Camille from Toronto, OhTravis Tritt is one of the underrated county singers from the 1990s. I’m not sure why that is. Perhaps it’s because he comes across as the guy next door who makes strumming a guitar and singing look so effortless. I love all of his hits from this time period, and “Anymore” is exceptional. His voice is steady and even throughout most of the song as he reveals feelings of love he can no longer pretend to have for a woman in his life. Towards the end, he kicks in the passion, declaring, “And I’m tired of pretending I don’t LOVE you anymore!” Well, it makes the whole song. You wait to hear that heartfelt declaration of love. Oh, and the video adds one more layer of amazing to the lo song.
Stephens Stills played timbales on the Bee Gees hit, "You Should Be Dancing." He was in the next door studio laying down a Crosby, Stills and Nash album and could hear Saturday Night Fever being recorded. Stills recognized its potential to be a monster hit and he wanted to contribute.
"Abracadabra" was inspired by Diana Ross and The Supremes. Steve Miller first met the girl group when they performed together on NBC's Hullabaloo in 1966, and he wrote the lyrics after spotting Diana Ross skiing in the mountains years later.
