Two-time Grammy Award winner Travis Tritt will perform to a sold-out crowd at Reynolds Performance Hall on the campus of the University of Central Arkansas Thursday, Feb. 14.

For more than 30 years the Southern rock-influenced artist has continuously sold-out shows and stayed true and relevant to country music fans around the globe. His 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 and paved the way for him to win the Top New Male Artist award from Billboard and the CMA Horizon Award. In 1991, the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA) labeled Tritt’s debut album “Country Club” as certified Platinum.

Tritt released his second album, “It’s All About to Change,” two years later and shipped three million copies with all four of its singles reaching the top five on the country music charts. This release became triple-platinum certified by the RIAA.

Tritt has made many sports appearances, performing at the 1996 Olympics, two Super Bowls, a World Series Game, the opening of the Georgia Dome and an NCAA men’s basketball championship game. He currently is a judge on the new USA Network show “Real Country.”
