Adkins makes label debut

Tuesday, January 24, 2017 – Trace Adkins will release his 12th studio album and debut for a Broken Bow Records subsidiary in late March. Adkins also will tour behind the release.

"Something's Going On" drops March 31 on Wheelhouse Records. "Watered Down" is the first single.

"When I first heard 'Watered Down,' I felt an immediate connection with what I wanted to say," Adkins said. "A man comes to a point in his life where he begins to reflect on his past and what he's learned and that's what fueled this song. If you've led the kind of life I've led, at some point you have to temper your vices."

Tyler Farr, Craig Campbell and Shane McAnally had a hand in writing several songs on the 12-song disc, which was produced by Mickey Jack Cones.

The track list is:
1. "Ain't Just The Whiskey Talkin'" (Terry McBride, Brett Beavers)
2. "Jesus And Jones" (Tyler Farr, Jim McCormick, Casey Beathard)
3. "Watered Down" (Matt Jenkins, Trevor Rosen, Shane McAnal
July)
4. "Something's Going On" (Chris Cavanaugh, Mark Stephen Jones)
5. "If On
July You Were Lone
July" (Jon Coleman, Troy Johnson)
6. "Gonna Make You Miss Me" (Tommy Lee James, Matt Nolan, Andrew Dorff)
7. "I'm Gone" (Craig Campbell, Max T. Barnes)
8. "Country Boy Problems" (Tommy Lee James, Josh Osborne)
9. "Lit" (Mickey Jack Cones, Monty Criswell, Derek George)
10. "Still A Soldier" (Phil O'Donnell, Wade Kirby)
11. "Whippoorwills And Freight Trains" (Phil O'Donnell, Jeff Middleton, Brandon Kinney)
12. "Hang" (Lynn Hutton, Phil O'Donnell)

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 ...
