“Tracy Byrd, American country music artist, became a household name on the Country Music Scene in 1993 when his third single, called “Holdin’ Heaven”, off of his MCA Records, self-titled debut album, hit #1 on the Billboard Country Charts,” the release says. “Although he did not land a second Number One until 2002’s “Ten Rounds with Jose Cuervo”, Byrd has charted more than thirty hit singles in his career, including eleven additional Top Ten hits.

“He has also released ten studio albums and two greatest-hits albums, with four gold certifications and one double-platinum certification from the RIAA.

“Pinned as an “Artist to Watch” in 2020 by Pandora, The Boot, and Sounds Like Nashville and included in CMT’s “Next Women of Country” program, Laniey Wilson kicked off the year by making her Grand Ole Opry debut—a dream come true for the Baskin, Louisiana native. Hailing from the small farming community, the Country newcomer has as much grit in her as she does soul.”
