Lacy J. Dalton Celebrates The 40th Anniversary Of “Takin’ It Easy”

Country hit-maker Lacy J. Dalton celebrates the 40th anniversary of her album and hit title track “Takin’ It Easy,” which was released in July of 1981. Co-written by Dalton, Mark Sherill, and Billy Sherill, the song was the highest-charting single of Dalton’s career, having reached number 2 on Billboard Hot Country Singles & Tracks chart and received a Million Airplay Award from BMI. Perfectly fitting for the easygoing tune, the vision for “Takin’ It Easy” came to life by Dalton and Mark while on a boat in the middle of Old Hickory Lake near Nashville, before being taken to Billy for production. Once released, it became one of Dalton’s most well-known songs to date. Other chart-toppers off “Takin’ It Easy” include fan favorites, “Everybody Makes Mistakes” and “Wild Turkey.”
