Ready for an Emotional Ride Before Listening to Travis Tritt’s ‘Anymore’

Anymore by Travis Tritt
by

Travis Tritt has been making noise in country music for more than thirty years. Since the late 1980s, the creative singer-songwriter has released twelve studio albums, seven of which have been certified platinum or even higher. 

Those dozen albums have resulted in more than forty charting singles, with five No. 1 hits among them. This includes his 1991 song “Anymore,” the second single off of his album It’s All About to Change.

Co-written by Travis Tritt with songwriter Jill Colucci, the song features an emotional message which resonated around the world. It topped the charts in both the U.S. and Canada. Here, Tritt finds himself telling a woman that he’s been holding back his feelings and refuses to hide it anymore. He wants her to know that she loves him before it’s too late.

He sings, “My heart can’t take the beating, not having you to hold. A small voice keeps repeating, deep inside my soul. It says I can’t keep pretending, I don’t love you anymore.”

The Music Video For “Anymore” Further Enhanced The Emotional Nature Of The Song 

The members of the military, without a doubt, sacrificed a lot for their country. Travis Tritt brought everyone’s attention to the immense sacrifice veterans have to make while they were overseas as well as the difficulties they have to face once they finally return home in his powerful music video for “Anymore.”

The music video further enhanced the emotional nature of the song. It was directed by Jack Cole, and it was the first of a trilogy of music videos (the second being “Tell Me I Was Dreaming” in 1995, and the third was “If I Lost You” in 1998) that tells the story of a veteran named Mac Singleton.

Singleton was a wheelchair-bound Vietnam War veteran played by Tritt himself. While his physical injuries are challenging enough to live with, the emotional scars from the war plague Singleton even more. While he was recovering, he suffered from horrific nightmares about the war. He was never able to find peace because the nightmares come back one night after the next.

Singleton was finally able to find comfort and support from a fellow veteran he met, named Al. With his new friend’s help, Singleton was able to push through his recovery.

In addition to his nightmares, Singleton also struggled to find the courage to get in touch with his wife, Annie. He was too afraid to tell her about the life-changing injury that he suffered in the war, so Singleton pretended that he no longer loves her. But by the end of the video, he finally got tired of pretending and decided to return home to her.

The video for “Anymore” had a deep impact on those who watched it unfold. So much that CMT featured it in 100 Greatest Music Videos in 2004, where it ranked at No. 64.

If you have seen the video for “Anymore” before, then you know it’s worth watching again, and as for those of you that haven’t, get ready, because it is one emotional roller coaster. But that’s what makes it so outstanding.
