Hindsight 2020 Volume 3: Angelina (Lawrence Music Group, 2022)
Reviewed by Michael Rampa
Tracy Lawrence had massive success in the nineties, but never really reached superstar status. Nonetheless, he remained remarkably consistent throughout his career and kept releasing music even after his commercial prime. He celebrates 30 years in the industry with a three-volume project. "Hindsight 2020."Each album features a few new songs peppered in with choice cuts from his back catalog. Volume 3 "Agelina" leads off with the radio ready "Didn't We." It is textbook Lawrence as his twangy baritone makes a ballad feel effortless. The title track is also right in his wheelhouse - a ready-made honky tonk romp with furious Jerry Lee style piano and plenty of fiddle and twangy guitar.
