Product Description

For Comin' on Strong, Adkins rejoins producer Scott Hendricks, who discovered the rangy Louisiana native in the '90s, signed him to a recording contract, and helmed his initial hits. On Chrome, Adkins's previous release, producer Dan Huff had taken him the predictable pop route--and scored a top five album--but apart from his perfect fit with blue-collar themes, Adkins never sounded completely at home with the album's gussied-up backgrounds. Now Hendricks brings him back to a rootsier sound and makes the most of his distinctive, deep-sea baritone, the likes of which country hasn't heard since Ed Bruce's early-'80s hits. "Missing You," which captures the loneliness of a oil driller far from home, is one of several tunes that show a new maturity and believability in the singer's material, just as "I'd Sure Hate to Break Down Here" and "One Nightstand" again prove Adkins's ability to convey vulnerability in an ultra-masculine fashion. Yet none of those tracks are likely to receive as much attention as "Hot Mama," a tune of middle-aged lust that's sure to keep Adkins popular with both polyester-clad Wal-Mart shoppers and jaded radio programmers, the real gatekeepers of any country singer's career. --Alanna Nash

5.0 out of 5 stars Definately Coming On Strong! December 3, 2003
Format:Audio CD
Had to find some polyester to go to Walmart to get this!!! Worth being called a Polyester-clad Walmart Shopper!!!
From Hot Mama to Rough and Ready this CD has a little of everything! When Trace sings Then Came the Night you just want to close your eyes because you can visualize every detail as you listen to Trace's voice on this song. Make you feel just like you are there.
I think this is Trace's best work yet. Anyone that loves good country music get this CD. Trace is putting the word country back in country music on this CD! If he does not get nominated for any awards after this CD there is definate kick backs going on....
The songs are great and the cover is well worth the price of the CD.....

5.0 out of 5 stars Trace Has Done It Once Again! December 2, 2003
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Trace Adkins new CD "Coming On Strong" is the perfect mix of country for his wonderful baritone voice. With the first track "Hot Mama" he tells it like it is about women wives and mothers still looking hot in their husband's eyes not matter how they look to everyone else and the phrase "Do You Wanna" has married couples saying "YES!" His wonderful ballads like "Then Came The Night" are truly magical when he sings then. And "Rough & Ready" is a upbeat honk-tonk masterpiece. I give this CD "Coming On Strong" 5 stars and it should be added to everyone's collection that enjoys great music.

5.0 out of 5 stars Not just another pretty face June 10, 2004
Format:Audio CD
In an industry filled with popstar wannabes, this man reminds you of why you love country music. His gorgeous baritone swings from melancholy to sensual to cocky in this, his best, CD. Great road trip music - but make sure your friends don't mind your singing along at the top of your voice!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great cd, though I liked Chrome better. January 17, 2004
By Peter
Format:Audio CD
I'm giving this cd five stars, as it's an excellent cd. There are so many great cuts on this disc, and i really am glad i bought it. It's almost a tie with Chrome for best cd of his career. Almost. Although there are some amazing standout tracks such as One Hot Momma, One Night Stand, Rough And Ready, and a few others, i still think Chrome is Trace Adkin's masterpiece. But that could be because the Chrome cd was what introduced me to Trace Adkins in the first place. The new cd will cement his place in our hearts as one of the most unique voices out there in new country today. There's no one in country music today with Trace's beautiful rich mile-deep baritone that is very comforting to listen to. There are so many good tracks on the new cd. The first single is One Hot Momma, and it's a genuine hit, with a scorching-hot video to go with it. Trace has never looked more confident and sexy in that video. As usual, the songs are well-crafted and gerat to listen to. Many of his songs tell stories, as the song One Night Stand does, in telling the story of a married man who has a one-nighter with a woman after his plane gets snowed in at the airport, and the repercusions afterward. The song is very emotional and you'll feel the painful emotions as very honest and heartfelt. Even though Trace is just singing a song someone else wrote, the way he sings it you would swear he's singing as if he went through it himself. One Of Those Nights is another potential top ten hit with a good driving beat to it that makes it a good dance song. Rough And Ready is the final cut on the cd and it is amazing. You gotta hear this song to believe it!This song is what country music is all about. The energy, the words, the way Trace sings them. Read more ›

5.0 out of 5 stars Trace definately Coming on Strong December 2, 2003
Format:Audio CD
This is the CD I have been waiting for all year, and it was well worth the wait! From Hot Mama to Rough and Ready Trace has one hit after another. It's an adult theme CD. Not a song on the CD that I don't like. Hot Mama is a very good song but my favorite is ROUGH AND READY! I heard this at several of his concerts and could not wait for the CD for this song! The only thing better then hearing this song on the CD is seeing Trace do it live!
Coming on Strong is a song about a tough Cowboy falling and to hear Trace sing this song with that strong voice just makes you want to melt. Then Came the Night makes you feel like you are there and can visualize what he is singing. Very special song about the first time. I'd Sure Hate to Break Down Here is a song about leaving and running out of gas and running out of cigarettes and thinking about what he left behind and hoping he don't break down (in more ways then one). Missing You is about a Oil Driller working and just missing the girl at home very well done. One of Those Nights talks about having a good day after one night with her song. Untamed is about staying untamed, typical Trace attitude. Then I Wake Up starts about her and then he wakes up on the floor besides the bed. One Nightstand is a beautifully written song about a man sitting there with a bible and gun and which one is going to save him after he had a one nightstand. Baby's Gone is about a wake up call after his baby left him. Then we come to my favorite ROUGH AND READY. Makes you want to try to sing and dance along but those words come so fast....Favorite words in that song is Ain't no boy toy - I'll rock you steady - Rough and ready!!!
Buy this CD and you will not be disappointed. Greatest CD out this year!!!!
Trace's voice on this CD just makes you want to melt. Every song on this CD is about real life situations.
