When it comes to the glory days of ’90s country, you have your George Strait, your Alan Jackson, your Reba… all up there inarguably at the top of the totem pole, but Travis Tritt might just be up there as well. He’s definitely in my top 10, maybe even my top 5. I’d have to think about it more…
“I’m Gonna Be Somebody,” “It’s A Great Day To Be Alive,” “T-R-O-U-B-L-E,” “Foolish Pride,” that great collab with the Eagles… the list goes on and on. But his 1991 hit, “Here’s A Quarter (Call Someone Who Cares),” has to be the #1 in my book.
It’s been covered by just about anybody who’s worth a damn in country music, and now, an old video of Koe Wetzel has surfaced as well.
Performing at the Brass Hall in Marble Falls, Texas, with a table full of empty Miller Lite bottles (great choice), watch as Koe gets the crowd on their feet with a knockout acoustic version of the Travis Tritt classic.
On the Whiskey Riff Raff podcast, Koe said he was going to record a real deal country record for his mom on his 30th birthday, and if this performance is any indication, I think we’re gonna be in for something pretty cool.
And of course, the original.
Whiskey Riff is the most entertaining country site…ever.
