Trace Adkins had already earned 10 Top 20 hits by this time in 2003. He'd had his first No. 1 single, "(This Ain't) No Thinkin' Thing," and had released four Top 10 albums, as well as a hits collection. But chances are, it's his induction into the Grand Ole Opry that makes Aug. 23 stand out in his mind.
Trace Adkins is one of country music's most colorful performers, but he set his roughneck image aside in 2008 for a guest role on the long-running soap opera, The Young and the Restless, which aired on April 9, 2008.
Trace Adkins is taking his high-energy, fun-loving live performance off the stage and into fans' homes with his first-ever live DVD. The country icon is all set to release his 'Live Country!' DVD on Jan. 13.
Trace Adkins loves this time of year. The rich history of the American Christmas celebration combined with national and personal traditions -- and a fair amount of nostalgia -- brings the country veteran to the Christmas tree as hurriedly as a young boy who has just learned what it's all about.
This year, Trace Adkins announced a second stint in an alcohol rehabilitation facility. He fell off the wagon during a cruise he was set to headline. It was his first taste of alcohol in over a decade -- since his last stay in rehab in 2002. While the singer seems to be taking full ownership of what happened on that boat, the incident shines a light on something not talked about very often.
Turning a personal tragedy into a hit record is tricky, and not just for all the normal reasons that it's difficult to make a song into a hit. Artists who write a great personal song may be hesitant to record it for months or years. Taste of Country writer Billy Dukes considers three powerful songs and three artists who dealt with the personal tragedies that inspired them in very different ways.
