Trace Adkins Signs New Record Deal

BBR Music Group is proud to announce the addition of superstar recording artist, actor and spokesman, Trace Adkins.

Since his debut in 1995, the renegade hit-maker has earned the respect of millions as an uncompromising straight-shooter. Every #1 anthem he’s recorded, every “outlaw with a heart of gold” role he’s played and every message he’s voiced as a spokesperson for the American Red Cross and the Wounded Warriors is delivered with integrity. His “my way or the highway” philosophy has always been evident in his music – now he’s joined a team of like-minded professionals.

“Trace Adkins has built a career and a legacy doing things his own way, never bowing to trends or society. He’s a straight shooter whose philosophy aligns with BBR Music Group’s independent, hands on approach. The music is what matters at BBR Music Group and that’s a viewpoint we share with Trace. We’re excited to welcome Trace to the BBR Music Group family and look forward to collaborating on new, amazing music,” said Benny Brown, President/ CEO of the BBR Music Group.

“When you’ve been doing this as long as I have, you don’t always get the feeling that the sky’s the limit,” said Trace. “I feel that way right now. When I sign up for something, I go all-in. Since Benny, Jon and I shook hands and said ‘let’s do this thing,’ we’ve been all-in together.”

“Trace Adkins is not only a Country music megastar but an accomplished film and TV actor who has become a highly-recognizable celebrity. In this incredibly fractured entertainment environment, it’s an extraordinary accomplishment to have achieved touch points across multiple forms of media. The BBR Music Group is ecstatic to add an artist of international acclaim to its roster,” said BBR Music Group EVP Jon Loba.

Currently, Adkins is recording his thirteenth studio album, this time with celebrated producer Mickey Jack Cones (Joe Nichols/ Randy Houser) and will release new music on the BBR Music Group in 2015.

Adkins is managed by Vector Management, booked by Creative Artists Agency (CAA) and represented by publicity agency Sunshine Sachs. He is an ASCAP affiliated songwriter.

Trace Adkins Kicks-off Summer Tour

There may be snow and ice in most of the country, but Trace Adkins has kicked off his Spring tour! The country star kicked off a new set of dates last weekend in his home state of Louisiana. He’ll play Bossier City, LA this weekend, sunny Orlando, FL the next…but he can’t outrun the cold for long. He will later venture north with tour stops in Pennsylvania, New York, Ontario, etc.

His most recent tour, Adkins’ annual Christmas Show Tour, showcased the reverent, Celtic-music-loving side of Trace. His current Spring/Summer dates return to his full catalogue of mega-hits.

Speaking of his catalogue of mega-hits, earlier this year, Trace released a live concert DVD, Trace Adkins: Live Country which was shot during last year’s summer tour stop at the Paramount Theatre in Huntington, NY. In addition to the 20-song set, the DVD also includes bonus footage including an interview where Trace shares stories of how he got his start, getting ready for the road and what his future plans are.

Trace brings back the hits that have fans roaring in the crowd as well as some newer songs the country star has been working on. On the road, he’ll be joined again by vocal duo Jill and Kate as well as his Sarepta Gentlemen’s Club which consists of Wayne Addleman (steel guitar, guitars), Jon Coleman (keyboards), Mark Gillespie (guitars), John Richardson (drums), Brian Wooten (guitars), and Luis Espaillat (bass).

Jake Owen, The Band Perry and Brantley Gilbert to Headline Country Summer


Northern California’s biggest country music festival, Country Summer presented by Lithia RAM of Santa Rosa, has announced 13 of 14 entertainers performing June 5 to 7 at Sonoma County Event Center at the Fairgrounds, 1350 Bennett Valley Road.

Executive Producer Alan Jacoby says plans are in the works for an audition competition inviting fans to vote for the country music act that will open the show. “Stay tuned,” he said. “We will be announcing details soon.”

Country Summer 2015 superstar headliners include Jake Owen on June 5, The Band Perry on June 6 and Brantley Gilbert on June 7.

In addition to the headliners, the June 5 lineup includes Gary Allan, Chris Young and Parmalee; June 6 includes Lee Brice, Jerrod Niemann, Frankie Ballard and The Swon Brothers; and June 7 includes Trace Adkins, Easton Corbin and Cassadee Pope.

Country Summer is produced by Impact Entertainment and Sonoma Media Group, the owner of Froggy 92.9 and other leading radio stations serving Sonoma County.

This year, Country Summer anticipates attracting more than 33,000 fans with more video walls and enhanced staging and sound. Between main acts on the Montgomery Village Stage, there will be a secondary stage featuring additional country musicians and groups.

While performances by country music artists are the main attraction, great festivals are more than great music. Country Summer is a destination country celebration with Western-themed attractions, an expanded 2015 Food Court with country-inspired delights and an array of libations to please every palette — from Bud Light for beer drinkers to wine and spirits at the Leese-Fitch Wine Garden and the Jack Daniel’s Saloon.

“Country Summer 2015 is off to a great start with an incredible lineup of country music’s most popular entertainers,” Jacoby said. “We are also very pleased to welcome our new presenting sponsor, Lithia RAM of Santa Rosa, as well as an array of new and second-time sponsors supporting the event.”

Daily tickets start from $69 for general admission, $99 for reserved seats. A limited number of discount three-day packages are available.  To purchase tickets, visit or call 800.514.3849 to order by phone.


Charlie Daniels 40th Anniversary Volunteer Jam Just Got Bigger!

Volunteer Jam

Just when you think Charlie Daniels 40th Anniversary Volunteer Jam can’t get any bigger, additional megastar performers are announced. Trace Adkins, Ted Nugent, Tracy Lawrence, Craig Morgan, Colt Ford, The Oak Ridge Boys and Michael W. Smith will all be appearing alongside the previously-announced Travis Tritt, Montgomery Gentry, Billy Ray Cyrus, The Kentucky Headhunters, The Outlaws and Lee Roy Parnell. The megastars will bind together to support the needs of American veterans through The Journey Home Project. Tickets to the once-in-a-lifetime event will be available beginning Friday, January 30 at 10 a.m. CST at the Bridgestone Arena box office and all Ticketmaster locations. Due to tremendous growth over its forty years of sell-out success, the legendary Volunteer Jam will take place for the first time at the Bridgestone Arena in downtown Nashville on August 12, 2015 and will be hosted by Sean Hannity and Storme Warren.

In 1974, The Charlie Daniels Band hosted the first-ever Volunteer Jam as a way of celebrating their first hometown sellout concert, never knowing how big the event would become — from being aired as a two-hour TV special produced by Dick Clark Productions, to earning national attention through the Jerry Lewis Telethon, to being broadcast LIVE around the world on Voice of America, the event experienced exponential growth with each passing year.

“I’m very excited to continue the Jam tradition,” said Daniels. I hope to see more Nashville Volunteer Jams in the future. I’m very, very excited to continue the Jam tradition forty years later. Ain’t it good to be alive, and be in Tennessee.”

The 2015 Charlie Daniels Volunteer Jam will benefit The Journey Home Project, the non-profit organization that Daniels serves as Chairman of the Board and whose mission is to connect donors to veterans’ organizations that can help meet their health care, education and career needs, as well as The Predators Foundation, which is devoted to funneling the excitement of professional sports towards the needs of the community.

Charlie Daniels 40th Anniversary Volunteer Jam presented by Copperweld is produced by David Corlew & Associates in association with Outback Concerts. 95.5 FM Nash ICON and WSM-AM serve as the official radio partners. Ticket prices start at $17.68 with limited VIP packages available.
