What The Critics Are Saying About Travis Tritt's "The Calm After"


cover_final_01_1500_rgb“Tritt’s vocal is soaring and impressive, as you would expect it to be, but also shining bright on the classic is his daughter, Tyler Reese – who sounds a lot more mature than her years. I think we’ll be seeing a lot more of her. At the same time, I hope her father doesn’t make it too long between albums. We need Travis Tritt around. This disc is a sterling reminder why!” – Billboard
“He’s still got soul, pouring himself into the performance and making sure the audience got what they came for.” – Charleston City Paper
“‘Sometimes Love Just Ain’t Enough,’ the second being the Faces’ ‘Stay with Me’ — for good measure. These additions don’t greatly change what is essentially an excellent excursion in soul-injected modern country, one that demonstrates Tritt’s considerable range as a vocalist. As The Storm, it got unjustly buried. Hopefully, as The Calm After… this album will finally find the audience it deserves.” – All Music
“A new duet with his daughter, Tyler Reese Tritt, on the Don Henley and Patty Smyth hit ‘Sometimes Love Just Ain’t Enough’ reveals a new vocal talent….” – Milwaukee Journal
“Country singer Tritt just released a very sweet duet with his daughter, a cover of Patty Smyth and Don Henley’s ‘Sometimes Love Just Ain’t Enough.'” – Washington Post
“The Calm After … is ample proof that Tritt was wise in taking the gamble. It is a vocal tour de force in which the singer demonstrates his mastery of the blues, ballad and soul idioms. He growls, croons, rocks and purrs with utter emotional conviction.” – CMT News
“Travis Tritt is a legend in the music industry especially on the country music scene.” – FoxNY.com
“There are a pair of new tracks on the disc that fans will no doubt be familiar with. There’s a scorching take on the Faces classic ‘Stay With Me.’ Tritt simply kills the rock classic with a vocal that is long on bravado and confidence.” – Music News Nashville
