AccuRadio Song Of The Day-Tracy Lawrence

Artist:Tracy Lawrence
Song:Time Marches On
Album:The Very Best Of Tracy Lawrence

Country singer Tracy Lawrence has had a total of nine number one country music hits mostly in the 90s. Time Marches On topped the charts for three weeks in 1996 so it's probably his biggest hit. His days as a country music star are probably over but he currently records on his own label. He was born Jan. 27, 1968 in Atlanta, TX and grew up in Foreman , AR. He showed an interest in music at an early age. While attending Southern Arkansas University in 1990, he decided to move to Nashville. While working day jobs, Lawrence performed in Nashville clubs at night and signed with Atlantic Records in 1991. His producer was Giant Records president James Stroud. Before Lawrence's 1991 debut CD Sticks and Stones was released, he was shot four times during an armed robbery in his girlfriend's hotel room. After his recovery, the CD was released and the first single Sticks and Stones was his first country music hit. Then he had five number one hits from his 1993 album Alibis. Time Marches On was the second single from the 1996 CD Time Marches On. By this time, Lawrence was producing with long time partner Flip Anderson and Brooks & Dunn producer Don Cook. Time Marches On topped the Country Singles chart for three weeks and the album was certified Platinum. The song was written by Country Music Hall of Fame member Bobby Braddock. He started out in the 60s as Marty Robbins' pianist and he wrote the George Jones hit He Stopped Loving Her Today. More recently, Braddock has produced Blake Shelton. Lawrence continued to chart through the 90s but he was starting to fade. When Atlantic Nashville was closed in 2000, Lawrence was moved to Warner Bros. He left for DreamWorks in for the 2004 album Strong and then he recorded one album for Mercury. Lawrence started his own label Rocky Comfort Records in 2006. He topped the country charts in 2007 with Find Out Who Your Friends Are. His latest CD Headlights, Taillights and Radios was released in Aug. 2013. You can get all of his 90s hits on this Rhino comp.
