November 4, 1994
Tracy Lawrence returns to the top with another heartbreaking ballad.
The Road to No. 1
After four consecutive No. 1 hits from Alibis, Lawrence scored a top ten hit with “Renegades, Rebels, and Rogues” from the Maverick soundtrack. The lead single and title track from his third studio album followed, and it became his eighth No. 1 hit.
The No. 1
I wish I had more to say about this specific Tracy Lawrence record, but this is a very typical Tracy Lawrence record.
He’s in full on heartbreak mode as he watches his former love dance with her feet off the ground, as he realizes that the man she is now with is better for her than he ever was.
He sings the hell out of it, just like he did with every other ballad from this era.
It doesn’t quite reach the dizzying heights of “Alibis” and “Can’t Break it to My Heart,” but it’s still good enough to be among the better chart-toppers of 1994.
The Road From No. 1
I See it Now will match Alibis, with three more No. 1 singles from it on the way in 1995.
“I See it Now” gets a B+.
