Guide Review - Travis Tritt - 'My Honky Tonk History'
I believe this album has the upbeat tempo of Tritt's early days, and I love it. Some may wonder why he has gone back to the days gone by of his career. I think he says it all in the song "Honky Tonk History" when he says, "the sounds of outlaw music sets me free." No doubt. Songs that reflect that are "When In Rome" and "When Good Ol' Boys Go Bad."
His first single to hit the airwaves, "The Girl's Gone Wild," is doing well on the charts. Not to mention the apparent success of the often played video.
Travis really tells us how he likes his music by his growls and yeah, yeah, yeah's. This is true Tritt and a must have for a fan of country, southern-rock and blues.
I saw Tritt back in 1991 in Nashville for the first time and I became a fan for life. He rocked. Although I may not have every album he has made (I'm only missing a couple), this is one I will have in the CD player for some time. And I must add, that I like the new hair-style.
