A year ago, Travis Tritt was a Hank Williams Jr. soundalike with a passel of Southern rock ditties and a debut launched by Kenny Rogers’ manager, Ken Kragen. Today, It’s All About to Change, an appropriately titled follow-up signals, Tritt is poised on the brink of well-deserved stardom. The songs here — Tritt wrote 7 of the 10 — are so obviously headed for gold that the album practically glows, from the exquisite redneck cheek of ”Here’s a Quarter (Call Someone Who Cares),” in which the singer rebuffs his unfaithful love, to the fast-paced honker ”Bible Belt,” a minister’s passion play of a different kind. Seldom does a second album brim with such authority and confidence, but then it’s not all that often that a new artist writes with such inventiveness and phrases with the grizzled voice of experience: Even the backup musicians sound thrilled to be here. Looks like we’ll have to make room for Tritt’s name on the final ballot at awards time. A+
