Adkins slates Songs & Stories Tour

Monday, January 23, 2012 – Trace Adkins announced the Songs & Stories Tour this spring. These evenings of performances will incorporate stories, both humorous and meaningful, that pay homage to Adkins' working-man roots and rich musical heritage.

The tour starts March 8 in Des Moines, Ia. And ends May 17 in Atlanta. Tickets for March dates go on sale to the public on Friday (Jan. 27).

Inspiration for the tour came as Adkins released his 10th studio album, "Proud To Be Here," last summer with a CMT Invitation Only special. The special featured new hits Just Fishin' and Million Dollar View, a Q&A session and songs from Adkins' 20-year career. Adkins enjoyed the session and started thinking about launching a tour.

"I've had many narrow escapes and blessings in my life. The right song at the right time has been my saving grace, and that's something I have in common with the audience. Sharing meaningful songs, stories and some laughs 'around the campfire' is the country music tradition, and I'm looking forward to it."

Adkins will tour with a band.

March 8 Des Moines IA Hoyt Sherman

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. 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 ...
