Tracy Byrd Braces for Rita

As Hurricane Rita roars toward the Texas Gulf Coast, Beaumont resident Tracy Byrd is doing what more than a million other Texans are doing—evacuating with his family.

As Hurricane Rita roars toward the Texas Gulf Coast, Beaumont resident Tracy Byrd is doing what more than a million other Texans are doing—evacuating with his family. Like his buddy Mark Chesnutt, Tracy is a native of the Beaumont area and he is taking Rita very seriously—but not just because he also has a weekend home on Galveston beach. While Tracy and his family—including their dogs and cat—are heading to Dallas, his thoughts will be on the hardships his fellow Texans and others are facing because of Rita. Tracy, you and all others in Rita's path are in our thoughts and prayers.
