Adkins kicks off Xmas tour Friday

Thursday, November 13, 2014 – Trace Adkins will kick off The Christmas Show 2014 on Friday at West Point in Highland Falls, N.Y., continuing through Dec. 21 in Clearwater, Fla.

Adkins is continuing the tradition he started last year - giving reverent, family-friendly shows that feature humorous and historical narration as well as, Celtic carols that he performs with his 12-piece "Sarepta Symphony." Scottish singer, Alyth McCormack will join Trace at each stop.

Yesterday, on HLN's Morning Express with Robin Meade, Adkins said, "It's old, traditional carols and we put the Celtic treatment to them - bagpipes, violins and everything. Musically, it's the most beautiful thing I've ever had the chance to be a part of."

Adkins recently released "The Christmas Show" DVD. It features performances from McCormack, Andrea Zonn and Lily Costner, behind the scenes interviews with Adkins, and was filmed during last year's tour stop at Ruth Eckerd Hall in Clearwater, Fla.

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 ...
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 ...
