The Multi-platinum CMA and ACM award winning recording artist has helped shape the sound of Country music for two decades, recently celebrating twenty-years in music. Few country artists have ever known the kind of success that Tracy Lawrence has earned and the influence his iconic voice has contributed to the Country music genre.
His music has inspired a whole new generation of entertainers and fans. Jason Aldean and Luke Bryan frequently pay tribute to the singer live in concert by playing his double-platinum hits like “Time Marches On” and Alibis.” Songs that help make Lawrence among one of the most played artists on radio.
Lawrence has set out to embark on the next chapter of his music career with his highly anticipated forthcoming studio album Headlights, Taillights And Radios to be released August 2013. The first single, “Stop Drop And Roll” written by hit songwriters Casey Beathard who penned Lawrence’s CMA and ACM award winning hit “Find Out Who Your Friends Are” and Brandon Kinney, marks the singers first studio album in five years.
Headlights, Taillights And Radios is not just another release for Lawrence, it’s a testament to how his music continues to evolve and engage all generations of Country music fans. The 11-song collection features some of his most progressive music to date.
Reflecting on the creative process when recording Headlights, Taillights And Radios Lawrence knew that he needed to push the envelope and creativity to a new level. “When recording the new album it was a very different process than I had ever done before,” said Lawrence. “We ended up recording the album in two parts, that’s just how it worked out. I started recording in the direction to make a more traditional County record. But as time progressed, I needed to explore and challenge myself musically. I wanted to go deeper and try a more edgy and progressive sound that reflected where I was going next. The combination really worked well for me and I think it will appeal to many different types of County music fans.” The album title Headlights, Taillights And Radios carries a signature meaning for the artist. “Headlights” looking to the future; “Taillights” celebrating the past; and “Radios” a tribute to his success on radio.
Headlights, Taillights And Radios gives us a new Tracy Lawrence. One that is sure to inspire and ignite a whole new generation of Country music.
He relocated to Nashville, Tennessee in January of 2012 and now calls Nashville home with his wife, Brittany, and their one year old daughter, Ravenna, where they live on a quiet two acres of land on the outskirts of town.
To hear Austin sing could be equated to being taken to church due to his songs being laced with dynamic soaring melodies, introspective life-lived lyrics. Stylistically his music makes you long for a simpler time when the world moved a little slower and things felt a bit more pure.
Austin is a man made for the stage. Whether he’s sitting on a bar stool in the Georgia Theatre in Athens, Georgia performing for 1,000 people by himself or back in the Northwest playing with a full band. His shows are captivating, inspiring and leave those that know him feeling like they are witnessing one of the true under-the-radar talents. And those that are hearing him for the first time are struck by the thought of “who the hell is this guy”?
His single “Ride Away” was released in March 2018 & reached 1 million streams on Spotify in 3 months & Rolling Stone Country named him one of their “10 Artists You Need To Know” in January 2018 saying “he sounds like a gnarly, but vulnerable, countryblues singer with the introspective songwriting chops Nashville thankfully continues to reward. Austin’s next single “Home For The Summer is set to come out on
July 13, 2018.
