Editors’ Notes

One standout song on Travis Tritt’s 2000 effort Down the Road I Go is “Never Get Away from Me,” a tale of lifelong romance based on Waylon Jennings and his real-life wife, Jessi Colter. Tritt does a convincing job of conjuring Waylon’s inimitable style without aping the master. Clearly, the student has earned the right to pay tribute to his mentor. Waylon’s influence recurs on the gently swaggering rhythms of “Modern Day Bonnie and Clyde,” "Down the Road I Go,” and “If the Fall Don’t Kill You,” the latter of which was cowritten with Charlie Daniels. Like Jennings, Tritt has a way of making danceable songs without making dance songs. Likewise, he can make hummable songs that aren’t pop (“It’s a Great Day to Be Alive”) and gospel songs that aren’t religious (“Love of a Woman”). As far as modern country singers go, Tritt’s taste is fairly progressive. But his best songs are often his resolutely down-home country tunes. A unsentimental ode to being broke in the rural South, “Livin’ on Borrowed Time,” shows Tritt’s ability to reanimate timeless themes without resorting to cliché or imitation.

Great Day to Be Alive

Every song on this album is GREAT. Not a country fan? Not a Travis Tritt fan? This CD you will like anyway.

Great Album!!!

As a young black female I must say that not only this album but the man himself && the voice, which I love, turned me on to country music. This album is one of the best I have ever listened to. When I can go through the whole entire album without skipping a song you've got something good!!! Wonderful wonderful wonderful!!!


Everytime I feel I'm having a bad day, I listen to this song which helps me realize that life is what I make of it and how lucky I am to be able to put two feet on the ground. DEFINITELY worth $0.99!

Travis Tritt was one of the leading new country singers of the early '90s, holding his own against Garth Brooks, Clint Black, and Alan Jackson. He was the only one not to wear a hat and the only one to dip into bluesy Southern rock. Consequently, he developed a gutsy, outlaw image that distinguished him from the pack. Throughout the early '90s, he had a string of platinum albums and Top Ten singles, including three number one hits. Tritt fell in love with music as a child, teaching himself how to...
