Behind “Modern Day Bonnie and Clyde”

Before we find out how the song was recorded by Tritt, let’s take a look at the making of this song. “Modern Day Bonnie and Clyde” was written by songwriters Walt Aldridge and James LeBlanc. In an interview with The Boot, LeBlanc shared how the song was made. When he was on his way to Alabama, he stopped in the town where Bonnie and Clyde were ambushed. He saw a pamphlet on a gas station and took it with him. In addition, the pamphlet contained everything about Bonnie and Clyde. He had an idea what to write when he told his co-writer Aldridge about it. They worked on making the song that same day.
