Bio

Trace Adkins is an American country music artist. He made his debut in 1996 with the album Dreamin' Out Loud, released on Capitol Records Nashville.

A one-time pipe fitter on an offshore oil rig, Adkins worked his way up in the music business. In his younger days, he sang in a gospel group and then went on to perform in small honky-tonks and clubs throughout Louisiana and Texas.

He made his move to Nashville in 1992 and never looked back.

Over the past decade, Adkins has racked up a long string of hits including Every Light In The House Is on, (This Ain't) No Thinkin' Thing, I Left Something Turned On At Home, Hot Mama, I'm Tryin,' Rough & Ready, Arlington, Songs About Me, Honky Tonk Badonkadonk, Ladies Love Country Boys, I Wanna Feel Something and I Got My Game On.

He has sold millions of records, won dozens of industry awards and become a member of the prestigious Grand Ole Opry.

He has made countless appearances on national television including The Tonight Show, The Late Show with David Letterman, The Conan O'Brien Show, Last Call with Carson Daly, The Late, Late Show With Craig Ferguson and has been featured in numerous mainstream articles such as People, USA TODAY and Entertainment Weekly.

Adkins has even tested the waters at voice-over work and acting, making special guest appearances on sitcoms like Yes, Dear and My Name is Earl.

The double-platinum Songs About Me release in 2005 featured the monster hit, Honky Tonk Badonkadonk. The song ruled the country charts, with digital downloads surpassing 800,000 and more than 500,000 ringtone purchases.

His 2006 release of Dangerous Man scored the biggest first-week sales in his career and became his third CD to make its entry at the top of the charts. The album quickly received a Gold-certification from the RIAA and produced three more hit singles.

A seasoned performer, Adkins consistently performs to sell-out venues all across the country with his hard-driving stage show that's chalked full of hits.
