Lawrence has set out to embark on the next chapter of his music career with his highly anticipated forthcoming studio album Headlights, Taillights and Radios to be released August 2013. The first single, “Stop Drop And Roll” written by hit songwriters Casey Beathard who penned Lawrence’s CMA and ACM award winning hit “Find Out Who Your Friends Are” and Brandon Kinney, marks the singers first studio album in five years.
Reflecting on the creative process when recording Headlights, Taillights and Radios Lawrence knew that he needed to push the envelope and creativity to a new level. “When recording the new album it was a very different process than I had ever done before,” said Lawrence. “We ended up recording the album in two parts, that’s just how it worked out. I started recording in the direction to make a more traditional County record. But as time progressed, I needed to explore and challenge myself musically. I wanted to go deeper and try a more edgy and progressive sound that reflected where I was going next. The combination really worked well for me and I think it will appeal to many different types of County music fans.”
Headlights, Taillights and Radios is not just another release for Lawrence, it’s a testament to how his music continues to evolve and engage all generations of Country music fans. The 11-song collection features some of his most progressive music to date.
The album title Headlights, Taillights and Radios carries a signature meaning for the artist. “Headlights” looking to the future; “Taillights” celebrating the past; and “Radios” a tribute to his success on radio. Headlights, Taillights And Radios gives us a new Tracy Lawrence. One that is sure to inspire and ignite a whole new generation of Country music.
