Concert Reviews

Tracy Lawrence found his friends in Rootstown

on

The Dusty Armadillo shook like a “Texas Tornado” blew through when country music legend Tracy Lawrence brought his Made In America Tour to the stage Friday night (9/27). Lawrence’s down-home friendly demeanor and massive talent had the crowd begging for more from the moment he walked out on stage to the time when (sadly), the house lights came back on at the end of the show. It was almost magical the way the Dusty A transformed into a rollicking Texas roadhouse where job #1 was to enjoy some amazing music and have a darn good time in the process.

Backed by an incredibly tight band, Lawrence worked his way through a well-planned set that was made up of just the right mix of new songs and a long list of traditional favorites. He opened the show with the first two tracks from the new album, “Made in America” and “Forgive Yourself”. Lawrence’s instincts for what works to satisfy an audience were spot on as the crowd roared their approval for the new work. From that point on, it was like a massive group of longtime friends were gathered around a campfire for an old time sing along. Not being much of a singer myself, I marveled at just how good the crowd sounded with their back-up vocals.

In his interview with CCM (see “Tracy Lawrence Is Made In America” on 9/25), Lawrence promised fans a high energy performance and a great time. Let there be no doubt that he delivered on both in spades. This was a night of great country music as country music should be — pure, passionate and touches the heart. We really can’t say enough good things about the Tracy Lawrence concert this night. It was one that people will remember and be talking about for a long time to come.

Thank you, Tracy Lawrence, for creating a brand-new memory. We tip our hats to you!
