I have to say I really love this new (at the time I'm typing this review up) album. From beginning to end, it's a great compilation and just further seals my status as a fan of this very genuine artist.

Radio listeners and video watchers got earlier exposure to Just Fishin', which is just one of several songs on here with much deeper meanings.

Starting out with the title track, Proud to Be Here, this album begins with a track that is, in the words of the artist, fairly auto-biographical. At this point in Trace Adkins life, as he has noted in interviews, he's just proud to have stuck around in the music business and be as successful as he has. Looking a little deeper though, he is also, as with Just Fishin' singing about much more.

Million Dollar View is a fun song that is the type that I've offered up to my fiance as my own opinion of her. It's a non-traditional love song that tells a woman just how valuable she is to you.

Days Like This is a fairly quiet ballad that is just calming to listen to. Yet another love song in disguise.

That's What You Get picks up the tempo and pace and gets back to a more rockin' sound. Another song about giving your woman what she needs.

Just Fishin' is a beautiful ballad about quality time spent with your children. Something that many people don't remind themselves to do as frequently as they should.

It's a Woman Thing is another up tempo fun Trace Adkins song. In this case, as a member of the male portion of the population, I suppose the song is more fun for me, but most woman would probably enjoy the tune as well as there's just so much truth buried in the lyrics.

Prime Cuts: Just Fishin', Days Like This, Always Gonna Be That Way

On his tenth album of original material Adkins has turned red necked to red eyed. No longer a mischievous lout, "Proud to be Me" finds a mature and sensitive Adkins. While this pony tailed macho man's previous disc "Cowboy's Back in Town" was a high octane belligerent effort filled with mostly rockers, "Proud to Be Here" is a reflective collection rifled with ruminations on true love, family life and the glorious bliss of living in the South. And for fans who have been beguiled by how Adkins' deep gruff baritone can cause a ballad to light up the heart, there are spades of them here for indulgence. Adkins is also wise enough not to fall into the perennial trap of penning too many tracks himself and thus diluting his song writing prowess. This time round Adkins has only written one song in the standard version and two more cuts on the deluxe version. As a result of garnering songs from some of Nashville's most able scribes such as Aaron Barker, Casey Beathard, Rivers Rutherford, Ray Scott, David Lee Murphy and Dallas Davidson, the quality of the songs are sturdier in their melodic structures and the lyrics show more depth and dimension.

Of the songs that really cause the heart to flutter, "Just Fishin'" is a turbo. Calling to mind Adkins' smash "You're Gonna Miss This," "Just Fishin'" is another brilliant father/daughter song that trumps on the details of how the protagonist tries to spend time and love with his daughter. To hear a big man like Adkins singing about ballet shoes, training wheels and kittens only testifies to the transforming power of a father's love.

Trace continues to impress me with his ability to sing meaningful songs like Semper Fi, touching like Just Fishin' and fun songs like Dam* you Bubba. I rarely like every song on a CD, but I do enjoy this one.

Trace Adkins' latest release "Proud to Be Here" surpasses my expectations. The songs reveal numerous musical styles, and show off his amazing vocal range. I enjoy hearing opposite perspectives about relationships from those full of compassion and devotion, such as "Million Dollar View" and "Just Fishin'" to the light-hearted "It's a Woman Thang" and "If I was a Woman". I actually cried listening to Semper Fi. What an incredible song.

I've only picked out a few songs to comment on here, but after repeatedly listening to "Proud to Be Here", I still cannot pick out a favorite song or two. It's as if the entire CD tells stories from complimentary perspectives. Each time I listen to it I hear different nuances - a tribute to the gift that Trace Adkins has, and fortunately share with us.

Once again Trace has not let me down with another one of his outstanding cd's. As always Trace fills his cd with feeling, passion, humor and love. The so called rollercoaster ride he puts us on everytime he puts out a cd always leaves you laughing, crying, or reflecting on memories in your life. Trace always sings songs that he believes in and can relate to, which gives you an idea of what type of man he is and what he stands for. Trace gets your attention from the very first song and the 2 live songs on the exclusive edition shows the fun he has at his shows. I can't even pick a favorite song right now as I love them all. "If I Were A Woman" is just hilarious and who better than Blake Shelton to do this song with. "Damn You Bubba" is another song that shows Trace humorous side. Trace gives his cd a personel touch when he adds his own comments at the end of some of the songs. I love Trace idea of love songs with "Million Dollar View" and "Love Buzz". Keeps it sexy without getting sappy. LOVE IT, LOVE IT, LOVE IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
