Travis Tritt has just released the third single from his latest album, and it truly shows the country singer’s longing for the days gone by. Titled “They Don’t Make ‘Em Like That No More,” the song simply looks back to a time when life was much more laidback.
Throughout the track, Tritt took a hard look back to the good old days – singing about old cars, women in the past, and of course, the classic country music. And the way he sees it, everything was better back in the day, even highlighting that today’s new music can’t be compared to the old-school country.
He made that loud and clear in the chorus, as he sings, “Newer ain’t better buddy, that’s for sure.”
The Longing For The Things Gone By Created a Brand-New Song For Travis Tritt
Travis Tritt wrote the song with country singer-songwriter Dillon Carmichael, whom he admits he has been a fan of since he first heard him a few years back. This is actually the first song they ever wrote.
The country star took to Twitter on how the song came into life. Tritt revealed that they had the idea of the song while talking about “some of the greatest recordings that I’ve ever heard and the greatest experiences that I’ve ever had.” And the rest was history! The song came to life in just a very short period of time.
In addition, Tritt has also released its music video which features old performances of country hitmakers like Waylon Jennings, Loretta Lynn, Dolly Parton, Merle Haggard, and so much more. There’s even a clip of music-goers line dancing, dressed in a very fancy retro-western fashion.
The album Set In Stone, which was released in May last year, is actually Tritt’s first studio record in more than a decade. Other Travis Tritt songs included in the album are its lead single “Ghost Town Nation” and the wistful “Smoke In A Bar.”
