Watch Travis Tritt & His Daughter Tyler Reese ‘Sometimes Love Just Ain’t Enough’ Video
Travis Tritt has his first new song in almost five years. He released a duet with his 15-year-old daughter Tyler Reese Tritt on Father’s Day. And what a duet it is. What a voice for just 15! The song is a remake of Patty Smyth and Don Henley’s “Sometimes Love Just Ain’t Enough,” and the song is available on iTunes.
Travis says the idea to record the song together came during a car trip, ‘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!
“Sometimes” is the first single from Tritt’s upcoming album The Calm After…, which will be out July 9. The collection is a revised re-release of 2007’s The Storm, adding two new tracks – the single and Tritt’s cover of Faces’ “Stay With Me.”
Not featured on the album is the live acoustic version of “Why Me, Lord?,” the song he sang at the memorial for George Jones in May.
Travis continues a full tour schedule. Look for his daughter, Tyler Reese, to join her Dad as a special guest on select dates in 2013.
