Tracey Lawrence: "Paint Me a Birmingham" At Grand Ole Oprey, Then and Now


The Grand Ole Opry released a video of Tracey Lawrence performing "Paint Me a Birmingham" when he was there at the beginning of February. It made me nostalgic of my days in Birmingham (I lived there for just over 3 years) so I wanted to find a music video of him performing it (or one of him performing it IN Birmingham)

Well, I wasn't able to find a produced music video, I did find a video of him performing it at the Grand Ole Opry many many years ago. I found the difference in his performance quite striking. Check it out. Here's the older one.

And here's the performance from February 8th of this year. What do you think?
