James Travis Tritt began singing and songwriting at a very young age. He received his first guitar at age 8 and taught himself to play. Soon after, he joined his church's band. He gained experience with the church band by playing at multiple churches in the area. During this time, Tritt recognized the different ways people sang with "bends and twists and curls" in their voices. He began to experiment with his own sound, described by many as soulful country with a bit of southern rock mixed in. Tritt was first signed with Warner Bros. to perform six songs on his first album. Three of the songs were released as singles. "Country Club" was his first single, and it spent 26 weeks on the Hot Country Singles and Tracks charts. Four more singles from this album went on to peak within the top three, including "I'm Gonna Be Somebody." The album received positive reviews, and Tritt's style was compared to that of Hank Williams, Jr. and Joe Stampley.

In addition to receiving two Grammy Awards for Best Country Collaboration with Vocals, he received four awards from the Country Music Association and also became a member of the Grand Ole Opry in 1992. Early in his career, Tritt decided that he was not going to carry on with the male and sometimes female country artists' affiliations with cowboy hats. He says he has no ill-will toward cowboy hats, but besides trying to set himself apart from other country stars, he just had a whole lot of hair that he did not want to cover up.
