Travis Tritt Releases New Single, Longing For The Old Days When You Could “Smoke in a Bar”

You can hear Dave Cobb working his magic with the new Travis Tritt single, and it’s a thing of beauty.

Tritt just released his new single, “Smoke in a Bar,” where he longs for the old days, the simpler times, and “when the world turned slower.”

One of the few songs Travis didn’t have a hand in cowriting (Jeremy Bussey, Derek George, Tim Montana) on his upcoming album, Set In Stone, this one is going to hit home for plenty of folks given the crazy times we’ve all endured as of late.

Trucks took a beating
The working man too
You could turn on the six o’ clock
And get the whole truth
A seat belt was a backup
For Mama’s right arm
When the world turned slower
And you could smoke in a bar

My, oh my!
How times have changed
But man sometimes I miss them old days
They say we’ve come a long way
But I’d say it’s a little bit too far
From when the world turned slower
And you could smoke in a bar

Set In Stone will be Tritt’s first album in over a decade, and if the first couple tracks and the songwriters on this project are any indication, expect something special that’s long overdue.
