Adkins Roars With Pride on Release Week

Trace Adkins is kicking off a busy release week promoting new album Proud To Be Here. He’s set for a street-date appearance on the Today Show (8/2), followed by Fox & Friends (8/3), and visits next week to Piers Morgan Tonight and Chelsea Lately. Adkins will also perform on the primetime concert special CMA Music Festival: Country’s Night to Rock, airing Sun., Aug. 14 on ABC.

Adkins says his latest project is very autobiographical. Lead single “Just Fishin’” is about father-daughter bonding, so it was fitting that the video was shot at his family farm and features youngest daughter, Trinity. The Michael Knox produced track is reacting with fans and is already No. 3 on MusicRow’s CountryBreakout Chart.

For the remainder of the Show Dog Universal release Adkins teamed with co-producers Mark Wright and Kenny Beard. The title track particularly resonates with Adkins. “Chris Wallin, Aaron Barker and Ira Dean wrote that song for me,” he says. “I’ve been close to death several times in my life, and they know me well enough to know what I’ve carried away from that.”

Ten songs are on the regular edition of the album, or fans can purchase a 14-song deluxe set. Target is also offering a 16-song package, which exclusively contains the Blake Shelton duet, “If I Was a Woman.”
