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.

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 ...
