Biography

Tracy Lawrence (born 27 January 1968) is an American country musician.

Tracy Lawrence was born in Atlanta, Texas, and raised in Foreman, Ark., Lawrence played in his first band at the age of 16. He attended Southern Arkansas University in Magnolia, where he was a member of Sigma Pi Fraternity. In 1990 Lawrence left Arkansas and went to Nashville.

Lawrence took jobs as an ironworker and in phone sales while he tried to break into the Nashville music scene. He began participating in talent shows and earned enough money to live on. In 1991 he had a gig at the Bluebird Cafe and met Wayne Edwards who became his manager.

With Edwards assistance Lawrence signed with Atlantic Records and released his first album “Sticks and Stones.” On 31 May 1991 Lawrence walked his former girlfriend to the door of her hotel room and was confronted by three armed men. The men robbed them and attempted to force Lawrence and his friend into her motel room. Lawrence resisted and was shot four times, allowing his friend to escape. Two of the wounds were major and necessitated surgery. One of the bullets remains imbedded in Lawrence’s pelvis.

Lawrence’s album shot up the charts to number one on the back of publicity from the shooting and spawned several Top 10 singles. Lawrence’s second album Alibis went Platinum and generated three straight Number One singles.

    Tracy Lawrence is real Country music. He's more real Country than anything today. He's good. Whoever said this is terrible music, doesn't know anything about anything.

    This looks like terrible music. Yes, I AM judging a book by it's cover. Let's go one step further, and call all you people super fuckwits for listening to it. Should be a lot of redneck fun. Oh wait, I got one more. You're fags. Redneck fags. That's quite a paradox. Kmean!
