Tracy Lawrence to become San Antonio citizen
Friday, July 24, 2009
– Tracy Lawrence will become an honorary citizen of San Antonio.
Mayor Julian Castro and the area Chamber of Commerce will present Tracy with a Chamber/Mayoral Proclamation in recognition and appreciation of his numerous visits to the city over the past 15 years and his philanthropic endeavors on Friday, Aug. 14, just prior to Lawrence's scheduled performance that evening at Cowboys Far Weset.
The Arkansas native will become the first country artist to receive this honor. "I am humbled by this gesture and am at a loss for words to express my gratitude," Lawrence said. "The folks of San Antonio, and all across the state of Texas, have always made me feel right at home; their warmth and genuine kinship is entirely mutual."
Lawrence released his first inspirational CD (and third album from his own independent label, Rocky Comfort Records), "The Rock."

Lawrence's warm baritone and effortless, emotional delivery make each track sound genuine and heartfelt.

Although there's no lack of country Christmas CDs, it's hard to find many strictly country Christmas songs. That makes "Cold Beer" on Tracy Lawrence's first ever Christmas CD something a little special. It says, in part: "I'll sit at this bar with my good friends/And we'll all toast Christmas cheer...with cold beer." It is doubtful many country folk roast chestnuts December 25, let alone do so on an open fire, but they no doubt pop tops like a Budweiser ...
