Travis Tritt

Given the current crop of sensitive New Age cowboys trying to be politically correct, it's refreshing to hear unrepentant good ol' boy Travis Tritt still raucously strutting his stuff on his latest album. Whether singing about getting into T-R-O-U-B-L-E in the bedroom ("Wishful Thinking") or the barroom (the title track), Tritt's hard-driving, hard-drinking swagger seems to just plain be in his blood. Why else would he continue to up the ante on his feud with Billy Ray Cyrus, whom he disses on the country-rock stomper "Outlaws Like Us"? Then again, anyone who has duetted in the past year with Patti LaBelle and David Lee Roth, as Tritt has, is likely to do anything, PC or otherwise—bless his ornery little hide. (Warner Bros.)
