Artist of the Week: Trace Adkins
Already earning a place among the most identifiable artists of his generation, Trace Adkins has reached a place where he got a "new sense of invigoration." With a strong legion of fans supporting him, the country music crooner continues his journey as a music icon by moving on to a new album "Cowboy's Back in Town".
The album will become his first release under Show Dog-Universal Music, the newly-merged record label headed by Toby Keith and famed producer Mark Wright. In making the effort, Adkins was granted plenty of leeway which gave him the space to express his own creative voice. "I know what you do," so Keith trusted him as an artist with restless intellect and wide-ranging interests.
"I feel as energized and enthusiastic as I did when I first got a record deal," Adkins said in response. "I'm having fun again, so [the title] 'Cowboy's Back in Town' just made sense to me." The album will be released across United States on August 17 with eleven new tracks listed on it.
"Toby has said this new music has a smile on it, and maybe that's just a reflection of where I'm at right now," he shared. In fact, the album has a lot of attitude, not only the "smile" but also the edge. They are shown in such songs as redneck wedding tale "Hold My Beer", couch-potato track "Hell, I Can Do That" and apolitical farmer-tan anthem "Whoop a Man's Ass".
