Travis Tritt is making a major comeback.

The singer, who is best known for hits like “It’s A Great Day To Be Alive,” “Here’s A Quarter” and “Help Me Hold On,” just signed a new record deal with LA-label Big Noise Music Group and revealed plans to release his first original album in over 12 years.

The album, which is slated to be released later this year, is produced by award-winner Dave Cobb, the man behind records from artists such as Chris Stapleton, The Highwomen and Sturgill Simpson.

“I’m very excited about recording the new album with Dave Cobb,” Tritt shared 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, Jon Cohen, President of Big Noise Music Group, added. “Travis is a legend, plain and simple. He’s an innovator and an outlaw, perfect for our roster at Big Noise.”

To date, Travis Tritt has sold over 30 million albums. He has two Grammy Awards, four CMA Awards and is a member of the Grand Ole Opry.
