Travis Tritt 

The Very Best Of Travis Tritt

It's hard to believe that almost 20 years ago, Marietta's Travis Tritt was singing cover songs at local dives such as the Buckboard and Miss Kitty's. Since then he has made quite a name for himself, winning multiple awards and selling tons of records. His consistency is obvious in the stellar 20 tracks on this new release. Tritt's songs successfully and honestly spoke for the middle-class, blue-collar crowd, and he has held steady on his dedication to his fans all along. At a time when America was going through some political upheaval, Tritt was singing "Lord Have Mercy On the Working Man." As the roles and relationships of men and women were shifting, he reminded us that "Sometimes She Forgets." And when most people had forgotten how to have fun, he took us to the "Country Club," where we all realized that "It's a Great Day To Be Alive." Thanks, Travis, we look forward to 20 more like these. 4 stars
