There was an official music video featuring Byrd and his band performing in a field, surrounded by horses, cows, and other farm animals. The video showcases the rural lifestyle that the song celebrates.

My version of this song is slightly more bluesy than the original country recording by Tracy Byrd.
Ten Rounds With Jose Cuervo hails from his album "Ten Rounds", with this song being the lead single. It peaked at #1 on the US Country Charts, and his 2nd #1 hit since 1993. The song crossed over on the Billboard Hot 100 at #26.
The song was written by Casey Beathard and Michael Heeney and found on the album "Ten Rounds".
The official music video features Byrd and his band performing in a bar, with shots of tequila being served and people dancing.
Garth Brooks had also recorded the song but in a phone conversation, Byrd assured him the song was going to do well as a single for him (Byrd), so Garth let him have the single release and held off. To my knowledge Garth Brooks never did release his version as a single. A true gentleman right there.
The Keeper Of The Stars is from the Tracy Byrd "No Ordinary Man" album from 1994 but was not written by Tracy Byrd but instead was written by Dickey Lee, Karen Staley, and Danny Mayo
The track was released as a single in 1995 and it reached No. 2 on the Billboard Hot Country Singles & Tracks chart. It also won an ACM Award for Song Of The Year a year after its release.
The official music video features Byrd singing the song in a beautiful outdoor setting, with images of stars, planets, and galaxies superimposed on the screen.
The album version is a bit higher than the single version as Byrd did a second recording a bit lower as he felt more comfortable in that key vocally. A third recording was done for the 2001 album "Ten Rounds".
The Truth About Men had a few guests including Blake Shelton, Andy Griggs and Montgomery Gentry and hails from the 2003 album of the same name.
The song reached #13 on the US Country charts and crossed over to #77 on the Billboard Hot 100.
