By 1996, Tracy Lawrence already had six songs hit No. 1 on the Billboard country charts.

That year, he released his fourth album, Time Marches On, which included his biggest chart hit at the time. 

The song “Time Marches On” went on to receive Single of the Year and Song of the Year nominations from the Country Music Association.

Time Marches On” tells the story of a married couple and their two children, starting when the kids were just babies. The song follows the children as they grow into adults.

The sister goes from being a child and crying out from her bed, to using makeup and acne face wash, to finally calling herself a “sexy grandma”.

Brother goes from wearing feathers on his head, to smoking dope, to being on a diet for high cholesterol.

The theme of the song is in the lyrics: “The only thing that stays the same / Is everything changes“. 

Written by legendary song writer Bobby Braddock, Lawrence brings this emotional story to life in an incredible live performance.
