Cowboys & Indians Magazine has the exclusive first look at the official video for Tracy’s new single “When The Cowboy’s Gone.”
ON THE SONG’S MEANING AND LESSONS: “I think the cowboy persona is what we’re missing most in society today. The honor and integrity seen in the John Wayne era. Someone to right the wrongs, help you out when your wagon wheel broke. … Just a stand-up person. A person you can count on.”
ON QUARANTINE AND HOW HE’S FARING ONLINE AT HOME IN TENNESSEE: “I miss all of it. The traveling, the stage, the people. Comradery of my band and crew. Just all of it. … I live out in the country where cell towers are lacking, so my internet — or lack of — makes it hard to do anything. I did do an acoustic performance last week, but that has been all I have really been able to do.”

The West Virginia Public Theatre will host the first run of Storming Heaven: The Musical June 6th-16th and tickets are now on-sale HERE!
Tracy and Flip Anderson combined creative forces to write all the music for the show, which is based off Denise Giardina’s 1988 novel.
“Our story is about coal mining in Appalachia at the beginning of the 20th century and the struggles of the coal miners and their families. It centers on Carrie Bishop, the coal mine nurse, and a love triangle between her and her husband the mine preacher, and a Union organizer. During our story, Carrie discovers how to claim her power as a woman in a world and time when women, like minorities and immigrants, were second-class citizens and were told what to do and how to behave. It is set against the backdrop of the 1920’s Coal Wars of West Virginia where the disenfranchised workers – upon whose backs American industry and this country were built – struggle to fight for their basic human rights by unionizing. It culminates in the Battle of Blair Mountain between striking miners and mine owners, when President Warren G. Harding sent the National Guard to kill the Union’s efforts. It was the largest civil insurrection since the Civil War, and that lost battle successfully stopped United Mine Workers from fully forming for another three decades.”

Tracy is being recognized by The Academy of Country Music for his exemplary work on the weekly show “Honky Tonkin’ with Tracy Lawrence” with his second nomination for “National On-Air Personality of the Year.”
“I am so honored by this nomination. When I first started hosting ‘Honky Tonkin’’ I really just wanted it to be something that all of my friends would feel comfortable being a part of, like having a conversation backstage or on the tour bus. I wanted to give fans an inside look at the artists who created the music of the 90’s, which to me, is the best era of country music, not just because I was a part of it, but because so many great songs and entertainers came out of that time period,” says Tracy.
Produced by Patrick Thomas of Silverfish Media and distributed by Compass Media, “Honky Tonkin” is a bit different from other syndicated shows that focus on current trends in country music. The audience listens in to fun, thoughtful, and intimate conversations between Tracy and his friends and contemporaries from the late 80s, 90s, and the early 2000s, as they discuss what many consider the most celebrated time for country music. Lawrence also recently began a Podcast version of the show called “Honky Tonkin’ With Tracy Lawrence – The Interviews” which can be heard HERE.
“We just started our fifth year of Honky Tonkin’ and I am so proud of how great this show sounds each week. Sure, the music is awesome, but Tracy is an amazing host. He loves country music and he just wants to create an entertaining show and have a lot of fun,” says Patrick Thomas, Producer/President, Silverfish Media.

