About the Artist

Trace Adkins continues to conquer new worlds. He has long been country music's alpha male, a man whose commanding presence and once-in-a-generation baritone have made him a pillar of the contemporary Nashville sound. But such are his other gifts--a restless intellect, wide-ranging interests, great ability as a communicator--that it was perhaps inevitable that his influence would spread well beyond the bounds of the genre.

In the past decade, Trace has made his mark as an actor, both on television and in the movies, an author, a voiceover artist and commercial spokesman, a social commentator, and a reality show participant. His effect on businessman and showman Donald Trump was such that after his initial and highly successful appearance on Celebrity Apprentice, he was invited back as a boardroom advisor. He has turned his entertainingly articulated views into a well-received book, A Personal Stand: Observations and Opinions from a Freethinking Roughneck, and has even inspired an action comic book series, Luke McBain, that has proven to be one of the genre's hottest sellers.

"I guess it's that I'm not afraid to get outside my comfort zone and try new things," he says, adding, "I never do them just for what I consider the commercial value. I choose things I enjoy doing."

The obvious relish Trace brings to everything from talk show appearances to movie roles has made him one of the most widely visible of country's top-tier entertainers, and provides just the right counterpoint to the bottom line--his growing reputation as one of country's all-time greats.

The breadth and depth of his catalog points to the diversity and complexity of his musical approach and of his personality. He is the man who gave us one of modern-day country's rowdiest classics, "Honky Tonk Badonkadonk," and one of its most touching, "You're Gonna Miss This," which earned two of his four Grammy nominations, became his third chart-topping hit, and was named the ACM's Single of the Year. He is equally convincing across a musical spectrum that stretches from "Hot Mama" to "Songs About Me," from "(This Ain't No) Thinkin' Thing" to "Then They Do."

With the release of his latest, Cowboy's Back In Town, Trace launches a new chapter in one of the genre's most storied careers. Musically, he shows himself to be at the top of his game. The mix is classic Trace, with "Still Love You" serving as the anchor of the tender side, bringing that national treasure of a voice to bear on a declaration of eternal love in a first-rate meeting of sound and sentiment. On the other side, songs like "I Can Do That" and "Hold My Beer" find Trace bringing to life good-old-boy tales about the entertainment world and weddings, respectively. In fact, if the album leans in one direction, it would be toward that rowdy side.

"This is an album that has a smile on it," says Trace's friend, touring partner, and now label mate and label owner, Toby Keith. Their partnership took root during last year's "America's Toughest Tour," which saw the pair barnstorm through 29 cities, renewing their friendship and gaining fresh appreciation for each other's musical approaches. When Toby's Show Dog label merged with Universal Music, Trace expressed interest and Toby eagerly asked him to come aboard.

"This label is about getting the job done," says Trace, "but it's also about having fun in the process, and that's why we get into music in the first place."

It was a natural step for Trace and Toby to continue touring together.

"We come from very similar backgrounds," says Trace. "We both worked in the oil fields and we played a lot of the same clubs on the Southwest circuit. We're both pretty independent and don't mind speaking our minds, and there seems to be a lot of crossover among our fans. It's good for everybody and it just adds to the excitement around this whole new chapter in my professional life."

That sense of excitement is certainly reflected in the work Trace has done with producers Michael Knox and Kenny Beard, drawing on songs from writers who have penned many of his hits--Casey Beathard, Tony Lane and Beard, among others. Lane, Marcel, and David Lee provided the CD's first single, "This Ain't No Love Song."

"I've always been a huge Tony Lane fan," says Trace. "I've cut a half dozen or so of his songs over my career. This song is just so cleverly written, about a guy trying to convince a girl the song is not about her when she and he knows it is but he's not going to admit it. It was a no-brainer."

Trace himself wrote the title track with Beard and another good friend, Jeff Bates.

"They were on the bus with me and we pulled up to a fairground in Iowa and I looked out and realized I had been there before.'Cowboy's back in town,' I said, and we started writing it and finished it that night. I remember we did the work tape going down the highway in the front lounge of the bus."

In addition to the traditional CD release, Cowboy's Back In Town is being released in a deluxe version featuring four additional tracks, offering Trace's fans the opportunity to dig even deeper into his music.

Its obvious Trace has lost none of the enjoyment of the creative process that took him into music in the first place. A native of Sarepta, Louisiana, he worked as a pipe fitter on an offshore drilling rig and spent time in a gospel quartet before making a name for himself in the honky-tonks of Texas and Louisiana. He moved to Nashville in 1992 and did construction work while he sang at night and looked for his break. It came when then-Capitol Records president Scott Hendricks spotted him playing in a workingman's bar and signed him. Trace's one-of-a-kind voice and his knack for bringing believability to every song did the rest.

His first album, the platinum Dreamin' Out Loud, produced three Top 3 hits, including his first #1, "Thinkin' Thing." More than twenty of his singles would hit the Top 20 and give him the platform from which everything else would flow.

His videos have been fan-voted Top Video of the Year three times on GAC, and "Honky-Tonk Badonkadonk" was voted #2 Video of the Decade by CMT. Trace became a member of the Grand Ole Opry in 2003, has been a guest on virtually every talk show on national television, and is currently celebrity spokesman for BC Headache Powder. He teamed with his friend Blake Shelton on the latter's recent single, "Hillbilly Bone," which went to the top of the charts and was named ACM Vocal Event of the Year, and, to top it all off, he was voted Country's Sexiest Man by the readers of Country Weekly.

