When asked who his biggest influencers were, Lacy responded, “As a singer/songwriter, I try and surround myself with positive, good people at all times. Everyday they inspire me to write and perform at my very best and these same influencers encourage me to keep pushing when things are tough. They provide me with that kick in the ass we all need once in a while”
