  • A lot of modern country music is about adopting a persona and sticking to it; for variety, the smart country singer inserts the chosen persona into new surroundings and hunts for new conflicts. Tracy Lawrence wears the same hat and boots as the rest of them, and no doubt has a similar collection of Eagles and Bruce Springsteen records, but he derives his authenticity from an altogether different source. He's real because he sings from the point of view of a real human being (albeit one with an exaggerated baritone drawl); he has failings, he deals with them and he actually tries to change. TIME MARCHES ON, his fifth album, celebrates growth in a way that few country singers attempt.
  • On a blues shuffle called "Excitable Boy" (not the Warren Zevon song, though it may well be an homage) and the breezy "Speed Of A Fool," Lawrence plays the young, reckless soul. On other songs he does an accounting of that soul, which for Lawrence means more than simply drowning sorrows with a shot and a beer. Though he does wind up at a bar on the ballad "Different Man," and though he knows his girl will forever be with somebody else, he takes an inner inventory and walks out vowing, "I'm leaving here a different man tonight." On "Is That A Tear," which finds him deconstructing an ex's phone message, Lawrence looks for a sign of renewal where more traditional singers might settle for resignation. The more things change, it has been said, the more they stay the same. Lawrence upends that old-hat wisdom on the title track. "The only thing that stays the same," he swears, "is everything changes."

  • Tracy Lawrence's Time Marches On, the singer's fourth album, is another crowd-pleasing set of contemporary country. Like his previous albums, the song selection is a hit-or-miss affair, with about half of the songs failing to make much of an impression. The remainder, however, proves why Lawrence is one of the most popular singers in Nashville. ~ Stephen Thomas Erlewine