For 13 consecutive years, Tracy has given back with his MISSION:POSSIBLE Turkey Fry & Concert, and 2018 was no exception. Lawrence was joined by Nashville music, sports and entertainment celebrities and a host of volunteers, who gathered in the parking lot of Nashville Rescue Mission on Tuesday November 20th to fry over 500 turkeys for the homeless of Middle Tennessee.
The day of cooking, preparing and delivering meals was followed by the Turkey Fry Concert that evening at The Wildhorse Saloon. The show, hosted by WSM-AM Radio/Grand Ole Opry® host Bill Cody, featured guests including EMI recording artist Eric Paslay, BMG/Chrysalis singer/songwriter Doug McCormick, Outlaw Country duo Halfway To Hazard, newcomer Bristyn Camp, and a very special surprise performance by Phil Vassar. Lawrence finished the evening with a stellar headline performance of some of his iconic hits and his new Christmas song, “Frozen In Time,” which is the title track of his new holiday album, for which a portion of the sales proceeds benefit MISSION:POSSIBLE.
“I’m so thankful to everyone who donated, volunteered or just helped spread the word about MISSION:POSSIBLE,” said Lawrence. Helping the homeless and hungry during the holiday season is very important, but my goal with MISSON:POSSIBLE is to assist with these needs year round.”
“This year’s Turkey Fry was another great success,” said Glenn Cranfield, president and CEO of Nashville Rescue Mission. “It’s a real blessing to be able to serve those in need a traditional Thanksgiving meal and this event goes a long way in making that possible. We are so grateful for the support we receive from Tracy, the sponsors, the volunteers, and everyone involved.”
As in the past, this event could not have been a success without the help and generosity of some wonderful sponsors including ABEC, Blue Rhino, Cargill, Civic Engineering, DCR, King Cooler Outdoor Cooking Products by Metal Fusion, LHC Group, LouAna Oils, W&W Logistics, Nelson Mazda, Renasant Bank, Richards & Southern, Southern Lawn & Equipment, Van Meter Insurance, Walmart, Wildhorse Saloon and WME.
The MISSON: POSSIBLE blueprint is spreading to other cities. The Dallas Life Mission celebrated their third turkey fry with tremendous growth this year. See new coverage of their event HERE. Having more than 100 volunteers and many sponsors to assist, over the last three years Dallas Life fried over 350 turkeys to serve over 2,000 meals for Thanksgiving and gave turkeys to police officers, firefighters and their families. As the largest homeless recovery center in North Texas, Dallas Life was proud to care for so many by taking part in their third annual MISSION:POSSIBLE Turkey Fry. “We are so grateful to the sponsors and volunteers who showed they care for the needy by taking part today! This is how we can give a hand up and not a hand out.” -Bob Sweeney, Executive Director, Dallas Life. To make a donation to Dallas Life click HERE.
Louisville Rescue Mission held their second event and reported frying over 112 turkeys, since beginning their event two years ago, providing hundreds of meals for the underserved in their community. Lawrence, who was in the market for a concert stop joined Executive Director Corey Bledsoe on Louisville’s WHAS-TV to talk about the event. See coverage HERE.
“Our second annual Mission: Possible Turkey Fry was a huge success. We fried almost twice as many turkeys this year and expect to continue along that trajectory. It’s already becoming a true community event. From the donors to volunteers to our ministry partners who helped distribute turkeys, we served hundreds of families in the Louisville area. Mission: Possible is helping us not only provide for the tangible needs of the homeless, but raise awareness about the spiritual, psychological, and relational needs that exist longer after the holidays. Louisville is really catching on. We’re looking forward to next year!” said Cory Bledsoe, Executive Director of Re:Center Ministries. Donations for Re:Center can be made HERE.
The MISSION:POSSIBLE Turkey Fry and Concert, has raised over $536,350.00 for Nashville’s homeless and hungry, with this year’s 13th annual event bringing in over $153,350.00 alone. MISSION:POSSIBLE is poised to make an even larger impact in the future, as the 501 ( C ) (3) organization expands into more markets across the country with Louisville and Dallas raising in over $25,105.00 during their 2018 events, bringing the national total to $561,455.00.

When Tracy was planning his latest album Good Ole Days, which pairs some of his most iconic hits with some of today’s biggest new stars, he knew that he also had to capture his vision in a collection of memories in the form of a book. He culled through a mountain of memorabilia to compile an amazing and beautifully bound book of the same name which documents his career over the past twenty years.
Tracy felt it was only fitting to donate the very first copy to The Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum. He recently visited with Carolyn Tate, Senior VP of Museum Services at the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum, and donated the first bound volume to the museum’s ever-growing collection of over 2.5 million artifacts.

