The early life of Travis Tritt

It was not until his church's Sunday school choir sang "Everything Is Beautiful" that James Tritt was interested in singing. He was born on February 09, 1963, in Marietta, Georgia, to James and Gwen Tritt. When he was eight, he got a guitar and taught himself how to play it. He played Annie's Song and King of the Road for his fourth-grade class and got invited to play for other classes. Tritt got his first guitar when he was 14 and taught himself more songs from his uncle, Sam Lockhart. He later joined his church band, which played at other churches occasionally.

The first song Tritt composed was about his breakup with a girlfriend while he was in Sprayberry High School. One of his friends complimented him on his songwriting skills after he performed the song for them. In a local tournament, he won second place for his song "Mammas Don't Let Your Babies Grow Up to Be Cowboys." He also founded a bluegrass band with his friends.

As a teenager, Tritt worked at a furniture store and then as a grocery clerk. When his parents divorced, he moved in with his mother; they remarried at 18. While playing in clubs, he worked for an air conditioning company, but he gave up that job after one of his bandmates suggested it. Tritt's dad says he would not succeed as a musician, while his mom believes he should sing Christian music instead.

After Tritt started recording demos for Warner Bros. Records, Danny Davenport helped him out. They worked together for a few years and eventually made a demo album called Proud of the Country. Warner Bros. signed Tritt in 1987 after Davenport sent the demo to the Los Angeles representative, who sent it to the Nashville division. Davenport also found Tritt a talent manager, Ken Kragen. When Kragen's wife convinced him to manage Tritt, he decided he was not interested in an "entry-level act".
