Lawrence Music Group celebrated its one-year anniversary Wednesday (2/1) by entertaining a packed house at Nashville’s famous Bluebird Café for an evening of words and music presented by ASCAP. The round featured artists and writers who have joined forces with Tracy Lawrence’s record label, publishing and artist management company during the year such as American Idol’s Lacey Brown, Rick Huckaby, Jonny Houlihan, and producer/songwriter Flip Anderson. “It’s been an exciting year for us,” said Tracy Lawrence. “We founded the company on the core principal that music would be the foundation for everything we do. It’s important even in this digital age we continue to provide opportunities for artists and songwriters to create music, which is the cornerstone to the Nashville music community.”
