Tracy Lawrence Says Filming “Find Out Who Your Friends Are” Video Was A “Fun Day Of Fellowship”
On May 18, 2008, Tracy Lawrence accepted the ACM Award for Vocal Event of the Year live from the MGM Grand Arena in Las Vegas alongside Kenny Chesney and Tim McGraw for the hit song “Find Out Who Your Friends Are.”
“You know, that was a big honor for me. We picked up the CMA and ACM Award for Vocal Event of the Year. And being able to accept that with Tim and Kenny was very, very special for me,” Lawrence recalled on Shawn Parr’s Backstage Country.
The country singer had released his original version on his album and then re-released it with the vocals of his good friends Chesney and McGraw. Although they did not appear in the music video, it became a party filled with several celebrity appearances including athletes Roy Oswalt and Cornelius Griffin as well as fellow country stars George Jones and Daryl Worley.
“We shot this down in Alabama, and it was in July, and it was so freaking hot,” Lawrence said. “We had Roy Oswalt there. I mean, we had so many different celebrities and people that came in to shoot the video. It was just a fun day of fellowship and everybody just having a good time and hanging out. It was just blistering hot.”
Lawrence will hit the road starting February 22 in Pikeville, Kentucky on Riley Green’s 2024 Ain’t My Last Rodeo Tour. He will also headline the Ryman Auditorium in Nashville on May 4.