As his visibility increased, Trace was able to expand any number of heartfelt charitable and patriotic efforts. His initial appearance on Celebrity Apprentice was prompted by the opportunity it gave him to raise money for the Food Allergy and Anaphylaxis Network. He is a spokesman for the Wounded Warrior Project, an organization helping severely wounded veterans, and was given the group's Community Service award recently. He has performed frequently for military personnel, including two tours through the Middle East with the USO, which has given him its Merit Award. Trace has taken part in an Extreme Makeover: Home Edition episode that rebuilt a home for a Dallas SWAT team member badly injured in a shooting, and he performed recently in honor of those who died on United Airline's Flight 93 in Pennsylvania on 9/11. That dedication to worthwhile causes led Country Radio Broadcasters to give Trace their Artist Humanitarian Award in 2010.

At his core, Trace remains first and foremost a musician dedicated to making the best music he can--as enjoyably as possible.

"You can't have any more fun than going into the studio and making records with your friends," he says, "and that's what I did with Cowboy's Back In Town. I think that shows in the way it sounds."

5.0 out of 5 stars Trace Adkins- "Cowboy's Back In Town" September 18, 2010
By Riley
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Trace's new album is by far one of his best to this date. It is an up-beat album full of his classic humor and twists on words. I've heard it being said the album has a smile of it. It ranges from get in your face songs, such as Whoop A Man's Ass", to the sexy frolic of "Brown Chicken, Brown Cow", and the till death do we part song of "Hold My Beer" (with his own marriage dialog) to the tender side of Trace in "Break Her Fall", "A Little Bit Of Missin You" and "Between the Rainbows and the Rain". Not a bad song on the album and you won't be sorry you bought it or sorry if you don't.

4.0 out of 5 stars Raucous, rowdy modern country novelty songs August 17, 2010
Format:Audio CD
Trace Adkins
"Cowboy's Back In Town"
(Universal/Show Dog, 2010)
-----------------------------------------------------
A robust, macho set, recorded for Toby Keith's Show Dog record label... The production is big, loud, full of Southern Rock guitars and thumping drums and crushing downbeats... It's also pretty high tech and a little gimmicky in some parts, hinting at the Big & Rich school of country-rock crossover. More than anything, though, this album is marked by Trace Adkins -- an artist I admire -- sounding an awful lot like his host, Toby Keith, both in the macho-novelty repertoire and the snarling, bearlike delivery. Of course, Adkins, who stands about six-foot-seventy, is an imposing, macho figure in his own right, but his individual artistic voice seems lost in this barrage of mega-manliness, particularly his ability to drive home weepers and ballads.

Still, there's some funny stuff here, and this album is sure to be a crowd-pleaser, especially for all them beer-drinkin', girl-chasin', red-blooded manly-men who love cranking their Top Forty country up as loud as they can. There's the album's opener, "Brown Chicken Brown Cow" (about two farmhands who are so busy getting busy that no work is getting done in the barn... ) or the humorous "Hold My Beer," about a good ol' boy who can barely put his brewsky down long enough to kiss the bride. And "Ala-Freakin-Bama," where a cutoff-clad Alabama hottie meets a Skynyrd-friendly Bubba, or "Hell, I Can Do That," where Bubba is watching TV and thinkin', heck that Nascar stuff doesn't look so hard... In short, this is a brash, novelty oriented album that sells Trace short as a balladeer, but has some pretty amusing songs.

3.0 out of 5 stars Go away & come back again. August 28, 2010
Format:Audio CD
Like Izcait, I too am an unabashed Trace Adkins, having followed him through his blossoming career, tracking his high points & his low ones, & remaining faithful to the belief that like artists such as Toby Keith, George Strait, Alan Jackson, et all, his best years (and albums) are yet to come. He possesses one of the greatest voices in country music, and has the ability to rock the house, charge the heart, & soothe the savage beast, depending on what he is singing. However, unlike Izcait, I am not going to award an album five stars, when it simply does not deliver the quality Trace's previous outings have. I'm no doubt going to be in the minority here, but hey, this album is not a scratch on "Dreamin' Out Loud" (my personal favourite of all his records), or any of his other albums. On this album, Trace excells with his ballads. These are clearly the high points here. Numbers like "Hell I Can Do That", "Still Love You", "Break Her Fall", & "A Little Bit Of Missin' You", are powerhouses, with Trace's great voice delivering them with real passion & sensitivity. Yet Of the more up-tempo tracks, only the title track, "Cowboy's Back In Town" seeems to make the cut. The rest are mediocre at best. Then there's "Ala-Freakin'-Bama". This song stands alone as a true example of what the word abysmal means. Surely not even the most generous minded person would consider this piece of literary garbage suitable for inclusion on any country album. Perhaps it could be added to a compilation albums featuring artists such as Slayer, Megadeath, and the like, where this would probably be right at home. C'mon Trace, you're one of the best country artists in the business; don't waste your great talent on the likes of this. Your fans deserve better. Three stars - and I'm being generous.

3.0 out of 5 stars Nothing "NEW" here. August 18, 2010
Format:Audio CD
You hope that an artist can continue to devolepe and grow. And put out better quality material than on the cd before. Trace has not done that with this effort. There are a few songs that may be a bit catchy. But, he falls short making this cd more interesting than the last. The true fans may like it but, I lost interest in it after one listen through.
