Tracy Lawrence brought the house down Saturday night (6/8) at Ascend Amphitheater with his star-studded, sold-out CMA Fest show “Tracy Lawrence and Friends.” The night, which sold out within a few hours of onsale, saw performances and collaborations by Lawrence, Riley Green, Chris Young, Maddie & Tae, Priscilla Block, RaeLynn, Charles Esten, opener Kasey Tyndall and surprise guests Randy Houser and Lee Greenwood.

Houser surprised Lawrence midway through the show with a giant plaque commemorating one billion career streams, driven by some of his biggest hits including “Paint Me A Birmingham,” “Time Marches On,” “Find Out Who Your Friends Are,” “Sticks and Stones” and more. The massive achievement and sold-out show comes just one day after the release of his new EP Out Here In It, his first body of work in three years. The six-track collection features cuts from some of Nashville’s hottest songwriters including Rodney Clawson, Devin Dawson, Jacob Durrett, Wyatt McCubbin, Lee Thomas Miller, Ernest Keith Smith and more. With 13M albums sold and 18 No.1 singles to his name, Lawrence proves he still has a lot of gas left in the tank.
