Product Description

Travis Tritt ~ Down The Road I Go

Amazon.com

Despite the bluesy bark of Travis Tritt's soulful vocals, his artistry lacks the bite of his outlaw heroes. His first album for Columbia (after a decade with Warner Bros.) finds him once again mixing country tradition with rock dynamics. "Livin' on Borrowed Time" sounds enough like Hank Williams Jr. that it could pass as Bocephus Lite, while the title cut recycles every ramblin'-man cliché from the Allman/Skynyrd school. On "Never Get Away from Me," he offers sound-alike homage to Waylon Jennings (and wife Jessi Colter). For all of Tritt's good-ol'-boy bluster, the bittersweet balladry of "Best of Intentions" and the bluegrass uplift of "It's a Great Day to Be Alive" suggest that he's really a softy at heart, and more than an echo of his influences. --Don McLeese

DO NOT listen to the editiorial reviewer!! This is Travis at his best. His last album was a big disappointment, but this one- a long time coming- puts him back at the top of his game. It rocks- maybe not as hard as some of his earlier work, but has more of a feel of a mix between a classic '70s Waylon album and classic Travis. There is an excellent balance of rockers and ballads (and the ballads are not the gooey kind!)Unlike too many albums today- your skip button will definitely get a rest here. On first listening there wasn't anything I disliked- only a couple of songs not as strong as others, like It's A Great Day To Be Alive, but the more I listen, the more it grows on me- the lyrics aren't the greatest, but I love the instrumental end of it. If you want country that rocks, without losing it's country roots, Travis is the only real deal around in what is considered "country music". Keep your Garth and Shania- he even blows Tim McGraw out of the water! And old Hoss would definitely be PROUD, as would the rest of the "outlaws", that someone is carrying on the torch and doing it right.

As the Country Music Columnist for BellaOnline.com, I highly recommend this album to all Tritt fans.... and Country Music fans.
Tritt's first album with Columbia offers a new mellow side of the artist. It shows a new transition in sound with the new record company. Tritt has always been a great songwriter. He blends a southern rock, Mississippi Blues, and Outlaw Country together.
"Down the Road i Go" continues to add this mix while also showcasing where Tritt is in his personal life. Tritt took off the past couple years after getting married to help raise his two children. He was nervous taking the time off but with the quality of this album, it paid off. The first single, "Best of Intentions", stayed at the number one spot for three weeks.
Tritt is now finalizing his tour plans for 2001 and promises to cover the entire U.S. This album might not showcase the Tritt that you are familiar with but it's a winner and it's great to see Tritt expanding his style.

After the disappointing "No More Looking Over My Shoulder", I had serious doubts as to what "Down The Road I Go" would sound like. Those doubts were dispelled the first time I played it through. This collection of songs is so solid; I think there's only one track I didn't particularly like the first time I heard it. This CD is Travis at his most soulful, no holds barred best. To me, this was the CD that should have been the logical musical progression from "Ten Feet Tall And Bulletproof". The great thing about this CD to me is that it's not a blatant attempt at commercialism. There aren't going to be 6 hit singles off it. But, if you like music that's "back to the roots", music that's solidly written, composed, and performed, you'll absolutely play this one over and over again. It's Travis in maturity and comfort with his music, at one with it, and this is good. Others might disagree, but the influences I hear on "Down The Road I Go" are Hank Williams Sr. and very early Lynyrd Skynyrd. In short, this CD is a tour de force. Travis is back, and this might be looked back on as his best collection of work ever.

OK, so I caught the 'Bonnie & Clyde' video on CMT and was taken with the music as well as Billy Bob Thornton's rough-hewn features. A die-hard country fan friend offered to get a copy of the song or the CD for me, and I said, sure - I'll listen to the whole CD. How bad can it be - I'll just fast-forward past the 'twangy' parts.
Boy - did that CD open up a new musical world for my narrow tastes! It was fabulous start to finish, starting out with a hell of a cut, "Down The Road I Go." Travis' voice evokes the earthy sounds of the old-style country sound of the 60's and 70's coupled with the best of the 'new' generation of country artists. I've listened to the whole CD several times in the last week, and am searching out new Tritt CDs to buy and enjoy.
You go, Boy! And don't even THINK about cuttin' that hair!

This is the kind of album that makes hard rockers like me start listening to Honky-tonk and liking it. I, like other reviewers enjoyed the "Modern Day Bonnie and Clyde." video. I mentioned it to my friend, who lives country music. I also happened to mention that one of my favorite country songs happens to be "Here's A Quarter Call Someone Who Cares!". She mentioned that it too was from Travis Tritt. She married a guy that looks just like Travis. She told me that the whole album is one of the best country albums she's ever heard.

I think I have to aggree with her. Every song is strong. I think that Modern Day Bonnie and Clyde is one of the greatest country songs I've ever heard.

Down The Road I Go - The reality of a loner that lives on the road not wanting to "Find grass stains on the bottom of my feet!" He talks of how the girl needs to nail him to the ground because be's born to run.

Livin' On Borrowed Time - Living on the edge, no money to do anything, just surviving paycheck to paycheck.

Best of Intentions - A great balad love song. Tells of how a woman loves him even though he can't "build you a castle". No matter how bad things get, or how badly he does, he's always had the best of intentions. Great hit. Great sound.

It's a Great Day To Be Alive - Just happy with the way things are and living life for what it is.

Love Of A Woman - How the love of a woman is the best thing for a man. How women know them better then they know themselves. How no matter how hard, or wild they are their women are in control.

Never get away from me - Not letting go of the woman that you love. Despite rejection from family. How love can cross barriers and bridge disputes.
