Sticks and Stones is the debut album of American country music artist Tracy Lawrence. Released in 1991 on Atlantic Records, it produced four singles: the title track, "Today's Lonely Fool", "Runnin' Behind", and "Somebody Paints the Wall", which peaked at #1, #3, #4, and #8, respectively, on the Billboard Hot Country Singles & Tracks (now Hot Country Songs) charts between 1991 and 1993.

The track "Paris, Tennessee" was later recorded by Dennis Robbins on his 1992 album Man with a Plan and by Kenny Chesney on his 1995 album All I Need to Know. "Somebody Paints the Wall" was previously recorded by Josh Logan on his 1988 album of the same name, from which it was released as a single that year.
