Trace Adkins shelves scheduled CD for greatest hits package

Thursday, October 25, 2007 – Forget about a new studio album for Trace Adkins as planned. Instead, he's going to release his second greatest hits package in December.

Adkins was slated to release "Game On" Dec. 4, which had been confirmed by his publicist earlier this week, but that has changed "because of a special career opportunity."

Instead, due out the same day is "American Man, Greatest Hits Volume II," which was in the works for release later next year. The CD will feature three new songs, including his current single "I Got My Game On."

"We were already under some extremely tight deadlines as it was to make the street week," said Adkins. "I just was not able to get it all done because, to be honest, a pressing career opportunity came my way that I really wanted to take advantage of. As a result, I simply ran out of time. "

He did not specify the opportunity. A label spokeswoman said, "Unfortunately, we can't comment on this career opportunity just yet...we promise to let everyone know as soon as we can."

Songs on the greatest hits CD are:
Ladies Love Country Boys
I Got My Game On (new song)
You're Gonna Miss This (new song)
Honky Tonk Badonkadonk
Hot Mama
Rough & Ready
Songs About Me
I Wanna Feel Something
American Man (new song)
I Came Here To Live

Adkins will soon be releasing his first self-authored book, "A Personal Stand: Observations & Opinions from a Freethinking Roughneck" on Nov. 13.

CD review - Ain't That Kind of Cowboy Anybody with staying power in the modern country music landscape must have found a four-leaf clover and a niche. Trace Adkins hearkens back to a time when country stars included more Alpha males. He's got a baritone as deep as an oil well and stands eye-to-eye with quite a few pro basketball players. It's enough presence to show up on screen, and Adkins has had more than one foray into film over the 30-plus years he's been singing for his supper. Now approaching 60, you wonder if ...
CD review - Something's Going On Trace Adkins' wonderful low singing voice can be a little deceptive because he could easily sing utter crap and still somehow sound great. It's why the critical ear must pay close attention to specifically what he's saying in his songs whenever evaluating his work. Adkins doesn't write his own songs, so he's entirely dependent upon stellar writers. Thankfully, "Something's Going On" is a better than average collection of songs, especially good for Adkins, as ...
CD review - Live Country DVD "Live Country" is a concert film featuring Trace Adkins performing his biggest hits at The Paramount in Huntington, N.Y. Anticipation was high for this one because Adkins, along with Josh Turner, is one of our very best low-voiced singers. Perhaps poor audio quality is to blame, but Adkins' singing isn't nearly as powerful in this live setting as it is on CD. From the cheesy stage props to the casually dressed backing singers (one even has a headband that leaves her looking ...
