When Country music legend Tracy Lawrence was planning his critically-acclaimed album GOOD OLE DAYS, which pairs some of his most iconic hits with some of today’s biggest new stars, he knew that he also had to capture his vision in a collection of memories in the form of a book, of the same title. Lawrence enlisted Brittany Hodak, Cofounder of ZinePak, to help create the interactive book which embodies the story of the making of his career in pictures and captions. Lawrence and Hodak culled through a mountain of memorabilia, collected and preserved by the superstar, to compile this amazing and beautifully bound book which documents Lawrence’s life over the past twenty years.
Lawrence felt it was only fitting to donate the very first copy to The Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum. He recently visited with Carolyn Tate, Senior VP of Museum Services at the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum, and donated the first bound volume to the museum’s ever-growing collection of over 2.5 million artifacts.
