Overview

An appreciation of family, simple pleasures, and old-fashioned love permeates Tracy Lawrence's telling self-titled new album. Sounding like a man revitalized, Lawrence, who's hit a few rough patches in his time, luxuriates in these archetypal, mainstream country feel-good songs, even the ones that detail his own missteps. The forthright ballad "Getting Back Up" drives home the key lyric -- "But as bad as it's been/I'm not givin' in" -- with finger-picked guitars, booming drums, and a mournful pedal steel in support of Lawrence's intense vocal. The folksy, shuffling "That Was Us" recounts the juvenile hijinks of an earlier, rambunctious time, the twist being that the wild boys Lawrence describes snap to in a crisis and come to the aid of a farmer too sick to bring in his crop. Boasting an infectious rhythm and bright, singsong melody, the album-closing "I Won All the Battles" finds a bemused Lawrence reflecting on the folly of satisfying his need to be right by winning petty arguments with the woman he loved, only to lose her in the end. The buoyancy of his vocal -- and the utter lack of self-pity -- bespeaks a satisfied mind. Lesson learned, the hard way. Move on.
