Only a couple of things make Travis Tritt nervous, but being host of VH-1's weekly "Country Countdown" show Saturday afternoons isn't one of them."How could you turn down an opportunity to go into people's homes week after week," he says, "people who probably don't ordinarily listen to or watch country music?"How, indeed, particularly when your prospective boss sweetens the pot by revamping your show. With Mr. Tritt in place, "Country Countdown" will do more than introduce the week's hottest videos.

Country music prides itself on being down-home entertainment, full of family values and wholesome performers. But the Chesapeake Country Music Festival, which runs Saturday and Sunday at the Glenn L.

Crisfield Organizers of the Tangier Sound Country Music Festival in Crisfield, as well as the handful of die-hard music fans who had waited outside the gates since as early as 4:30 a.m. to stake out the best seats, heaved a collective sigh of relief Saturday morning when the sun peaked through the overcast and mildly threatening skies.As it turned out, they needn't have worried. The serendipitous weather conditions -- partly sunny skies and a delightful breeze blowing in off Tangier Sound -- combined with good planning, a solid lineup of musical talent and an exceedingly well-mannered crowd of 18,000 to make for a pleasant day of country music.

"Mamas, don't let your babies grow up to be cowboys," a country song warned, but it was misdirected. Mamas, it's your yuppies who want to be cowboys (and girls.)With a surge of young adult listeners, country music is at a peak of popularity. In the Baltimore market, country station WPOC has perched at or near the top of the ratings for the past couple of years. In fact, a record 2,600 stations in the U.S. now broadcast country music -- 1,000 more than the number of stations playing pop music.

T-R-O-U-B-L-ETravis Tritt (Warner Bros. 45048)Garth Brooks may represent the commercial future of country music, but if you want to hear where the music itself is going, listen to Travis Tritt's new album, "T-R-O-U-B-L-E." Like many of the genre's younger generation, Tritt's roots include a lot of Southern rock, something that comes through loud and clear on tunes like the boogie-driven "Blue Collar Man" or his searing cover of Buddy Guy's "Leave My Girl Alone." But Tritt also has a sentimental side, and it's his ability to seem as believable singing sad songs like "Can I Trust You With My Heart" as when he's rocking out that makes "T-R-O-U-B-L-E" a winner no matter how you spell it.KEEP IT GOIN' ONHi-Five (Jive 41474)

LAST OF THE INDEPENDENTSPretenders (Sire 45572) There's no denying that it's Chrissie Hynde's sensibility that shapes the musical identity of the Pretenders. But it's a mistake to assume simply because Hynde calls the shots that the Pretenders is some kind of solo project. Those may be her songs, but what you hear on "Last of the Independents" is the sound of a band at work, from the beautifully blurred textures of "Hollywood Perfume" to the razor-edged groove of "Money Talk." Granted, Hynde's voice counts for a lot -- it's hard to imagine another singer concocting the perfect cocktail of wit and rage for "I'm a Mother," much less offering such a strikingly unsentimental rendering of Dylan's "Forever Young" -- but without the band's handy distillation of rock tradition and punk moxie, it would be hard to imagine her as successfully navigating the sexual politics of "977" or the retro exuberance of "Rebel Rock."

Even by the genteel standards of country singers, Travis Tritt seems a remarkably nice guy. He's quiet, polite, good-humored and well-spoken, precisely the sort who would never raise a fuss or cause a ruckus.Yet somehow, Tritt keeps ending up in trouble anyway. Or, in the case of his current single, "T.R.O.U.B.L.E."This wouldn't seem to be a particularly provocative piece of work. As Tritt admits, "It doesn't have a tremendous statement to it, but it's a lot of fun, up-tempo and very contemporary for country music these days."

"It's a beautiful day," exults Buddy Guy. He's sitting in a hotel room in South Kingstown, Rhode Island, and can't get over how nice it is outside. "This is the first sunshine day I think I've seen since I've been out on tour," he explains over the p"But it's beautiful here today. I've got my window open and it feels like the spring out there -- right around 60 degrees. You can't beat that with a hammer and nail."Seeing as the bluesman's latest album is called "Feels Like Rain," you might think he'd be happier with rainy weather.
