Trace Adkins Reveals Debut BBR Project, New Single, Tour

Trace Adkins has revealed the title, album art, track listing and tour in support of his debut project on The BBR Music Group’s Wheelhouse Records.

Titled Something’s Going On, Adkins’ 12th studio album and first release in four years, will be available March 31. The project’s first single, “Watered Down,” will be released to radio March 13. A lyric video for “Watered Down” has been released ahead of the radio add date.

“When I first heard ‘Watered Down’ I felt an immediate connection with what I wanted to say,” shares Adkins. “A man comes to a point in his life where he begins to reflect on his past and what he’s learned and that’s what fueled this song. If you’ve led the kind of life I’ve led, at some point you have to temper your vices.”

Produced by Mickey Jack Cones, the 12-track project boasts some of Nashville’s top songwriters including Tyler Farr, Craig Campbell, Terry McBride, Brett Beavers, Casey Beathard, Trevor Rosen, Matt Jenkins, Troy Johnson, Andrew Dorff, Tommy Lee James, Josh Osborne, Phil O’Donnell, and Shane McAnally.

Adkins’ 2017 Tour will launch on February 4 in Orlando, Florida, with an initial 30 dates continuing through August. VIP packages will be available for select dates. Fans who purchase concert tickets will receive a physical copy of Something’s Going On. Visit for full details.
