Billboard is excited to bring you the title track of Lawson's new album, "Just a Mortal Man," which he said took on a very personal turn not too long after recording it.

He has played in the Clinch Mountain Boys since the age of 10. So titling his latest album The Legacy Continues definitely makes sense.
