Tracy Lawrence a Hit at the Quincy Firefighters Local 63 Country Music Concert

Tracy Lawrence at the Adams County Fairgrounds on June 22, 2013
Kurt Parsons

This year marked the 30th anniversary of the Quincy Firefighters Local 63 Country Music Concert, and the entertainment was amazing. Four acts performed, with Zeke Cernea and the unXpected playing a pre-show set near the main entrance, then Jerad Harness and Blackgrass opened the main stage performances, followed by Madd Hoss Jackson and headliner Tracy Lawrence.

Tracy performed a mix from his song catalog, from his earliest and best-known hits to new music from his upcoming album, scheduled for release late in the summer. One of the new songs featured had a regional connection: It was inspired by the tragedy in Joplin, MO when a tornado destroyed most of the town in 2011. Tracy also paid tribute to the late George Jones, by singing ‘The One I Loved Back Then’ and ‘He Stopped Loving Her Today’ as part of his set.

KICK-FM was on hand to emcee the night, and several KICK-FM listeners had a chance to go backstage and meet Tracy Lawrence and get an autograph. We took tons of pictures, and Brian Myles also conducted a video interview on Tracy’s bus. We will be publishing all of our photos, and Brian’s interview early next week. We would like to thank everyone that came out to support the Quincy Firefighters at the Adams County Fairgrounds!
