Travis Tritt Country Music Trilogy

Emotional Country Music Trilogy by Travis Tritt – Three Music Videos Telling A Compelling Story in Mini Movie Format

Three Travis Tritt Hit Songs, Each a Sequel to the Other – Telling a Story Like a Movie

The First Song of the Trilogy; ‘Anymore’

‘Anymore’ is the first chapter of the story of Mac and Annie Singleton. Mac, a war veteran, returns home to a veterans hospital and, during his rehabilitation, has a difficult time accepting that he’ll never walk much so that he’s unable to respond to Annie’s letters. Eventually, his friend Al, who’s his friend throughout all the videos, convinces him that he cannot do this thing called ‘life’ on his own. As the song ends, Mac eventually wins the battle between mind and self and decides he’s ready to go home and begin anew with Annie.

The Second Song; ‘Tell Me I Was Dreaming’

The song begins with Mac and Annie living a happy life with their first baby on the way. When things seem perfect, Annie has a terrible fall on their boat dock. Mac, understandably panicked, rushes over and begs for Annie’s life. At the hospital, the doctor tells Mac he has a beautiful little girl, but they couldn’t save his wife. I have to say, the first time I watched this video, I found it very upsetting…it’s hard to wrap your mind around the heartache Mac’s been asked to endure throughout his life. The song ends with the conflicting feelings of joy for his newborn baby girl, who he names Annie, and terrible sadness knowing he’ll have to face the rest of his life without his wife and Annie without a mother.

The Third Song; ‘If I Lost You’

In terms of mood and lyrics, ‘If I Lost You’ will send shivers up your spine. This song goes deep into the soul of any man expressing his undying and never ending love for a child. Of course, there’s a double message in this video; the thought of losing his daughter the way he lost his wife. The story in this video takes place on Annie’s birthday; when Annie is a little girl, Mac always brings her to the spot her mommy was buried – As you’ve probably figured out, it’s a birthday and a death day. Little Annie asks her daddy at the end, ‘Daddy, why do you always bring me here on my birthday..and Daddy answers, ‘well, it’s kind of a special day for mommy too.’

All Three Songs are On Different Album Releases

The trilogy itself is a compelling way to feature country music. It takes storytelling to its natural next level. However, having these songs created for three separate albums is artistically smart! You’ll find the first song, ‘Anymore’ on his album, ‘It’s All About to Change’ (it was released as the second single in 1991); Tell Me I Was Dreaming was released on his album, ‘Ten Feet and Bulletproof’ as the fourth single in 1995; and finally, ‘If I Lost You’ was released as a single on his 1998 Album, ‘No More Looking Over My Shoulder.’
