Part of the commercial rise of rock tinged honky tonk in the early 1990s Tracy Lawrence was one of the decades most reliable country hitmakers. Born in Atlanta Texas in 1968 he grew up mostly in Foreman Arkansas where he soaked up traditional and outlaw country as well as Southern rock. He started performing in public when he was 15 and was a regular presence on the local honky tonk circuit by 17. After college he moved to Nashville in 1990 and worked day jobs while winning numerous talent shows. That led to a live radio performance and in 1991 a showcase gig that netted him a deal with Atlantic. In May 1991 just prior to the scheduled release of Lawrences debut album he was walking a girlfriend back to her hotel room when the two were mugged by several gun wielding attackers. Lawrence fought back to allow his companion time to escape and was shot four times two bullets only grazed him but one had to be surgically removed from his knee and the other remained deeply embedded in his pelvis. Fortunately he progressed rapidly through physical therapy and the album Sticks and Stones was released later in the year when Lawrence could return to promotional duties. Its lead single the title track went all the way to number one on the country charts helped out by all the publicity. More hits followed in the Top Tens Runnin Behind...Todays Lonely Fool and Somebody Paints the Wall and Lawrence was on his way to stardom. He arrived there with Alibis the platinum selling 1993 follow up that produced an astounding four chart-topping singles: the title track... Cant Break It to My Heart My Second Home and If the Good Die Young. In 1994 Lawrence contributed the Top Ten hit...Renegades Rebels and Rogues to the soundtrack of the movie version of Maverick and also released his third album I See It Now. Texas Tornado became his sixth number one hit and three more singles -- the title track...As Any Fool Can See and If the World Had a Front Porch -- all went to number two. In 1996 he returned with the proper follow up album Time Marches On. The title track was a huge hit topping the country charts and If You Love Me...Stars Over Texas and Is That a Tear... all went Top Five. His hit streak continued with 1997s The Coast Is Clear which contained two more Top Five singles in the title track and Better Man Better Off. Lawrence signed with Warner Brothers and debuted with an album titled simply Tracy Lawrence in 2001. Despite some good reviews it failed to halt his downward commercial momentum. Lawrence released the studio album Strong in 2004 and a greatest hits set through Dreamworks Nashville a year later. For the Love arrived in the early 2007 on Lawrences own label... Rocky Comfort Records. Two years later in 2009 the singer was crossing over to the Christian music market with the album The Rock and its lead single Up to Him.
