Trace Adkins has had an up and down career the last few years. His singles have always been up and down on the charts. He finds huge hits and mixes them in with interesting song choices.
Now Trace is ready for a new album and the first single was just released.
Them Lips (On Mine) – Trace Adkins
You know…I like this song. The melody is catchy. It’s something you can groove back and forth with and really enjoy for a few minutes. It’s a country song that is pretty standard in lyrics and the story. It’s about this guy that loves the woman he’s with. He enjoys her company and really enjoys her beauty especially those luscious lips.
The guy wants the gal to just stop fussing over everything and put those lips right on his. It’s a simple country song about love and wanting to spend some enjoyed time between two people.
Trace has been on an interesting path since leaving his longtime label and joining forces with Toby Keith. The partnership has yielded some big hits and I think Them Lips has a chance to be another big song on the radio charts. But I’m not sure it’s the kind of song that takes Trace back to the top of the charts.
Trace’s entire career has really gone back and forth like this. He comes out with some good songs that do alright on the charts and he mixes in a few smash hits that change his career and bring him to the top.
I think we’ll have to wait for that game changing song from the next single, but for now I think we can enjoy Them Lips.
