Travis Tritt
genre:
Country, Reissues

We gave it a B

When Tritt debuted in 1990, he was dismissed as a Hank Williams Jr. clone, a rowdy honky-tonker steeped in deep-dish Southern fare. But the Georgia native with the club-cured, scotch-and-stogies baritone soon carved out his own identity based on his evocative ballads and harder-rockin’ testosterone-fueled barn burners. These two 16-track discs are sold individually, but the ballad-heavy Lovin’ Side would have benefitted from a little of Tritt’s sweatier stuff. Make your own mix at home. Rockin’: A- Lovin’: B
