Tracy Byrd’s career as a traditional country troubadour began in 1993 when her single “Holdin’ Heaven” hit No. 1 on the Billboard Country chart. Her self-titled debut album that year also included a remake of Johnny Paycheck’s hit “Someone to Give My Love To,” which helped the album become certified gold. His second album, “No Ordinary Man”, continued to gain momentum with “Lifestyles of the Not So Rich and Famous” and “The First Step” topping the charts. But it was the release of his killer “Watermelon Crawl” that pushed sales past half a million. The album was accompanied by the number one single “The Keeper of the Stars” in 1995. “The Keeper of the Stars” also won Byrd the Academy of Country Music’s Song of the Year Award.
Byrd went on to add several more singles to his list of chart-toppers, including “Go to Jerusalem,” “Heaven in My Woman’s Eyes,” “4 to 1 in Atlanta,” “Don’t Take Him, He’s All I Got,” “I’m From The Country” and “I Want To Feel That Way Again.” After leaving MCA Records, he added hits such as “Put Your Hands On Me”, “The Truth About Men” and the popular and funny “The Drinkin’ Bone”, which became a crowd favorite. The new millennium also saw the release of his album “10 Rounds”, which featured “A Good Way to Get on My Bad Side,” “10 Rounds of Jose Cuervo” and “Just Let Me Be in Love.”
Byrd, a well-known outdoorsman, was recruited to TNN Outdoors as the host of the Weekend Outdoor Broadcast in 1998. His greatest hits album, “Keepers: Greatest Hits,” was released around the same time and received Byrd’s other gold album. His latest album, “All American Texan,” was released in 2016.
