Tracy Lawrence Quote:

"My music is often a snapshot glimpse into my heart and head. You can't separate Tracy Lawrence the person from Tracy Lawrence the music. It's all part of my fiber. A part of who I am. It's the paths I've crossed, the pleasures and the pains of life's experiences, my life's little gems. Those are the elements that have lead to my personal and musical identity."
