6. Travis Tritt

With the Hall having already added Garth Brooks and Alan Jackson, Travis Tritt is another member of the legendary “Class Of ‘89” in country music. 1989 was an important year in country music where a brand new class of artists debuted, which while they faded out some of the older singers, this was also a turning point for bringing in new music and some new audiences. Bringing some southern rock influences into his songs, Travis was able to inject energy into mainstream country music that wasn’t being brought in by his fellow peers. His radio career ended up being kind of up and down and it faded out quicker than some of the other stars of that era, but his personality and great catalogue of songs keep people coming back to him. Having 9 Grammy award nominations and 15 CMA award nominations, Travis should be making his way into the Hall Of Fame pretty soon.
