If you’ve ever believed in destiny, then you hung onto every lyric of Tracy Byrd’s “The Keeper of the Stars.” Released in 1995 when the song began taking flight in Tracy’s live shows, the song told the story of a couple who know full well that they wouldn’t have ended up together without a little help from the heavens above.

It was a sweet song then. But, all these years later, it might just be an even sweeter song now.

And, of course, listening to Tracy’s sweet voice might have you craving some new songs from the country hit-maker. Well, don’t despair.

In 2016, Tracy released his first album in over 10 years called “All American Texan,” featuring tracks such as “Texas Truck,” “Roll with It” and “Don’t Be in a Hurry.” Much like “The Keeper of the Stars,” he also shows his spiritual side on the new album with songs like“Before I Die,” “Only Jesus” and “Take it to the Bank.”
