Travis Tritt's 2000 album, DOWN THE ROAD I GO, spawned several hits: "Modern Day Bonny and Clyde," about a pair of outlaws (the video featured Billy Bob Thornton); "It's a Great Day to Be Alive," about a former outlaw who looks back on his ruff n rowdy past with a smile; "Love of a Woman," a stand-by-your-man anthem about how men cannot live without their women; and the best of all, Tritt's own "Best of Intentions," about a man who's sorry for not fullfilling his dreams.
But there are other gems on here, such as the rowdy title track and "Livin On Borrowed Time." You've also got "Never Get Away From Me," a simple but enjoyable tribute to Waylon and Jessi. Or "I Wish I Was Wrong," which tests Tritt's superb vocals. The final track, "Southbound Train," is a romping tune of a woman heading to Florida to kick back and cut loose.
DOWN THE ROAD I GO is one of Travis Tritt's best efforts. Though his songwriting doesn't get as much credit on this album as in past records, it is still there--marking Tritt as one of contemporary country's best singer/songwriters. With a powerhouse voice and undeniable outlaw status, Travis Tritt is a legend in the making.
