Lawrence pays the "Price of Fame"
Friday, June 4, 2021
– Tracy Lawrence reflects on his 30 years of life on the road with the release of his latest single, "Price of Fame," featuring Eddie Montgomery.
The song appears on his upcoming album, "Hindsight 2020 Volume 2: Price of Fame," out Aug. 13. The track was penned by Lawrence, Brad Arnold and Rick Huckaby.
"When I started working on this Hindsight 2020 project for my 30th year in music, I was thinking back on all the years on the road and the sacrifices any touring artist makes along the way. This song really hits home for me," he said. "If anyone knows the challenges of being away, it's Eddie. We are longtime friends, and him joining me on this track made it special. We had a blast putting this one together."
"Hindsight 2020 Volume 2: Price of Fame" contains five new tracks, including "Price of Fame" and an all-new Tracy Byrd collaboration, along with five of his career hits.
Lawrence released the first volume of three in April.

The songs here don't quite have the same lyrical punch as some of Travis' work, but it is a solid album nonetheless. Lawrence's warm baritone and effortless, emotional delivery make each track sound genuine and heartfelt.

Although there's no lack of country Christmas CDs, it's hard to find many strictly country Christmas songs. That makes "Cold Beer" on Tracy Lawrence's first ever Christmas CD something a little special. It says, in part: "I'll sit at this bar with my good friends/And we'll all toast Christmas cheer...with cold beer." It is doubtful many country folk roast chestnuts December 25, let alone do so on an open fire, but they no doubt pop tops like a Budweiser ...
