Country Chart-Topper Tracy Lawrence Returns With Highly-Anticipated New Music; “Out Here In It” Releases Today (2/16), Out Here In It EP Arriving June 7

NASHVILLE, Tenn. – Country music icon and philanthropist, Tracy Lawrence, brings his signature, classic Country sound to the forefront with highly-anticipated new music with “Out Here In It,” available now and unveils the release date of his forthcoming six-track EP Out Here In It, due June 7. The new music announcement from the “Country music luminary” (American Songwriter) comes two years after his 2022 Hindsight 2020 Vol 3. album, and will feature carefully-crafted cuts from some of Nashville’s hottest songwriters including Ernest Keith Smith, Rodney Clawson, Jacob Durrett, Wyatt McCubbin, Devin Dawson, Lee Thomas Miller and more.
“It’s been a while since I’ve been in the studio,” shares Lawrence. “I always have a blast working up new songs so it felt so good to cut new music. My last project, the 30th anniversary album Hindsight 2020, was the closing of a chapter of my life. With this new project, I really wanted to freshen things up a bit. A little bit more contemporary but still very Country. I’m very proud of it and hope you all really enjoy it.”
Out Here In It Track Listing:
1. “Pretty Dang Good” (Wyatt McCubbin, Bobby Pinson, Carson Chamberlain)
2. “I Could Use One” (Brent Rupard, Brad Hutsell, Kyle James, Anthony Olympia)
3. “A Cowboy Would” (Jacob Durrett, Ernest Keith Smith, Devin Dawson, Rodney Clawson)
4. “Gulf of Mexico” (Monty Criswell, Derek George, Bubba Strait)
5. “Out Here In It” (Trey Lewis, Lee Thomas Miller, Chris Utley)
6. “Honky Tonk Up” (Monty Criswell, Derek George, Thomas Archer)
In the project’s title-track, out now, Lawrence takes listeners with him on a retrospective look at his life from where he is now. Further cementing his legendary status with a new classic for the ages, the self-reflecting track showcases Lawrence’s timeless and familiar sound as he recalls life’s hardships, successes and all the moments in between. Lawrence focuses on soaking in each moment while appreciating the journey and acknowledging the importance of always living it to the fullest potential. With a nostalgic feel, the Country icon rolls with the punches of life as he brings us back to the essence of classic Country, embodying “what made this genre great” (MusicRow). 
Complementing today’s highly-anticipated release, Lawrence also stars in a new music video. Set against Lawrence’s iconic cowboy silhouette, the video reels through the landscapes of life. Lawrence reminisces on his path that made him the person he is today and how his strong-will still carries him through the good and the bad life may throw his way.
Lawrence will take his new music to the road as he joins Riley Green for his Ain’t My Last Rodeo Tour, beginning next Thursday, Feb. 22 in Pikeville, Ky.. The 33-stop tour will visit amphitheaters and arenas throughout the spring, with notable stops in Houston, Lexington, Tuscaloosa, Knoxville, San Jose and Phoenix. Come May 4, Lawrence will headline the Ryman Auditorium for the very first time. Tickets available at
