Album Creator: Tracy Lawrence

A pretty significant country star in the 1990’s, Tracy Lawrence has a deep southern drawl and primarily sang about country’s staples, drinking and cheating.  I think one of the reasons I like him is because he stays away from political stuff and how awesome being a southern redneck is. In other words, he’s the opposite of Toby Keith.

He has three albums that almost made the cut, but each one has at least two songs I strongly dislike, so it wasn’t going to happen. His most famous album is probably I See It Now. With each song released from the album he did a music video where he leapt in and out of different scenarios a la Sam Beckett in Quantum Leap.

Anyway, using my rule that only fifteen songs can make (which somehow seemed tougher than when I did it with Johnny Cash), here’s a hypothetically awesome album by Tracy Lawrence. Most of these are on his greatest hits albums, though there’s a few that either didn’t chart well or were never released.

1. Renegades, Rebels, and Rogues
2. Runnin’ Behind
3. Sticks and Stones
4. Somebody Paints the Wall
5. I Threw the Rest Away
6. Can’t Break it to My Heart
7. Alibis
8. My Second Home
9. As Any Fool Can See
10. Is That a Tear
11. Time Marches On
12. From What We Give
13. How A Cowgirl Says Goodbye
14. Livin’ in Black and White
15. If The Good Die Young

Runnin’ Behind holds a special place for me, being one of the songs that got me hooked on country music.
