Tracy Lawrence Finds Out Who His Friends Are With Tim McGraw Duet at ToC Fest 2015
Tracy Lawrence took the stage at the 2015 Taste of Country Festival in the afternoon heat and got the crowd involved in a loud singalong, but it was when headliner Tim McGraw joined his buddy for "Find Out Who Your Friends Are" that the 20,000 fired-up country fans really went crazy.
Despite the temps on Hunter Mountain, Lawrence sported a black T-shirt and black cowboy hat. "Y'all ready to get rowdy?" he asked after his first song. He already knew the answer as he and his five-piece band — playing in front of a street sign that read 'Tracy Lawrence Avenue' — led into songs like "Better Man, Better Off" and "If the World Had a Front Porch." Then, Lawrence delivered one of his "personal favorites," "I See It Now," as the crowd grew louder. "Texas Tornado" and "How a Cowgirl Says Goodbye" followed soon after. The hitmaker mentioned how he's been pursuing his country career for well over two decades, and it was obvious he's made an impact — the crowd knew all the words.
"Sticks and Stones," one of his most recognizable songs, was next. A beach ball flew through the air, and Lawrence didn't miss a beat as he kicked it off the stage, saying: "What a great crowd you guys are!"
"Alibis," "Time Marches On" and "Paint Me a Birmingham" also made the 16-song set. And then ... "Find Out Who Your Friends Are." Lawrence was well into the song when a familiar face — McGraw — appeared onstage in workout clothes to support his friend, whom he says is "one of the best country singers in the world."
