Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

It's no surprise that the best cuts on Songs About Me are produced by Scott Hendricks, the man who gave Trace Adkins his major-label deal and best understands the psyche of a 6-foot-6 Louisianan with a past full of close calls, high emotions, and deep soul searching (getting shot and nearly dying, later going to rehab). Adkins, with his tender-tough, bottom-of-the-riverbed baritone, sings country music because he's lived its eventful story songs. That's something he celebrates in the title song, which deftly lays out the reasons for the genre's popularity, even to folks who wouldn't ordinarily gravitate to the twangy side of the radio dial. Perhaps anyone could make that song a hit, but it takes a singer of far more subtlety to deliver the incredibly well-written (by Jeremy Spillman and Dave Turnbull) "Arlington," a uniquely different type of war song. Elsewhere, Adkins runs the gamut of themes, from the heartfelt ballad "I Learned How to Love from You" to the randy "Baby I'm Home" to the high-octane "Honky Tonk Badonkadonk" (produced by Dann Huff). If some of it seems like awfully familiar territory, Adkins elevates it to the art of blue-collar soul. --Alanna Nash

5.0 out of 5 stars It's Called HONOR, not Exploitation! August 27, 2005
Format:Audio CD
While compelled to write a review of this album, I was further compelled to write a review after reading the review by Mrs. A. Browning, a supposed wife of a soldier, who denounced the album as exploitation and suggested that others not buy the album.

Country singers such as Trace and Toby are not exploiting our soldiers in an effort to "cash in," as Mrs. Browning suggests. Rather they are among the rare and the few who have the glandular fortitude to honor our men in uniform in this age of political incorrectness and anti-war fervor.

A true wife of a soldier would honor the sacrifice that her husband is making for his country. She wouldn't denounce it. No, it's not romantic, but it's something to be honored. This is specifically what Trace does in his song, "Arlington." He honors the sacrifice that our soldiers have made. He honors their lives and their deaths. He not only honors it, he memorializes it, capturing it in a song that will bring anyone to tears. It's a tearful subject, and it's not one that should go unappreciated.

We need to remember. We need to remember the men, their sacrifices, and their lives. Most of all, we need to remember that we wouldn't be celebrating our lives as free Americans were it not for those buried at the Arlington National Cemetary.

Trace ... thank you for honoring the dead by capturing their essence in song. I appreciate your willingness to honor the dead by singing of them in song. The hearts of those men were beautiful, and they willingly gave all for many who will never give any.

Purchase the album for the quality of the music, which is excellent. If you're anti-war and anti-Bush, perhaps, you should go visit Michael Moore's site. He has more than enough hatred to drown you in.

5.0 out of 5 stars Songs about Trace February 18, 2006
Format:Audio CD
I have to say, I've been a long-time fan of Trace Adkins. He has a very beautiful Baritone Voice when he sings that just melts your heart. All his songs have a special meaning to them, some are sad and Heartfelt, others are Happy and Upbeat. One of the stand-out songs on this album is the song "Arlington", it's a beautiful strong Patriotic song to a Fallen soldier. This album is definetly worth buying for your collection, don't miss out!!!!

4.0 out of 5 stars "Songs" Has A Universal Appeal March 25, 2005
Format:Audio CD
Prime Cuts: Arlington, Honky Tonk Badonkadent, I Learned How to Love You

Despite the stiff and often aggressive competition, country music has remained sacrosanct. On the title track, "Songs about Me," Adkins uncovers the genre's tenacity: "(they are) songs about loving and living/and good hearted women and family and God/yeah they're all just songs about me." Not since Clinton Gregory's "(If It Weren't For Country Music) I'd Go Crazy," has there been a better apologetic paean. With a finesse that is moving, this bluesy guitar driven midtempo title track is only proleptic of the arête material to follow. On the whole, "Songs about Me" is perhaps this lanky Texan's most balanced and amicable CD. Attributive to the album's affectation is that most of these songs come from Music Row's finest scribes including River Rutherford, Tim Mensy, Tom Shapiro, George Teren, Shane Minor, Tony Martin and Ed Hill amongst other maestros.

Charming as the title track is, "Arlington" is even more beguiling. A sensitive ballad told from the perspective of a fallen soldier being laid to rest a "thousand stones away" from his granddad in the same field of honor, this is heart wrenching stuff. Adkins' muscular yet mesmeric baritone has never been utilized to greater effect than on the sensitive power ballad "I Learned How to Love You." Co-written by Tim Mensy and Steve Nathan, this piano and string laden number is postcard perfect for being a radio darling. Possessing the same romantic vibe is the more upbeat Shane Minor and Wendell Mobley's "Find Me a Preacher;" this time finding a lovesick Adkins ready to pounce on the thought of tying the knot.

5.0 out of 5 stars Trace Adkins August 21, 2005
Format:Audio CD
Trace has always been a favorite of mine. This song Arlington is just fantastic. Any funeral you have been to for a Vet it gives you a chill right down your spine. It has a positive outlook to death; and it is a song that stops you right in your tracks. Trace's entire CD is great; but you have to listen to Arlington.

5.0 out of 5 stars Trace Adkins, Songs About Me October 11, 2005
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I love Trace Adkins. His songs just really touch me. I bought this CD because of one song in particular, Arlington. It really touched me because we had just returned from Washington, DC this summer when I heard this song. Having just come from Arlington National Cemetery, it just really made me feel my American roots and how grateful I am for this country and the men and women who sacrifice their lives to keep us free. Of course, I enjoy the entire CD, not a disappointing song on the disc.
