Looking at the songs chosen for the album, a theme emerges: Acceptance. In one way or another each song relates to accepting where we are in life, and a determination to have a good time in spite of obstacles the world has thrown our way.

Trace Relations is just that, all of vocalist Tracy Ready's musical relations. "Prosperity Street" is a unique listening experience encompassing Rock, Blues, Jazz and Americana styles. It's a tribute to artists and songs that influenced him and a showcase for many great musicians he's had the privilege of knowing over the years. The track list features seven original songs and five very distinctive cover tunes. The songs and the original cover art and photography also reflect Trace's transient lifestyle, having spent the past 22 years going back and forth from Dallas to San Antonio, personally and musically. The songs draw on influences from these two iconic cities and the miles of road in between.
