Trace Adkins has signed with the recently re-launched Verge Records, led by longtime producer/engineer Mickey Jack Cones. Verge Records also has an exclusive partnership with distribution and label services company ONErpm.
Cones has previously worked on several Adkins albums, including 2006’s Dangerous Man, 2010’s Cowboy’s Back in Town, 2011’s Proud to Be Here, 2013’s The King’s Gift and Love Will…, and Adkins’ most recent albums, Jesus and Jones, and Something’s Going On.
“Trace is a country music icon. We are beyond elated to be teaming up with him on this next chapter of his career. I’ve had the privilege of working on all but two of Trace’s records since 2005, so I don’t take this partnership lightly. We have something to prove, and we’re going to prove it!” Cones said.
“I am excited about my merge with Verge. My desire to create and release new music is as strong now as when I first started,” Adkins said. “Mickey Jack and I have collaborated on several projects, and I look forward to several more.”
“Better Off,” the first single released under Adkins’ new partnership with Verge Records, will release March 20. The track was penned by Hillary Lindsey, Corey Crowder and Liz Rose. Adkins’ The Way I Wanna Go Tour will launch April 15 in Lancaster, Pennsylvania.
