Throwback Jam: “Anymore”

Travis Tritt dominated the 1990s.

With 14 Top-10 hits in the 90s, Tritt was a force to be reckoned with. However, there was no hit bigger to him and his career than “Anymore.” Released in 1991, it reached the top of the charts that same year.

Singing about the realization that he’s actually in love with the woman, “Anymore” is one of the more emotional songs Tritt ever recorded. The music video tells the story of a war veteran who is wheelchair bound following the war. Tritt’s character struggles to adapt to his new circumstances but has an even more difficult time telling the woman he loves how he really feels. The video is actually the first video in a three-part series of music videos that tells a more complete story of Tritt’s character.

“Anymore” is the song that means more to Tritt than any other song, partially because of the story one fan told him about the power of music.

A fan reached out to Tritt to share that her daughter was in an accident and had been in a coma for nine months. Her daughter was a big Travis Tritt fan, so they routinely played his music for her at her bedside. Every time “Anymore” was played, she would turn her head toward the music. One day, while “Anymore” was being played she came out of her coma.

Tritt said, “How much my music had to do with that, I don’t know, but I know that all the doctors were saying that music is a very good thing. It’s especially stimulating to someone who’s in that type of situation. Even in a comatose state they can respond to music like that. “It really was a wake-up call to make me realize that music is so powerful.” He eventually got the opportunity to meet that fan.
