Trace Adkins tries to feel something with new single

Thursday, April 19, 2007 – Trace Adkins went to radio with a new single, "I Wanna Feel Something," Monday. The song is the third release from Adkins' gold certified "Dangerous Man" album and the follow-up to his hit "Ladies Love Country Boys."

"I recorded this song because I think the message is timely," explains Adkins. "We're just so overwhelmed and bombarded with information that it's hard to get a rise out of us anymore - about anything. It seems like it has to be something really shocking for us to stop and go, Wow!"

"I Wanna Feel Something" also marks Adkins' debut as a producer, teaming in that role with songwriters Casey Beathard and Kenny Beard.

CD reviews for Trace Adkins

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 ...