Tracy Lawrence has set November 10, 2017 as the release date for one of the most ambitious and significant albums of his career. GOOD OLE DAYS celebrates the country legend’s indelible mark on country traditionalism with an album of 11 duets pairing a selection of his most iconic hits with some of Country and Rock’s contemporary superstars and newcomers. See some behind the scenes footage HERE.
“There’s such a hunger out there for the music from my era – I hear that from so many people, so I felt like this was a good time to kind of blend the old and the new,” said Tracy. “My first commitment was from my buddy Tim McGraw, who chose to sing ‘Time Marches On,’ on the new record.”
The collaborative collection also includes guest appearances by Jason Aldean, Big & Rich, Luke Bryan, Luke Combs, Easton Corbin, Dustin Lynch, Tim McGraw, Justin Moore, Kellie Pickler and Chris Young. 3 Doors Down leader Brad Arnold makes his Country music debut on the title track “Good Ole Days,” which is the second of the two original songs.
When asked about which of his songs is his all-time favorite, Tracy admits that choosing one is a lot like trying to single out a favorite child, it’s just not something that’s easy to do.
However, he does mention that “Sticks and Stones” comes to mind. “I’ve got favorite songs for different reasons, but none of them would have happened without the first one, so “Sticks and Stones” is very special.”
The collection in its entirety is equally special, and Lawrence is humbled by the excitement that his peers brought to the studio with their eagerness to keep each track as pure as the day it was first recorded, with only minor exceptions and a few added new nuances. Lawrence is excited to offer the first instant grat track “Can’t Break It to My Heart,” the duet with country superstar Jason Aldean, as part of the album preorder which is available today HERE.
Craig Morgan lends his vocals and heartfelt raw emotion on “Finally Home,” one of the two new tracks and an ode to U.S. military members celebrating their enduring service to our country. Tracy and Craig debuted the song together in a performance on the hallowed stage of The Grand Ole Opry® on August 15.
A portion of the proceeds from “Finally Home” will be donated to Operation FINALLY HOME, a national, non-profit organization providing mortgage-free, custom-built homes to wounded, ill and injured veterans or widows of the fallen, thanks to their unique network of experienced builders, suppliers, and supporters dedicated to honoring heroes with homes.
Whether it is celebrating his iconic hits with fresh new tracks or writing material for his next studio record, Lawrence knows if he stopped today he’d already have cemented his place in the pantheon of country-music greats.
“To realize that I’m older now and being looked at by younger kids in the same light as I looked at guys like Strait and Haggard, it’s very flattering,” he notes. “To know that I’ve made music that’s had that kind of impact on people, well, it’s pretty cool.”

In the last three years alone, Tracy Lawrence has raised $120,000 for Nashville Rescue Mission with his annual Mission: Possible Turkey Fry. But for the country music star and nationally syndicated radio personality, that’s only the beginning. For the second year, Lawrence will double down on his 10-year-old Thanksgiving season tradition by hosting a star-studded benefit concert for the Mission, which aids the city’s hungry and homeless.
His second annual Tracy Lawrence Mission: Possible Charity Concert will take place Tuesday, November 22 at Nashville’s Wildhorse Saloon. It will feature performances from Lawrence and his country-star pals Big & Rich, Jerrod Niemann, Ben Rue and returning guests Halfway to Hazard, all donating their time and talent to the cause. Tickets go on sale Wednesday, October 19 at 11:00 a.m. and can be purchased at www.wildhorsesaloon.com. Doors open at 6:00 p.m.
Concert sponsorships are still available. For more information on sponsoring the event, please contact:[email protected]
Last year’s sold-out concert raised $63,000 for Nashville Rescue Mission. To accommodate many more fans this year, Lawrence selected the recently renovated Wildhorse Saloon as the show’s new venue.
The Turkey Fry itself is also growing this year. In conjunction with the Association of Gospel Rescue Missions, rescue missions in Dallas, Louisville, Ky. and Asheville, N.C. are duplicating Lawrence’s popular event the week of Thanksgiving to raise awareness and serve their own local homeless communities. This year’s local Turkey Fry will be heldNovember 22 at Nashville Rescue Mission.
Earlier this year the Middle Tennessee Chapter of the Association of Fundraising Professionals honored Lawrence as its Philanthropist of the Year specifically for his work on behalf of Nashville Rescue Mission, recognizing him for making a large and positive contribution to the community. Funds raised by the singer at his annual event have helped provide more than 75,000 meals to those in need, and more than 5,000 turkeys have been fried and donated to the Mission.
The Turkey Fry is only part of Lawrence’s personal mission to help those in need. Last month, his Louisiana Flood Aid concert in Baton Rouge raised more than $15,000 for Samaritan’s Purse, a charity helping victims of recent flooding in the state. The money raised is being used to build and restore homes for families affected by the high waters.
Lawrence’s philanthropic efforts also include a partnership with Exclusive Genetics’ Bucking Bull Games that benefits St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. The singer’s bull, named Honky Tonkin’ after his radio show, recently won $6,000, all earmarked for the hospital and will go on to raise more funds for the organization at the finals in Las Vegas October 31-November 4.
“Thanksgiving is such a special time of year for me and my family. A time to share and be thankful for all that God has blessed us with,” said Lawrence. “It’s also a very humbling time, knowing how much suffering and pain is going on in the world. It makes me treasure the opportunity that myself, my friends and my family have to give back to our community through the Nashville Rescue Mission. I will continue to be overwhelmed by the support and love that comes out to volunteer and donate to their fellow man during this week.”

