Twenty years ago, Lawrence led with Bobby Braddock's story-song.
On June 22, 1996, Tracy Lawrence spent his first of three weeks at No. 1 on Billboard's Hot Country Songs chart with "Time Marches On."
The song was written by Country Music Hall of Famer Bobby Braddock, who penned No. 1 songs in each decade from the '60s to the 2000s, starting with Tammy Wynette's "D-I-V-O-R-C-E" in 1968. Other leaders on his songwriting resume: George Jones' iconic "He Stopped Loving Her Today" (1980), Toby Keith's "I Wanna Talk About Me" (2001) and Billy Currington's "People Are Crazy" (2009).
