Personalities | Tracy Lawrence | New Country & The Neo-Traditionalists

(Vocals, songwriter, b. 1968)

Born in Texas and raised in Arkansas, Lawrence’s early influences included Merle Haggard, Keith Whitley and George Strait. Moving to Nashville in 1990, he signed with Atlantic, who released his platinum debut album, Sticks And Stones (1991), which included four Top 10 singles, including the chart-topping title track. 1993’s Alibis placed his career and personal life at its most stable level, but despite label changes (when Atlantic closed its Nashville office) his brand of honky-tonk music has retained an audience.
