According to the press release, Creative’s Reservoir Executive Vice President John Ozier said, “Travis was a mainstay of the ’90s country movement, and his influence continues to impact the genre and its resurgence in music. charts today. The Reservoir team are so happy to support both their publishing and master recordings, and to build on our base of country catalog classics with more of the genre’s greatest songs.
