Trace Adkins opposes gay marriage, saying it "ain't right"

Friday, October 24, 2008 – Trace Adkins made it crystal clear where he stands on gay marriage during a concert Thursday in Massachusetts.

Adkins is touring with James Otto as the opening act and Alan Jackson as the headliner. Adkins, who has espoused his conservative views both in comments and in a book out last year, said that the three were having a good time on their tour together. "We like each other a whole lot," Atkins told the crowd in Worcester, Mass. soon before launching into Ladies Like Country Boys.

"Since we are in Massachusetts, we can just get married before we go home," he said, obviously joking and then adding in a serious tone, "That shit ain't right, you know." The crowd responded with applause.

Atkins quickly said, "You can do whatever you want."

Massachusetts has made gay marriage legal, the first state in the country to do so.

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 ...
