Music Scene: Tracy Lawrence and other area shows set for Sept. 9–15
Country recording artist Tracy Lawrence will headline the music stage at the 2016 Pork and Hops Festival on Friday and Saturday, Sept. 9–10, at Lincoln Park.
Lawrence is scheduled to perform at 8:30 p.m. Saturday.
Going by the numbers, it all adds up to success for the Nashville artist. Here are a few figures that stand out at tracylawrence.com:
■ 22 songs on the Billboard Top 10 charts.
■ 18 No. 1 singles.
■ More than 13 million albums sold.
■ Multi-platinum Country Music Association and Academy of Country Music awards.
■ Two decades — he recently celebrated 20 years in music.
■ 11 songs of progressive music on his most recent studio album titled “Headlights, Taillights And Radios.” Released in August 2013, it marked his first studio album in five years.
“The album title carries a signature meaning for the artist,” the website said.
“‘Headlights’ looking to the future; ‘Taillights’ celebrating the past; and ‘Radios’ a tribute to his success on radio.”
Earlier this year, Lawrence was named Philanthropist of the Year at the Nashville’s National Philanthropy Day award ceremony for his efforts in partnership with the Nashville Rescue Mission to feed more than 75,000 in need.
During the past 10 years, Lawrence’s annual turkey fry and concert has raised more than $63,000 for the rescue mission.
Lawrence also is a nationally-syndicated radio show host for “Honky Tonkin’ with Tracy Lawrence.”
