Country star Trace Adkins is busy these days.
Trace Adkins is release a new album and preparing for a new movie. It’s an exciting time for the country superstar. The album will be the Trace’s first release on Toby Keith‘s record label Showdog-Universal. Since joining Showdog-Universal Trace Adkins has been hitting the road building anticipation for the new album Cowboy’s Back In Town with Toby Keith.
The first single from the album is This Ain’t No Love Song and it’s climbing the charts fast. It’s already in the top ten on the country singles charts and is heading for higher marks.
Trace’s label sent out a press release. Here are some snippets:
The album is vintage Trace Adkins, with songs ranging from those celebrating love, like the tender “Still Love You,” to those showcasing the rowdy side of country living, like the hilarious “Hold My Beer.” Adkins is at the top of his game vocally, and the album shows him re-emerging as a top-flight songwriter, as he penned the title track, “Cowboy’s Back In Town,” with friends Jeff Bates and Kenny Beard, who co-produced along with Michael Knox (Jason Aldean). He is joined by special guests Trailer Choir, whose cool-as-a-breeze vocals add the perfect touch to “Don’t Mind If I Don’t,” a song celebrating love as the perfect excuse to take it easy.
“There’s an excitement surrounding this whole new chapter in our lives,” says Adkins, “and it’s reflected in the work I’ve done on this record. The musicians I brought together are long-time friends, and it doesn’t get much better than that. I had a great time making it, I’m in a great spot creatively, and I think all that shows in the way it sounds.”
