Tracy Lawrence is one of the premiere voices of his generation. A mature, sensitive and intelligent singer who strives to push the limits to be the best that he can be, as an artist and as a person, Tracy's dedication to honesty and respect for country music and its heritage have enabled him to build one of the most esteemed careers in recent country music history.

An integral player in country music tradition, Tracy is among the most successful and relevant country singers in the business. His voice is his instrument; his message and accomplishments are distinctively clear.

Tracy stepped onto the stage and into the spotlight in 1991. Over the course of his career, he's scored 17 No. 1 country singles including his signature song, "Sticks and Stones," the all-time fan favorites "Time Marches On," "If The Good Die Young" and "Alibis," and his most recent, "Find Out Who Your Friends Are."

Throughout the 1990s, Tracy Lawrence was among the most-played artists in all genres. His 1991 introductory CD, Sticks And Stones, launched him to the forefront as the decade's most formidable young talent. Boasting four Top 10 country hits, the album was certified platinum.

His 1993 sophomore album, Alibis, went double-platinum, spawning four No. 1 smashes--the title cut, "Can't Break It To My Heart," "My Second Home" and "If The Good Die Young." He followed with the platinum-selling CD, 1994's I See It Now, which featured his trademarked songs "If The World Had A Front Porch" and "Texas Tornado." Tracy secured his stature as an award-winning country music hitmaker with "Time Marches On," which led the 1996 album, by the same name, to double-platinum status. The summit of the 10-year run was Tracy's Lessons Learned and the title cut went to No. 3 on the charts.

In the new millennium, with a front porch perspective, "Paint Me a Birmingham" from 2003's Strong was a Top 10, and with a little help from his friends Tim McGraw and Kenny Chesney, he hit a home run No. 1 with "Find Out Who Your Friends Are" from the 2006 CD For The Love.

Today, Tracy Lawrence is set to speak his voice with his latest collection of musical stories entitled The Rock. A powerful, emotional overview of spiritual consciousness, The Rock takes stock in life's blessings and the need to be more grateful, recognizes that life is hard, and not always good, but through it all, the strength of faith and hope reign triumphant.

His motivation and objective to record this inspirational compilation is pure and simple; he's a man of his word.

"My mom and dad have been coaxing me for years to record an inspirational country CD. I promised them I would, but kept pushing it off because it just didn't 'feel' like the right time. I had to grow, personally and artistically to get here."
