Travis Tritt's 'Anymore' Helped A Fan Who Was In A Coma
Written by Tritt and Jill Colucci in Nashville, "Anymore" was the second single from his triple-platinum album It's All About To Change and his second No. 1 hit in the United States.
Years later, he heard a story that forever changed the way he would view the song. A mother reached out to Tritt after her daughter was in an accident and was in a coma for nine months. The woman said her daughter was a big fan of Tritt's prior to her accident, and that they would play his music for her in her hospital room. Every time they played his song "Anymore," she would turn her head toward the music.
"They were playing the song for her and all of a sudden she snapped out of a coma," said Tritt. "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] is especially stimulating to someone who's in that type of situation. Even in a comatose state they can respond to music like that."
Tritt eventually visited with the young woman in the hospital and said the whole story stunned him. "It really was a wake-up call to make me realize that music is so powerful, so much more powerful than those of us that create it really give credit for," he said. "When you play a part in writing a song that has that kind of an effect on people it tends to make it become more near and dear to your heart."
