By nearly every metric, Tracy Lawrence is a mega-watt success story. Thirteen millions albums sold. A collection of no. one singles. Twenty-two songs on the Billboard Top-Ten charts. A slew of CMA and ACM awards. Even a Grammy nomination. Yes, the small town Arkansas-bred teenager who arrived in Nashville nearly three decades ago with a guitar and $700 in his pocket has done himself proud. Don't remind him, though. Because despite it all, the"sticks and stones" icon has always felt it important to maintain a steadfast workmanlike approach to and sheer reverence for his craft. When asked to sum up his career, Lawrence says with a sense of wonder in his voice, "I go to work. I put on my uniform and I go do my job. I've been blessed."
