Hear Travis Tritt and His Daughter Tyler Reese Sing ‘Sometimes Love Just Ain’t Enough’ [VIDEO]
For the first time in six years, Travis Tritt is releasing a new single, and his daughter Tyler Reese Trit is helping. The 15 year-old sings with dad on ‘Sometimes Love Just Ain’t Enough;’ a remake of the Patty Smyth/Don Henley duet.
The song was originally recorded for his 2007 album ‘The Storm,’ but was shelved when a suitable duet partner could not be found in time for the album’s release. Last year, Tritt received ownership of the album’s masters from his former label and found a duet partner, in his own family. Travis says it happened during a ride home, ‘Last year we were driving home from a wedding in Florida when the song came up on my iPod. My 15-year-old daughter Tyler Reese had never heard the song, and she started singing along in the backseat. When it ended she made me play it again five or six more times. I was listening, but didn’t say anything.
When we got home, I told my wife I thought Tyler Reese could really do a great job on this song. We agreed and I took her in the studio to sing her parts. I know I sound like a biased parent, but she’s got a lot of talent and charisma. The recording speaks for itself. She really nailed it.’
That she did. I loved the original, but Tyler killed it. I guess she got her fathers singing genes and her mothers beautiful looks. Lucky girl! Give the song a listen and let us know what you think.
Travis is coming to Turning Stone June 27th.
