In his 25-year career in Country music, Trace Adkins has sold over 11 million albums, charted over 20 singles, earned numerous awards and GRAMMY® nominations, and garnered over two billion music streams. A Grand Ole Opry member for nearly two decades, the Louisiana native is known for dynamic baritone and fiery, always-memorable live performances, and has expanded his career to include film and TV acting.
Adkins' 1996 debut album, Dreamin' Out Loud, cracked the Top 5 of Billboard's Hot Country Songs chart with "Every Light In the House Is On" following with the #1 smash, "This Ain't (No Thinkin' Thing)." Since then, he has pioneered a mix of classic Country minded traditionalism and adventurous, good-natured showmanship, breaking open new avenues in modern Country through fun-filled hits like "Honky Tonk Badonkadonk" and "Hillbilly Bone."
Now, with 25 all-new tracks to celebrate the silver anniversary of his Dreamin' Out Loud debut, Adkins brings it all together with his newest album The Way I Wanna Go, doing exactly what he always has - mixing pure-Country reverence with standout collaborations featuring Blake Shelton, Melissa Etheridge, Snoop Dogg, Stevie Wonder and more. His newest single "Where The Country Girls At" features Luke Bryan and Pitbull.
Adkins is a spokesman for the Wounded Warrior Project, American Red Cross, and performs at United Service Organization (USO) tours. He was also named winner of the All-Star Celebrity Apprentice show in 2013, where he raised more than $1.5 million for the American Red Cross.
