Country music’s Tracy Lawrence was presented with the Independent Artist of the Year award at the 2014 MusicRow Country Breakout Awards on Tuesday in Nashville.
The annual awards event held each year at the start of Country Radio Seminar week recognizes artists who earned the most airplay on the MusicRow Country Breakout chart during the preceding year.
Lawrence was honored for the most airplay from two radio singles “Stop, Drop and Roll” and “Footprints on the Moon” from his current album Headlights, Taillights and Radios.

Lawrence will release his third single “LIE” from Headlights, Taillights and Radios to radio in March. Music critics have praised the song “LIE” as one of the best-written cuts of his career, with only “Time Marches On” surpassing it.
