Adkins gets "Tough"

Tuesday, September 4, 2012 – Trace Adkins' latest anthem, Tough People Do, went to digital retailers over the holiday weekend.

Adkins performed the song at an Aug. 28 charity event following the Republican national convention in Tampa, Fla.

Introduced by Adkins as a "song for all of us," the song says "tough times don't last, tough people do."

Adkins told ABC News Radio, "I'm just really proud of the song, and to me, the song just says - sometimes we need to be reminded of who we are, where we come from and what our history is. We've made it through tougher times than this."

Tough People Do was written by Chris DuBois, Jason Matthews and Joel Shewmake and will appear on Adkins' upcoming album. There is no title or date for the new disc.

From the cheesy stage props to the casually dressed backing singers (one even has a headband that leaves her looking »»»
The King's Gift CD review - The King's Gift
Trace Adkins, with that wonderfully deep voice of his, is always a pleasure. He's like an actor (well he has acted actually) that never gives a bad performance, even in a poor movie. When it comes to evaluating Adkins' albums, it's all about the music he surrounds himself with and the songs he's given to sing. And with "The King's Gift," Adkins is placed in a nearly can't miss situation; he's singing mostly familiar Christmas carols, with a mainly »»»
