Travis Tritt Releasing Duet With His Daughter for Father’s Day
Travis Tritt is marking Father’s Day in a very special way this year.
The singer is releasing a duet with his 15-year-old daughter, Tyler Reese. The pair have re-recorded the Patty Smyth/Don Henley hit ‘Sometimes Love Just Ain’t Enough.’
“We were driving home from a wedding in Florida when the song came up on my iPod,” Tritt tells GAC. “She started singing along in the backseat. When we got home I told my wife that I thought Tyler Reese could really do a great job on this. I know I sound like a biased parent, but she’s got a lot of talent and charisma.”
The proud dad adds, “The recording speaks for itself. She really nailed it.”
Their recording of the hit will be available as a single on June 16, and it’s also featured on Tritt’s upcoming album ‘The Calm After …,’ which he will release via his own Post Oak Recordings on July 9. The new record is an updated release of his 2007 album ‘The Storm,’ whose master tapes recently reverted to Tritt’s ownership.
“I’ve been talking about starting my own record label for five years, and it all hinged on having those masters back in my control,” Travis says. “I feel so humbled and blessed to be where I am right now. My voice has never been stronger, I’m constantly playing and working to become a better guitar player, banjo player, vocalist and songwriter. I am honestly as excited about the creative process and performing now as I was the day I signed my first record deal.”
