(Winner will be announced on April 29 from the Hollywood Palladium) The őnon-drinking song‚ can be found on his current RCA project, The Truth About Men.

People hear music on many levels and while Tracy's song is lighthearted, the serious concept of losing a relationship because alcohol was too important speaks to the absolute truth. Doors can open to greater awareness and steps to recovery by telling the truth about addition without preaching or moralizing. Tracy exclaims, „This song can strike a different chord in people. A lot of us, myself included, have learned the hard way that sometimes the drinkin‚ bone is indeed connected to the lonely bone.‚„
