Country music legend, Tracy Lawrence, releases his first original studio album in six years with the prideful, Made In America, available on all streaming and download services today, Friday, August 16th. The country star has been a driving force in the music industry for over 25 years and is a mainstay with traditional and contemporary country fans alike with Made In America certainly keeping pace.
Made In America pays homage to the tried and true examples of what make the hard-working men and women of America stand tall and proud. The album harkens back to the authentic sound of country music with Lawrence’s mixture of rock and blues, and by penning 8 of the 12 tracks himself, this album is one of his most relatable to date.
“This is my most personal album I’ve ever made. It’s something I’m very proud of and celebrates the American worker and everything that’s good about our country,” says Lawrence. He continues, “I co-wrote a number of the songs, pouring my heart and soul in each of them. I feel it will resonate with my fans and country music lovers across this nation.”
