Trace Adkins plans winter tour

Tuesday, November 27, 2007 – Trace Adkins hits the road this winter in support of his upcoming greatest hits plus CD on the 2008 Trace Adkins American Man Tour.

Luke Bryan, Jason Michael Carroll, Bucky Covington, Bill Engvall and Kellie Pickler will be among opening acts on the tour sponsored by Great American Country (GAC).

The eight-week American Man tour launches
Jan. 24 in Bangor, ME and continues across the country, making stops in Hershey, Pa.; Toledo, Ohio; Charleston, S.C.; Asheville, N.C. and Columbus, Ga.

In every city, contest winners will be invited to a private acoustic experience with Adkins in the designated Game On Lounge. The private visitation will allow fans to hear Adkins as he recounts funny stories from the road, participate in a question and answer session and listen to acoustic versions of his hit songs.

The tour sponsorship announcement comes days before Adkins' first GAC concert special, Trace Adkins: American Man, which premieres Dec. 1 (9 p.m. ET), and his new CD "American Man: Greatest Hits Volume II," out Dec. 4. The show was taped live at the Mill at Lebanon in Lebanon, Tenn. in October. The special contains exclusive interviews with Adkins in the city of Lebanon about his previous adventures in the town.

"We partnered with Trace to bring a preview of his live concert to our viewers and we are continuing the momentum by becoming the official media sponsor of Trace's winter tour," says Ed Hardy, president of GAC.

CD reviews for Trace Adkins

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.

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.
