Hindsight 2020 will feature 30 songs from his career with new songs
Tracy Lawrence is celebrating his 30th anniversary as a recording artist in 2021 with Hindsight 2020, a special three-volume album that will be released throughout the year. Hindsight 2020 celebrates 30 songs for 30 years with a combination of new material, collaborations, and some of his favorite hits.
“It has truly been the honor of a lifetime to be so welcomed by country music fans,” says Lawrence. “As I look back over the past 30 years, I am incredibly humbled to have been able to live my dream and to have so many folks support me along the way. I wanted to celebrate this amazing milestone with fond reflection and embrace the next chapter with the people who made it all happen, my fans.”
Volume 1: Stairway to Heaven Highway to Hell is Lawrence’s first release from Hindsight 2020 and will be available on April 23rd. This 10 song collection features all new material from Lawrence, who penned nine of the tracks, mixing his signature blend of contemporary and traditional country music that has made him a mainstay since his 1991 debut, Sticks & Stones.
Ahead of the full release, Lawrence will be releasing new music every two weeks via his social media platforms with title track from Volume 1, “Stairway to Heaven Highway to Hell,” available now on all music platforms.
“I had the idea for this song when we were out in Ventura, California. I was thinking of song titles and this one just kind of came to me,” Lawrence adds. “I really had been wanting to write with Craig Wiseman for a long time and reached out to him. We actually got together and did a Zoom write. I have cut some of his stuff over the years and we had always talked about writing, but this was the first opportunity that we had really taken to sit down and write. I think this thing turned out great and the idea is phenomenal. It’s going to be a fun song to play on the road.”
Lawrence was a guest on The Music Universe Podcast last year where he discussed “When The Cowboy’s Gone.”
