t wait for them to hear it.”

‘The Calm After…’ contains Tritt’s duet with his 15-year-old daughter, Tyler Reese, on the Patty Smyth/Don Henley classic ‘Sometimes Love Just Ain’t Enough,’ which was released as the album’s first single on Father’s Day. Not included on the new collection is his acoustic performance of ‘Why Me, Lord?’ from George Jones‘ funeral, but that is available as a single at iTunes, a move necessitated by demand after video of the performance went viral.

Tritt is clearly pleased to be back in the game and in control of his own musical destiny. “I feel so humbled and blessed to be where I am right now,” he says. “My voice has never been stronger, I’m constantly playing and working to become a better guitar player, banjo player, vocalist and songwriter. I am honestly as excited about the creative process and performing now as I was the day I signed my first record deal.”