As part of the festivities surrounding the Battle at Bristol the CMA songwriter’s series made a stop in Bristol Thursday night. The lineup featured Tracy Lawrence along with hit songwriters Barry Dean and Luke Laird. It was held at the Birthplace of Country Music Museum in Bristol, which is an affiliate of the Smithsonian.
News 2 caught up with Lawrence beforehand.
“I’ve played some stuff out at the Bristol Speedway before but I’ve never really played anywhere here in Bristol proper so it’s a pretty unique experience and I’ve learned a lot about the Bristol community and how this is the birthplace of country music which I was not aware of,” Lawrence said.
The CMA songwriter’s series serves as a kickoff of sorts for this year’s 50th CMA awards.

“Growing up for me, having a good meal commemorating the Thanksgiving holiday meant more than just satisfying your appetite,” Lawrence said. “It signified a time to reflect, count our blessings and share what we’re thankful for, so to have an opportunity to feed those in our area while helping them feel that sense of pride for feeding their families, well there’s no better feeling. Over the years this event has grown, and every year I am even more thankful to those who come together to make this such a success.”

As one of the most recognizable voices in country music history, it’s only appropriate that a man whose career was launched on a radio show, “Live at Libby’s,” returns to the studio for his own show. Tracy Lawrence is bringing his new syndicated radio show, Honky Tonkin’ with Tracy Lawrence, to the “Air Castle of the South.”
Honky Tonkin’ with Tracy Lawrence debuts at noon CDT Sunday, August 16 on Nashville’s legendary traditional country music outlet, WSM-AM.

Guests of the show have previously included Reba McEntire, John Anderson, and more.
“I’m so excited about WSM picking up my show,” Lawrence said. “It is such a huge thing for the show to be heard not only in Nashville but through all of our affiliates around the country. I started hosting ‘Honky Tonkin’’ in January with the desire to keep more of the traditional country sound alive with an emphasis on honky-tonk music. I feel that there is such a huge demand from the fans for this [type of programming], and with WSM picking up the show, it really validates that point. Let’s keep it country.”
The Country Music Association and Academy of Country Music award-winning artist has imprinted an indelible mark on the genre with nearly two dozen hits (including “Sticks and Stones,” “Alibis,” “Texas Tornado,” “Time Marches On,” “Paint Me A Birmingham,” and “Find Out Who Your Friends Are”), 13 million albums sold and many memorable shows, a legacy he shares through nearly 100 live appearances every year. Now, Lawrence brings a lifetime of stories and experiences to the radio.
“Tracy Lawrence is one of the core artists of our format who can genuinely reach out to his fans and constantly builds an audience that is loyal and true to him,” noted Dean Warfield, program director for 650 AM WSM.
Honky Tonkin’ with Tracy Lawrence has been off to a fast start, securing play at more than 30 stations in its first six months of existence. Lawrence is on the road this summer making solo and festival appearances.
