No. 78: Travis Tritt, ‘It’s a Great Day to Be Alive’ – Top 100 Country Songs
Travis Tritt‘s resurgence in the early 2000s came with four straight Top 10 singles, including ‘It’s a Great Day to Be Alive,’ song No. 78 on the Top 100 Country Songs list. Of all of Tritt’s hits, this song has best endured both time and new trends in country music. It’s a radio staple, even in 2012.
Every bad day can be turned around with a little sunshine, a car radio and songs like this. While the singer’s emotional ballads and rowdy country jams were certainly considered for the Top 100 Country Songs list, the pure innocence of this message was too good to ignore.
