While on tour in his hometown of Texarkana, Ark. last week (September 15), Tracy Lawrence stopped by the Texarkana College campus, where he was asked to speak to a group of students, including the student organization members and scholarship winners.

What he didn’t realize was the visit was also to present the hit singer-songwriter with his own honor for his work in the music business. The college presented Lawrence with an honorary Associate of Arts Degree with a concentration in music, which was given to the singer by the school’s president, James Henry Russell, and the Texarkana College Board president, Mike Sandefur.

Over the past 15 years, the Tracy Lawrence Foundation has endowed several scholarships to various colleges, including the Texarkana College.

Lawrence has certainly set the bar high for what a success story in the country music industry looks like. Throughout his career, Lawrence has charted over 30 singles, including the No. 1 hits ‘Sticks and Stone,’ ‘Alibis,’ ‘Can’t Break It to My Heart,’ ‘If the Good Die Young,’ ‘Texas Tornado,’ ‘Time Marches On’ and most recently, ‘Find Out Who Your Friends Are.’ His latest release is ‘The Singer,’ which impacted country radio this summer.
