On this self-titled album, contempo-country superstar Tracy Lawrence sticks his finger into a number of stylistic pies, tying the whole thing together with his warm, personable twang. "Crawlin' Again" sneaks a couple of surprising chord changes into an otherwise-conventional honky tonk tune. "It's Got You All Over it" is a jazzy love song led by a western swing-tinged fiddle. "It's Hard to be an Outlaw" manages to simultaneously re-examine the country outlaw image and use it as a metaphor for something more personal. The album closes with the sprightly two-stepper "I Won All the Battles," a deceptively light-hearted number that deals with marital strife and the aftermath of a conflict-besieged marriage, with Lawrence as the sorrowful victim of loneliness.
