Ever since she was a young girl, Travis Tritt’s eldest daughter, Tyler Reese Tritt, has shared her father’s love for music and performing. In a recent video posted to the female singer’s Instagram, it’s evident that all these years later, they have continued to support each other’s musical endeavors.
The clip finds the musically inclined family members sharing the stage as Tyler Reese fills in for the late Lari White who originally appeared on the duet version of “Helping Me Get Over You.” This classic Travis Tritt tune was released in 1997 as the fourth single from his album, The Restless Kind.
Father / Daughter Duet
Penned by Tritt and White with David Campbell, the song claimed the No. 18 spot on the Billboard Hot Country Singles & Tracks chart upon its release.
Tyler Reese adds her own flare, creating a stirring set of harmonies with her father as they sing, “Helping me get over you / One kiss at a time/ ‘Cause all the pain that we’ve been through / Still weighs so heavy on my mind / Getting pass the love we lost / That’s a lonely bridge to cross / So I did what I had to do / I had to find somebody new / Who’s helping me get over you.”
She paired the heartfelt video with a caption that read, “My favorite duet partner since I was a little girl ❤️”
How Long Has Tyler Reese Been Recording Music?
As she expressed in her post, the father-daughter duo have been bonding over music for years now. In fact, when Tyler Reese was just 14 years old, the “It’s A Great Day To Be Alive” singer gave her the chance to join him in the recording the duet “Sometimes Love Just Ain’t Enough” by Don Henley and Patty Smyth. This turned out to be a pivotal moment in the young singer’s career as she has gone on to pave her own path of success in the industry. The 25-year-old female artist is the only daughter among her two siblings, who were all raised by Travis Tritt and his wife, Theresa Nelson.
Earlier this year, she dropped her new single, “Texas Hold Him.” Once again, Travis Tritt was right by Tyler Reese’s side, lending support through a message shared to social media in which he thanked those in his fanbase who have listened to his daughter’s work.
“My daughter’s new single ‘Texas Hold Him’ has been out for a week! Thank you for all the streams, follows, and playlist features,” he wrote at the time. “If you haven’t yet, make sure you add the song to your favorite playlist!!”
“Texas Hold Him” was written by Jaida Dreyer and Melissa Peirce, and produced by Alex Kline. Throughout the mid-tempo tune, Tyler Reese puts her sharp vocals on full display as she reflects on a recent breakup and pleads for the strength to keep moving forward without looking back on the relationship.
“Texas, hold him and keep him under your sky/ ‘Cause I’m leaving and I’m needing all the help I can get tonight/ If he follows, won’t you slow him down?/ ‘Cause if I see his face I know I’ll turn around/ Don’t you let him go ’til I get to where I’m going/ Texas hold him, yeah,” she sings on the chorus.
This relatable tune came hot on the heels of Tyler Reese’s other recent release, “Porch Light,” which takes a more sultry, revengeful approach to her string of breakup anthems.
Throughout her aspiring career, Tyler Reese Tritt has performed a variety of headlining shows and opening gigs for renowned artists such as her father, Sheryl Crow, and Runaway June.
She is next slated to perform at the Stoney Creek Freedom Festival in Greenville, VA on September 7, 2024.
