Entertainment Night: Trace Adkins
Tuesday, February 27 | 7:30 p.m. (Doors open at 7:00 p.m.)
A Nashville icon for more than two decades, Trace Adkins has made his mark on the country-music industry with 11 million albums sold, hit singles like “You’re Gonna Miss This” and “Ladies Love Country Boys,” GRAMMY nominations, Country Music Television and Academy of Country Music Awards, an autobiography and even a slew of movie and TV roles to his credit. But ask Adkins what’s left to prove in his career and the small-town Louisiana native says it’s simple: the itch remains – to create, to collaborate, to continually feel the excitement that comes after whipping up a new song out of thin air and laying it down to tape. It’s what, after all these years, he says he still craves. “It’s an adrenaline rush and I love it,” says Adkins, who spent much of last year in a Nashville studio writing and recording Something’s Going On, his 12th studio album — released March 31, 2017 — and his first release on his new label, BBR Music Group/Wheelhouse Records. “There’s nothing else like that,” the Louisiana naive offers. “That is still my favorite thing to do in this business. Go into the studio with just some lyrics and a melody and then let the finest musicians in the world help take it and turn it into something magical. It liberates me. I just dig it!”
