Rediscovering Tracy Lawrence

There are so many artists and songs I’ve been a fan of over the years, that it’s inevitable I forget about a song or album that at one time I absolutely loved. Especially when you’re constantly adding to your music collection. So, I always like reading the What’cha listening to? thread on The 9513’s forum. Mostly because somebody will almost always remind me about a forgotten gem. The good folks at Country Universe are also great at pointing out bygone treasures from the past. Don’t miss their Starter Kits this month since they’re featuring artists from the 1990s – my favorite decade of country music.
Last night I spent the evening here at my desk catching up on emails and doing some writing. I had my media player on random when Tracy Lawrence’s ‘Today’s Lonely Fool’ came on. I immediately stopped and listened because I always loved that song. Tracy gives this tale of a remorseful man a powerful vocal and adds plenty of emotion. I believe he’s sorry. So after hearing that, I went to my collection of Tracy Lawrence songs and listened to ‘Time Marches On’, ‘Alibies’ , and my personal favorite, ‘Texas Tornado’. I always preferred Tracy Lawrence as a ballad singer.
Random playlists have lead me to rediscover, or at least revisit, several artists and songs that had worked their way from my memory. I like when that happens. It’s almost like hearing them for the first time, all over again.
So, what artists have you forgotten about? And recently had a reunion with their music?
