  • Engineers: Alan Schulman, Chris Stone, Stephen Tillisch.
  • Recorded at Emerald Sound, Sound Emporium, Our Place and Sound Stage Studios, Nashville, Tennessee.
  • Travis Tritt recorded DOWN THE ROAD I GO after a self-imposed 18-month hiatus that saw him become a father for the second time, and sign with a new record company. The break seems to have done him good--DOWN THE ROAD I GO is more streamlined than his previous album, NO MORE LOOKING OVER MY SHOULDER. It's also pure country, both in its instrumentation and its subject matter.
  • The title track finds Tritt back in full outlaw mode, spitting contempt at any woman who tries to tie him down. "Livin' On Borrowed Time," a blue-collar lament, is reminiscent of Tritt's earlier hit, "Lord Have Mercy On the Workin' Man." Tritt also looks to his musical influences--he wrote two songs with his idol, Charlie Daniels, while the CD's highlight, "Never Get Away From Me" was inspired by and written for Waylon Jennings and his wife, Jessi Colter. Tritt turns in a great, tough-but-tender vocal performance here, adding just the right amount of Jennings-esque swagger. Overall, DOWN THE ROAD is an understated, heartfelt collection that illustrates why Tritt has lasted so long in the fickle world of modern country music.
