Country star Trace Adkins was inducted into The Louisiana Music Hall of Fame during his tour stop at Dixie Landin’ in Baton Rouge, LA on Saturday, June 21st.

Adkins, a Louisiana native, was joined on stage by Mike Shepherd, the President and Executive Director of The Louisiana Music Hall of Fame, who presented Adkins with the award and an official statement signed by Louisiana Governor, Bobby Jindal.

The rugged entertainer has always honored his hometown, even naming his band the Sarepta Gentleman’s Club after his hometown of Sarpeta, LA. Adkins is also looking forward to returning to his hometown next week to play a special show at the Muddy Bottoms ATV & Recreation Park on Saturday, July 5th.

 

Trace Adkins Returns to the Road

After a six-month hiatus, country star Trace Adkins returned to the stage with a full-force set that turned the Starland Ballroom into a downright honky tonk last night (June 5) in Sayreville, NJ. It was the first performance of his summer tour and the consummate entertainer was greeted by a massive roar from the crowd, prompting Adkins to hit the gas on a rockin’ night of big grins, hits, and new material. In his first show after his own personal setbacks, he acknowledged how happy he was to be back.

“It’s good to be back on the road. That’s what we do. That’s my life. I’d die if I’m not on the road,” said Trace, taking his hat off to the crowd.

He acknowledged his gratitude and the fans gave it right back when they stole the first chorus of “You’re Gonna Miss This.” The surprised singer and his band simply supplied the music as the crowd belted the lyrics on their own.

For the first time, he performed his new opposites-attract ode, “It All Adds Up To Us.” He told the crowd, “I’m having a good time! I’m not gonna tell you all my secrets tonight but I’ve been writing and have a new album coming out soon.” He laughed when promising, “I’m gonna space out the new songs, so you don’t get p#ss@d at me!”

Emotional moments didn’t get in the way of Adkins giving the audience a true-to-form rockin’, stompin’ set of both heart-wringers and tongue-in-cheek, sly-dog hits.

He warned fans, “I try to be decent…but don’t feel like being decent tonight,” as he launched into the naughty new “Maintenance Man.”

As promised, Trace circled back to catalogue cuts from his expansive career, saying “I’ve gone back and picked some favorite album cuts. If you listen to those albums, some of the songs that never ended up on the radio…those songs are who I am.”

With that, he introduced “Girl in Texas,” a song celebrating its 20th anniversary. Adkins said he wrote it right after moving to Nashville. “It’s the first song I ever wrote that was worth anything. It was a true story. You gotta write what’s true. This has become my favorite new old song.”

Other hits included “Honky Tonk Badonkadonk,” Every Light In the House,” “Ladies Love Country Boys,” “Chrome,” and he closed the show with another new, soon-to-be fan favorite, “Take It From Me.”

With a celebratory bow, Trace channeled King Kong when he beat his chest, threw his arms up, basking in applause and headed out to hit the road once again.

This weekend, Trace will perform at the Sherman Theater Summer Stage at Mt. Airy Casino Resort in Mt.Pocono, PA (Friday) and The Concert Venue at Harrah’s Atlantic City in Atlantic City, NJ (Saturday). He is backed by his band, the Sarepta Gentlemen’s Club, Wayne Addleman (steel guitar, guitars), Jon Coleman (keyboards), Mark Gillespie (guitars), John Richardson (drums), Brian Wooten (guitars), and session ace Mike Brignardello (bass).

Trace Adkins Ready to Hit the Road on Nationwide Tour

trace adkins

After a very tough year, Trace Adkins is ready to hit the road on brand new nationwide tour. The past year has had more downs than ups for country music singer Trace Adkins. He struggled with addiction, losing his father, rehab, and a divorce. After taking some time off the grid, Trace is back.

I’m excited, recharged and ready to get back on the road. I owe a debt of gratitude to everyone for the outpouring of encouragement and support over the past few months. It’s hard to put into words how much comfort you take from hearing ‘We’ve got your back.’ So these shows are for you guys – thanks.”

Trace returns to the stage this summer with his six-piece band, the Sarepta Gentleman’s Club. See tour dates below.
