Country artist Tracy Byrd was born in Vidor Texas in 1966 to Jerry and Brenda Byrd. While studying at Texas State University, he began to sing with a local band, Rimfire, which featured performances by artists like Mark Chesnutt. After recording a cover of Hank Williams’ “Your Cheatin’ Heart” at a mall recording studio, Byrd was entered into a local talent contest and, by 1992, was signed with MCA Records, where he released five albums.
His third song, “Holdin’ Heaven,” released in 1993, reached the Number One spot on the country charts. Over the next decade and a half, Byrd reached the Top 10 numbers times with singles like “Lifestyles of the Not So Rich and Famous,” “Watermelon Crawl,” “The First Step,” “Keeper of the Stars,” “Big Love,” and “I’m from the Country.”
Byrd’s song “Keeper of the Stars” became his signature song and gained the Song of the Year award from the Country Music Association in ’95. His albums Tracy Byrd, Love Lessons and Big Love have all gained Gold certifications and his second album, No Ordinary Man, reached Platinum two times.
In 2007, Byrd released the album Different Things under his own label, Blind Mule. In 2009, he announced that he would be taking a hiatus from touring to spend more time with his family.
