BY NEARLY EVERY METRIC, TRACY LAWRENCE IS A MEGA-WATT SUCCESS STORY. THIRTEEN MILLION ALBUMS SOLD. A COLLECTION OF NO. 1 SINGLES. TWENTY-TWO SONGS ON THE BILLBOARD TOP 10 CHARTS. A SLEW OF CMA AND ACM AWARDS. EVEN A GRAMMY NOMINATION.

Unlike most entertainers, Alan Jackson is a quiet, reserved man who can be uncomfortable with public attention and the media spotlight. However, watch him in concert, or listen to his recordings, and it becomes clear that Jackson loves country music. He admires country music’s heroes, and he relates to country music’s fans. He loves what country songs express. He loves the subtle emotions that the best country songwriters weave into lyrics. He loves getting on a concert stage, or settling into a recording booth, and turning his personal values and experiences into songs packed with wit, insight, and universal truths.

Contemporary Country singer Martina McBride rose to stardom in the late '90s, starting out with a more traditionalist approach and later moving into pop-friendlier territory. She was born Martina Mariea Schiff in Medicine Lodge, KS, in 1966 and discovered country music through her father, who led a local band called the Schifters. By her teen years, she was singing and playing keyboards with the Schifters, and after high school she gigged around Kansas with several different bands.

One band. Ten albums. Sixteen Number One hits. Over 23 million records and 10 million tickets sold. With statistics like that, the numbers pile up so high it’s easy to get lost on top of the heap and forget why you wanted to be there in the first place. But not Rascal Flatts. Time and success have only put them closer to their core on Back to Us, their tenth LP that’s both a return to form and a proclamation of everything that this trio has come to represent over nearly two decades. And that’s expert musicianship, razor-sharp vocals and songs that have shaped lives, loves and the genre of country music itself.
