It’s been a while since country singer Travis Tritt released “The Storm,” his 10th studio album – 12 years, to be exact.

But in the meantime, Tritt hasn’t stopped releasing music. There was the compilation album “The Calm After …” in 2013 and the live album “Homegrown” in May.

“Homegrown” was recorded in Augusta, Georgia, last year. The set also was filmed for a special titled “Travis Tritt: Homegrown,” which premiered on AXS TV in June.

The performance features classic Tritt songs including “Put Some Drive in Your Country,” “I’m Gonna Be Somebody,” “Whiskey on Ice,” “Country Club,” “Here’s a Quarter (Call Someone Who Cares)” and “T-R-O-U-B-L-E,” as well as stories from Tritt’s lengthy career.

Tritt shared even more stories, including his reasons for not wearing a cowboy hat, with Dan Rather in a conversation for “The Big Interview,” which also aired in June.

Tritt will headline the “Outlaws and Renegades” tour when it stops by Northern Quest Resort and Casino on Aug. 13.
