There has been an apparent resurgence in more traditional-sounding country and artists since the beginning of 2019. The country singer Tracy Lawrence is joining Brooks & Dunn, Reba McEntire, and George Strait in reviving the traditional country sound. That is surely a piece of good news to all fans of the genre who long to listen to something they used to love. Recently, the three notable artists have released their new records which is a clear indication of their return to their country roots. Now, Lawrence is about to drop his own album and we are expecting a lot from it especially that he initially described the album as ‘very country.’
The ‘Very Country’ Album, Made in America
Lawrence’s upcoming project Made in America is coming out in four months’ time, on August 16 to be exact. There are no further details about the album yet. However, the singer hinted that it’s going to be loved by fans of traditional-sounding country music. At the Red Carpet of the recently held ACM Awards, the ‘90s country star briefly spoke of his upcoming album. The statement was brief but compelling enough for us to make sure not to miss his new record.
“This album is very country. [There’s a] little rock, little blues-rock stuff at the end of it, but there’s some amazing tracks on this album. I think it’s one of the best albums that I have made in a long time.”
Made in America is comprised of twelve tracks, eight of them were written by Tracy Lawrence. With Lawrence’s enticing description of the new record, we highly expect it to be dominating the country music charts in the future just like those of Brooks & Dunn’s, McEntire’s, and Strait’s. More details on the new album will be released as soon as they become available.
Tracy Lawrence: On Returning to Country Roots
While most music enthusiasts are getting obsessed with Lil Nas X and the continuously eroding genre and country music, it’s fascinating that there are still some country artists who are never giving up on their roots and do their best to keep the traditional country sound alive. Lawrence, who scored seven No. 1 on the charts in the 2000s, hopes that this return to the traditional-sounding country songs would continue and that more artists of the genre will be able to reconnect with their long-time fans. Among the songs that Lawrence popularized were “Stick and Stones,” “If the Good Die Young,” Texas Tornado,” and “Time Marches On.”
